Nissan 4 spot caliper upgrade pics

Here are a few pics of my brake upgrades I have done on my VH.

Using factory parts like this is a good way of doing budget brake upgrades.
I'd like to be able to afford a set of AP brakes but like most people I can't so I did this conversion and im VERY happy with the performance and a cost almost a third of the price of AP's!
It took me alot of mucking around making templates and get them cut out 100% by the laser cutters but it was worth it!


First off I had R32 GTSt calipers/ VT 296x28mm discs.








I now have R32 GTR calipers / VT 330x32mm discs




Also nearly finished rears:



Here is a pic of Brembo's off an EVO 7 Lancer with 330x32 discs.

dude - can you get those adaptors cut up for the VT/R32 GTST combo again for cheap?

the VH struts and brake mounts are the same as VL ones right, so that stuff would bolt up to a VL as well i guess. that's excellent!

hey thanks for the pm man - i thought i'd ask this here so other people can get the answer too.

i know the discs are relatively cheap (depending on what brand, drilled, slotted etc) but what the hubs worth and where do you get em from?

Hubs are $230pr from Race Brakes Sydney ('LAZYASS' on the forum)

http://www.calaisturbo.com.au/showthread.php?t=82362

They can help out with DBA rotors too.

Standard, slotted, 4000 series club sport and 5000 series 2 piece race rotors.

do the VT/R32 GTST upgrade fit under a standard 15" steel rim?
Also do you have any info on the rears?

need to find something that fit the 15" rim because I'm running dirt tyres.

I've already got the VT setup with new rotors on there so I don't see much point going back to a smaller disc

Hi VHR32....
The bracket you have for the brembo brakes, would that also suit the brembo caliper from a VE redline? The reason I ask is the calipers and disks for a ve are selling for about $1000atm from a few differnt places

Do you use the VN GTS disk or something different ?

Cold VL - The VE Brembo use a 355mm diameter disk. If the hub was machined out to suit the earlier hubs the the disc may well fit

I didn't make a bracket for the brembos, sold them before I got around to it. I doubt it would have fitted the VE ones anyway- these calipers were Evo Lancer versions.

*******
Nissan caliper brackets on special $230 delivered, normally $280.
Limited stock.

I thought I would use this thread rather than starting a new one. Does anyone that is running the r32 gtst brake setup have any pics or specs of what wheels that they are running. 16 inch wheels fit around them but more interested in the clearance from the back of the wheel spokes to the face of the caliper.
Cheers
Ben
