Title: Direct caliper/rotor upgrade?
Post by: NismoJames on 12:49:54 AM / 07-Sep-12
I've been searching for this, cant seem to find anything.  Is there a DIRECT oem upgrade to our calipers/rotors for our s12's?  Ive been going back and forth on my coil over set up and its come down to this.  If there is a direct bolt on oem upgrade ill do weld on coilover upgrade, if not, ima do the s13 upgrade.

510 guys say Z32 brakes bolt up to our SE strut tubes.
you still need all of the other hardware that 240 guys use.

if you have a base model or turbo, SE brakes are also completely bolt on and are a tad bigger. Getting a bigger mc and braided lines help a ton as well. I dont see the need for 4pot brakes and giant rotors on cars as light as ours.

I've heard that a good way to go is q45 front and z31 back but not sure what year from the q45 I'm still trying to figure it out. That's what I'm planning to do

M30 uprights work on our steering arm. Then you can do a weld-on coilover and use any brake setup that you could use on a 240SX.
