I took the car for a long test drive, and I can already feel the difference with the 4-piston rear calipers (vs. the 2-piston Akebono rear calipers). I'll properly bed in the brakes when all four brake positions are complete.
Finished the installation today. No real issues with the passenger side front except for tweaking the dust shield so that it doesn't touch the rotor, even in heavily-loaded turns.
Now I got a bunch of extra OEM & aftermarket brake hardware to market. My storage area is starting to look like an Infiniti Parts Dept stockroom:
- OEM Chrome Front Grille
- OEM Chrome Fog Light Accents
- Sport (Black) Fronts Grille
- OEM FR & RR Rotors (1-piece)
- Z1 Motorsorts FR & RR Rotors (2-piece)
- OEM FR Brake Pads
-.OEM FR & RR Brake Lines
- Stoptech SS Brake lines
- Infiniti Red Sport Akebono FR & RR Calipers
- OEM Air Cleaner Boxes/Intakes
- OEM Primary & Secondary Cats
- OEM Y-pipe, Intermediate Pipe, and Dual Exhaust/Muffler
- OEM Carpeted Mats
I'm sure I'm forgetting something... oh yeah, I just purchased the AMS LPFP, but won't install it until later this summer after I purchase the AMS HPFP, too, and then get an updated tune from Seb.
And yes, mods are fun! That's one for you, Bevo
Great work. I thought this kind of stuff was the whole point of having an enthusiast's forum like this? At least that's why I joined.
Another comment on thie specifics of the BBK.
It uses the Trophy versions of the ST-60 (FR) and ST-40 (RR) calipers, which are universal among all Stoptech kits. In addition, the 380 mm & 355 mm rotor rings are also universal. Therefore, you could create this BBK by additionally sourcing the caliper brackets and rotor hats from Stoptech.
The Stoptech P/N 84.489.000 is for the front kit, described on the box as "Custom Kit FR INF Q50 SEMA STR60 380x32".
The Stoptech P/N 84.489.001 is for the rear kit, described on the box as "Custom Kit RR, INF Q50 SEMA STR41 355x32".
