    Hey. I reacon if you used the calipers from a Gts with the 320mm rotors it would ge just a simple. You would need 17" rims though.
    Injected 5.0L FORD power in HILUX is the only way forward!

    Hi. You need to be carfull when choosing from the nissan calipers.

    There are GTst, GTR, GTST, R32, R33, R34. and so on.

    The main two things are, 1 rebate to allow the rotor and the lenhgt of the mounting tabs. I belive the largest ones will fit a 310mm rotor.

    If you plan this conversion I would say the 298mm rotor is fine. I run a 289 Windsor and C4 and have no dramas with stopping...

    Some pic below showing the differances..


    Show differance for the rotors..

    R34 GTT calipers have longer mounts.


    R32 caliper. fits BA 298mm rotor.

    Hope this helps..

    yeah no probs, i was aware of the difference in calipers. just wanted to know the biggest disc i could fit. so 310mm it is. hmm i wonder what calipers hopperstoppers use for their 330mm kits?? maybe xr6t/xr8??
    planned power ouput will be 400+rwkw so i dont really want to do things twice.

    All the kits I looked at used BA rotors and 2 pot AU11 calipers.

    Hoppers Stoppers and Sydney Race Brakes. oh eBay sellers as well..
    The starting price was around $1200.00.
    I did mine for $695.00 all new except calipers.

    I have around 350Hp at the tread. Plus the extra wieght!.

    yeah i think i will go with the 300mm and r33 gtst calipers. i dont see the au11 calipers being as good as the gtst's. and i think the 300mm and gtst's will prob out perform the 330mm + au11 package at around half the cost.

    that is actually an r33 gtst caliper in the pic, unlike the ones fitted to your vehicle which are r32 gtr. you may need to keep an eye on your pads as you are using a 28mm disc where a 32mm disc should be and once the pads wear down they can cause the rotor to kick.

    not sure if i can take the credit but we first did it 3 years ago and nobody had info on it back then (pete fixed that though)


    millsi, you should be able to use 330mm rotors if you turn them down to 324mm but you would need to check hat heights and anulus of the pads to be sure, then throw an r33 gtr brembo on there.

    Hi Linden.

    I didn`t claim any credit. If you go back to my post the first thing I said was. I would like to thank the people who first did all the hard work getting this upgrade together. Half way down the page.

    http://toymods.net/forums/showthread.php?t=30366

    As for the pic and text I got that from Peters post. He described the calipers. You may want to go back and check his posts.

    http://www.toymods.net/forums/showthread.php?t=24826

    My aim as to put some extra info out there so others may get a idea they can work on and even improve if they want then they can share there outcome with others as well.

    The only thing I will take credit for is making the conversion much easier and tidy. The use of the billet hubs. With my version no extra bits are needed like spacer`s and alike. This will make any engineer happy as it all fits up as intended by the manufacture`s.

    Thanks Richard..

    ok explain what 'anulus' are?
    r33 gtr brembos sound good if i could get some for the right price. does the r33 gtr take a bigger diameter and wider disc than the gtst? or are the calipers the only difference?
    cheers

    ive noticed it in pete's posts and informed him but he didn't correct them.

    millsi' the r33 gtr uses a 324x30mm disc so a falcon 330mm may possibly be used but id need to check all dimensions first.

    pad anulus is the swept area of the pad on the disc

    cheers
