        R33 GTST 296mm x 30mm or R34 GTT 310mm x 30mm if you can find a set cheap (will need to drill upright for 14mm bolts for gtt brakes).

                Can also just leave the s14 callipers and get dog bone adaptors from gktech and then run a 324mm x 30mm gtr rotor.

                  z32/r32 same as stock but alloy
                  r33 same caliper piston but larger spacing so bigger rotor (296?)
                  r34 same piston but lager spacing again (310), need to drill out knuckles to 14 mm from 12 mm. did this before up prices all over shop, i picked up a complete front set for $150 so worth it
                  32 GTR similar size to R33 GTS-t but weird thickness so rotors ect way more expensive
                  32 Vspec/ 33 GTR Brembo. What i went for mine, bolt on all round, need drum hubs on rear but can use non grt stuff so way more common ( what I went with for current car as bolt on) but price all over shop in alst year with GTR tax
                  Evo Brembos ... fronts not too hard with adapters, rears expensive to get working, skyline hubs, adapter brackets, z34 rotors ect
                  Infinity calipers , front only I think and way cheaper in America than here
                  CVs-t as above, cheap in America, no idea after conversion/ shipping
                  Seen one or 2 AMG 8 pot adapters floating around, front only I think

                    This might be the go. Anyone know if engineers have an issue with dog bones?

                      r34 Gtt & 310mm rotors all bolt on per the earlier suggestion. Trim the disc backing plate and you're away. no dogbones required.

                        Not if made out of the right material and no welding, plus the right tensile bolts used.

                          Thatís going to involve research and risk (ie getting sent the right bits and knowing that they arenít) as opposed to clicking on gteckís website

                            so maybe im over thinking it but s14 calipers are cast iron as opposed to the alloy units used on other nissans. I still maintain a bolt on factory option such as r32 GTR (296mm) or r34 GTT is better then dogbone & iron calipers on 324mm rotors.

                            if you're clicking a website get yourself some braided lines as well. Made a difference on mine.

                              No research required, just buy a caliper and disc from the same skyline and bolt it on. No aftermarket parts required. My old bus had 32r calipers and discs.

                              You will also need a bigger skyline master cylinder as the bigger calipers take more fluid to move. I think I had a 33r master and a bolt on stopper brace. Worked well.
