    Default Brembo vs Z32 calipers







    Just figure I would post pictures of both calipers. U can see the difference in size and everything. I thought it was good information, hopefully someone can find this useful too.

    Thank you for posting this. I have been trying to decide between the two and I think I've made up my mind.

    Not really, just need to redrill some rotors and an adapter. Just need to get around and actually get them to test fit.

    compare weight of both combos and piston/pad, sizing, that's where the real (functional) difference should be

    IMO, z32 upgrade is better (if you have aluminum (90-91) calipers)

    Price wise z32 is cheaper. Brembo is a lot of money to maintain

    Wasn't bracket needed for the z32 calipers? I can't remember if it were direct bolt-up.

    Bolt-ons and BC 8's

    The calipers directly bolt on, the stock b15 rotor needs to be shaved down 1/4" or get a 90-91 infiniti m30 rotors which is already down to the size required and just bolt on. Sammy did it. Check out his thread about it.

    Not really. The caliper and the dics are cheaper than a 1.8 sentra OEM kit. The pads are expensive if you go with the OEM, but a set of Hawks are affordable.

    A full kit with stainless brake lines go for less than 1000$. That a good price for a 12'' rotor kit.

    If you go Z32, you need to shaved the rotor and you have smaller diameter disc than OEM. You just save on weight and go have 4 pistons calipers...
