    Question Z33 Rear Brembos

    Sup guys, long time lurker, first time poster. Good to see a forum still so active!

    I've installed some Z33 Front Brembos on my R33 (same as S14), looking at how to mount the rear properly..

    I've had the mounting holes welded and drilled/tapped on the rear and they fit, but to get the car back on the road apparently that's not allowed

    I came across this ancient post: https://www.sxoc.com/vbb/showthread....er-for-s14-s15

    Anyone know if these adapters are readily available? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best off the shelf option might be a 350Z dual caliper bracket from somewhere like GKTech

    Call them and ask, but they look like they should.

    I think i'd get it tested by someone else personally mate. Smooth out any welds and give it a lick of paint so it's hidden and who's to know?

    I only know of this guy, but that means I'll have to ditch the oem 350z discs i already have...

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350Z-370Z...AAAOSw6u1ZeE2S

    Someone needs to make an adapter for the oem 350z rear discs, those would sell like hot potatoes

    Don’t r33 brembos bolt straight on? Surely swapping to those would be the easiest solution?

    They do, but they cost about a grand due to GTR tax. The 350Z ones can be found for half that

    You might be onto a winner! I can live with having to get new discs. Apparently GKTech have something in the works, just not quite there yet.

    They're very strict on modifications here in NZ, to get my car back on the road, I have to certify the car which involves an engineer going over the car with a fine tooth-comb. They have a history with boy racers doing dumb shit to their cars, making it a pain for the rest of us who want to do things properly.

    Thanks for your help guys, that ebay link could be a goer.

    Z33 Rear Brembos

    Nissan have mucked around with the mountings on their brakes. R34 / Z33 Bremboís will not fit the Z34 (they use Akebono) but not sure if they would be an upgrade anyways. R35 Bremboís are even harder to fit
