for discs get a set of RDA drilled and slotted rotors
and for pads get a set of EBC Green Stuff

awesome street upgrade

also get a fresh flush of DOT4 brake fluid, or DOT5

Don't get drilled rotors. The holes are purely cosmetic,and they weaken the rotor. -That's from DBA themselves btw.

Pads,it's hard to go past Ferodo DS2500's.

Ideally,you would do a 4pot conversion. Callipers from an R33 GTS-T,R34 GTT or similar,change the discs to new slotted and redrilled items (two pieces from pro concept if the budget allows),fit an appropriate master cylinder,hoses and lines,bleed out and go. That setup is as big as you'd ever need,including for serious track work.

On a budget,your first step is to measure your current discs and see how much life they have left in them. If they're well within the useful range,just fit some good pads front and rear,and bleed the system out fully.

Lastly,it pays to search this forum.

I recently purchased an s15 5 stud conversion kit from advanced jap auto imports, $850 for 5 stud s15 brakes that will apparently bolt up to my s13's 4 studs front and rear, they should arrive later this week so il let you know exactly what the go is once i have them in my hands

My money is on redrilled rotors. The rest is bolt on replacement for an S13.
