He's been using the Stagea 260Rs BMC. It has probably the best brake bias for a Nissan BMC. Given the weight distribution of the Wagon if gives a more balanced Rear feel. He said something really interesting when asked about Brembos GTR race brake setups(monoblock) vs using say a lotus or porsche brembo setup.
" I'll trade marginal performance gain for pad choice any day. Any time I see race brakes on a street car I can only think of short rebuild cycles. I want to drive the thing, not spend all my time working on it."

And this is the part list:
Z32 calipers: (duh!)
I highly recommend to get the ones from the 1990 N/A 300zx, as they fit better in our little cars, and they wonâ€™t need a massively thick rotor.
U13 Altima (or G20) brake rotors:
They have the same diameter as the Z32 rotor (280mm), its a little bit thinner though (22mm vs the 26mm of the N/A Z)
(for those who want 4x114.3 all around use g20 rear hubs it bolts into your rear b13 spindle and this is a fact not speculation. Now you can have a P11 like me yaaaa! I think it should also work on the B14 as they share the same spindle-spline pattern.)
U13 Altima master cylinder:
It will be helpful, considering you have in one single wheel, the same amount of pistons you had in the whole car before lol
And this is the heart of the project, nothing makes sense, and nothing will fit on your car, unless you have this:
B15 Sentra Steering knuckle and hubs:
Yes, this means your front wheels will be now 114x4. But the Z32 caliper and Altima rotors will fit, right in. No adapter plates, no custom job. But most of the aftermaket wheels have 100x4 and 114x4, as my enkeis.
This depends on the wheels you are using, due to spoke design of my wheels, I had to run spacers now.
Unfortunately, is not that easy, while bolting everything in, we found that due to the B15 knuckle, the rotor needs to be reduced in diameter 4 milimeters, or otherwise it will hit the caliper. So you have to take the rotors to a machine shop before bolting everything in.
I think is a good bang for the buck conversion, considering the ridiculous price out there for 4 piston brake kits. I will post some pics of the final results right now.
