The rears off of the g35/Z/evo/STi are all the same caliper as well. The front calipers off of the Z/G35/JDM ITR/ Spec V are 'f40 spec' brembo's.
So you're saying the evo and sti front brembo calipers have the same exact piston sizing as well? And the same for the rear?

Are the calipers/rotors sitting correctly? It looks like there is a bit of overhang on the caliper, meaning that the rotor might not be big enough based on those pics.

I always thought that the G35/350z brembos are based off the Lotus Calipers. The F40 calipers have external brake piping on the lower edge.

Man this thread needs some clearing up to weed out what is false and what is real. Like a stickey or something about the 350Z/G vs evo vs STI brakes vs what ever elses cars come with brembos(like the Cobra, Sentra and SVT Focus.)

This is true for the PADS that are used (actually front Evo pads are a tad thicker than the STi ones, but most people use them interchangeably), the calipers are still different internally (pistons) as well as how they mount.

No weeding is necessary - Stoptech already correctly identified the issues. If you want Brembo's on your car, you have to find someone with a track model or with a G35 coupe that is selling them, or get them new from the dealer. That's the only way to get a proper set of the brakes onto your Z.

The piston sizes between front and rear on the Z are totally different than they are on any other car you can readily get the brakes from. Once again, scan down to Stoptech's posts and you'll see the answers.

Look what I found on EBAY-brand new F40 calipers loaded with pads going cheap $300 right now, or buy it now at $650 it looks like a steal

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ME:B:BCB:MT:11

I just made a new topic about this..

On a separate note if you really want the OEM ones I have a front set of 350z gold Brembo's with new seals and new rotors (cross drilled/slotted and gold zinc plated, check with me later on today and I should have a price for those.)

The STI front brakes has bolt holes close to the edge of the calipers ... 350z brembos have the mounting holes closer together. I have never made a brake bracket, but IMO the thing about the S13 is that the stock brakes will allow an easier made spacer that the 350z. I think the stoptech bracket looks like it would be pretty close,

Those are Sentra SE-R brembos, rather than the 350z ones. These calipers will look similar, but if you really look close, you can tell the difference.

spacers are closer on the Z/G35's Brembos...if youre gonna shell out the money to buy Brembos you might as well nab the OEM that way theres no "will this fit my car/why do my brakes feel funny" less headache...then again Endless, Stop Tech and Rotora makes some great brakes too
