Question: Skyline R32 Brake Upgrade

Postby moving » November 27th, 2012, 1:41 pm

Im upgrading a p11m6 to r32 calipers with steel braided lines
Ive read a few brake upgrade post etc but i still have a few questions

1) When upgrading font and rear. Will the brake booster and master cylinder need to be upgraded?
or can the stock system work.

2) Where do i get the banjo bolts from ?

2) The rear calipers. can they bolt on to the existing stock rotors and would a bracket need to be made?

thanks

Trinidad Hose using back your old fittings or they putting on new ones on the hoses? Do you have an average of how much it costs? I'm about to upgrade my brakes as well & was planning to use Goodridge so that's why I'm asking.

i havent done the brake conversion yet as i am waiting for a master cylinder from wilwood to arrive.
and i havent done the measurements and what not for the lines as yet.
So cant tell u how much it cost as yet.

but ive estimated my entire conversion to cost around $4,000.00 in parts.
r32 4 piston calipers and new front rotors $1,500.00
r32 rear 2 piston calipers $700.00
New wilwood master cylinder $350.00
New Front and Rear Hawk Brake Pads $1,000.00
SS braided lines and machine shop work if needed $500.00 +

Moving,

i have the same R32 brake setup on the ground, just to install.
was told by someone that the rear R32 setup cant work on the p11....

i know the front rotors have to be re drilled to 4 hole and reduce the rotor size by 3mm etc...

let me know how the rear R32 set works on your p11...

oh my bro-in-law works at Trinidad Hose Limited...so i can find out the cost for you guys...

maybe a staff price.... :lol:

well the only problem with the rear calipers is how u are going to use the handbrake..

as far i know the p11 m6 version.. which has 4 wheel disk brakes.. which is the model i have.
the handbrake is built into the hub.
so it should be a straight swap of the calipers onto the rotor

Dave-ve which vehicle/ brake setup are those for? Did you have to provide those new fittings or did they supply? And how long did they take to make them, if you don't mind me asking?
