    S13 Brake upgrade

    Been having a look through the forum regarding brake upgrades for the S13 and cant seem to find much in the way of a list of compatible parts.

    Could someone either point me in the right direction, or let me know whats a good set up to chuck onto a 13 running around 350ish bhp!

    Thanks

    The most cost effective in my opinion is front 350z brembo and z32 rear sumitomo. Cheap discs cheap pads etc.
    I assume you've got the 5 lug conversion?

    If not you can just get discs redrilled to 4 stud I guess, which opens up all the normal S14/15 options such as 350z brembos as m17ch said, or R34 GTR brembos, think both require the existing mount holes to be bored out though 12->14mm from memory. R33 GTR brembos are bolt on, S14/15/Z32 4 pots are a reasonable upgrade too. If going for big calipers consider swapping master cylinder out for a skyline or Z32 one too.

    If you change to bigger calipers it definatly helps the pedal length & feel if you change your brake master cylinder too.
