Hi Guys,

I have been researching a lot recently trying to find out if
it is possible to replace stock 1-piston caliper with bolt-on 4/6 piston caliper
(for stock rotor) instead of upgrading to BBK.

According to stoptech's research, it seems too much for a street use car
to get BBK.

So, it seems make sense to me to upgrade caliper to add more force
for braking.

But, I found nothing for 350z.

Any idea.

Thanks.

I've been very happy with mine...and StopTech makes a 13" kit for the Z if you don't want/need the 14" version.

Yes, it's not free. Nothing that works well is. What's the saying......You get what you pay for........Yah, that's it! :rolf2:

A better caliper on the OEM POS rotor won't help much.

It seems to me that most of the expense is in the caliper, brackets, etc. .. anyway so you may as well wait until your first brake service or until you rotors wear out and then do the BBK upgrade. In the mean time you can be saving up for it ...... :cheers:

I once saw a guy with this on his license plate:

"The driver has no money, because he is married"

Guess I should get the same one on my Z.

There is talk that the calipers from the gtr r32 (I think) will fit the zed???

I read it somewhere in the Australian section of this site... Maybe post something there or search it and see what comes up..

Also I am with you, I am married too and think it would be cheaper to get a maid when I get rid of my current wife.!!!!

IMO i would just get a kit, maybe the 13" front and rear stoptech (there is a smaller version rear brake) and call it a day. or just upgrade the pads, rotors, and brakelines and call it a day.
