    I'd look to see what has the cheapest good pads. No sense paying GTR tax for marginally bigger disks when GTST brake pads might be heaps cheaper?

      The iron calipers will be stiffer (ooo errr missus) and possibly give better pedal feel, but will suck at shedding heat.

        32 GTR are similar to 33 GTS-T but the disks are different thicknesses. AS less common the brakes rotors cost more.
        All Nissan non brembo 4 pots use the same pads Just rotors are different and legs/ clearance on the rotor to accomodate.

        Buying from GKtech will probably be more of a hassle, with half the stuff needing modifying or breaking or not being great to begin with, rather than a complete bolt on stuff because nissan were lazy (bar r34 needing to drill out knuckles)

          A lot of gktech stuff, yes but the calliper adaptors actually fit and work as advertised. Had a set on my r33, did over 20 track days braking from speeds in excess of 240 kph. No dramas with them at all, i didn't die, plus 324mm rotors can be had for as little as $150 brand new.

          As far as engineering, thats a different ball game.

              Cheapest and best imo is r33gtst. Bolts right on. Engineer wont bat an eyelid. R34 is larger but more $$ r33 GTSt fits under stock wheels also.

                  I did exactly this. I even removed my ABS and no one noticed anything different.
