there seems to be a ton of questions about this upgrade so if we can centralize all the info in one post and get it stickied it'd save alot of time.

in the thread we can also link to the article on the main page. this isn't the thread i wa planning on sticking. consider this the research page.

places to buy GSX rotors;

www.raceconcepts.net $120-150

www.tirerack.com
-EBC fronts slotted only. $186 for the pair.
-Powerslot slotted only $92each front $98each rear

if anyone else has a kit they were drooling over post it in here.

Yeah, not that I don't wanna help people personally, but I think I typed the same thing about 5 times this week alone.

www.cskauto.com - Checker Auto parts, reman. loaded GSX calipers are $60 plus core charge.

www.roadraceengineering.com - Steal braided brake lines for 85 bucks. AWD works on fwd too.

RRE's got the awd AEM crossdrilled/slotted 12.5" two piece rotors with red,silver, or blue aluminum hats for $350 too

they'll sell you gsx calipers if you can't find 'em anywhere but it's kinda on the steep side ($300+/pair)

got everything for my conversion from them. great service

for cars without ABS, you can switch out the break booster and master cylinder from an ABS car for better breaking.

don't forget the mother of all billet brakes, The wilwood billet superlite 6 from TCE performance products. They have kits for our cars in 11, 12, 13 inch disks; 4 pot, 6 pot, forged, or dustbooted wilwood calipers and now they have a 2 piston wilwood rear brake kit with a 12 inch disk.

you can get rotors at www.rsversion.com also they're pretty cheap like 70 bux for a pair.

I dont know if this applies to the DPC's that hades used, but i used 1st gen single piston calipers on my car (long story) and they do not use a banjo fitting, they have the same kind of fitting as the DPC's that hades used. All I had to do was cut a couple of threads off of the banjo bolt and they thread right on and work great. No new brake lines needed.

who has the best deals for the 2 piston calipers and brackets? i e-mailed M+S Recycling out of Rancho Cordova. Their price was $200 for calipers and rotors, no core charge.

If you don't want to search junkyards and buy parts separately, you can buy the 2G AWD Big Brake Kits from RRE or DSS. They come with the 2G AWD calipers, PowerSlot rotors, Axxis pads, and SS lines. Just keeping searching the parts traders for people selling their calipers.
