hey all, i have a 93 4 banger mx6 and was wondering if i can convert my drum brakes to disk brakes? If it is possible, around how much would this cost me? Thanks

I'm sure it's possible. But you probably need to check with a dealer or parts source to see if the master cylinders are the same internally and if the valve (not sure of the name) that distributes pressure to all 4 wheels is the same. Drum brakes may have different fluid requirements; I'm not positive if this applies on the MX-6 but it does on another car where someone toyed with the idea.

The parking brakes will be different, and you'll need the calipers/rotors and maybe different hubs (all of which can be had from a junkyard surely). If the fluid lines are different you'd need those too. Your best bet would be to park a drum brake car next to a disk one and see what all is similar / different.
