I really need some help measurements on my potential brake conversion.

Own 180sx, will be upgrading to R33 GTR brembo brakes.

If anyone (or if you know anyone) who has already done this conversion please PM or give me a ring on 0411 327 263.

Kind of need this info urgently because I am ordering some parts so any help is greatly appreciated!

Front and rear,or just front?

Front only,you'll need an appropriate master cylinder,the callipers,and discs. Fitting is not overly difficult,the hardest bit is drilling out the knuckles to suit the larger diameter bolts.
If you've gone 5 stud with S14 or S15 knuckles already,then this bit won't be necessary IIRC.
You'll also want the hard brake lines and the flexible hoses from an S14/S15,or get some made up to suit going from the banjo bolt fittings to the flared nuts.
Many have just re-used the bajos after filing them down some,but I don't recommend this. So before they pipe in here: yeah,yeah,it works fine,sure. YOU may be willing to stake your life on modified brake components,but I won't,and won't suggest to anyone el;e that they should too.

for the rear,you'll need to have fitted an R32's handbrake assembly and hubs before the discs and callipers.

For fluid,I usually recommend Motul RBF600.
