Since you dont have a forum dedicated to brakes, i figured this would be the closet thing to it. Mods, if you feel different, please move this to the appropriate forum.

I posted a thread on Freshalloy regarding this matter. PLease follow this link for pictures and a brief discription of what is entailed. If any of you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

Thank you, and thank you Esems

Hey, we can talk about a group buy all we want here, right?

A brake upgrade is a must if your thinking about going FI.

Same questions apply: front only or four wheel kit? What pads do you use?

10-4, mustgo..........


this is an enthusiasts forum, privately owned and operated, built to do things just as such! :D

now, while we're at it, are we talkin new lines (SS) master cylinder (brembo makes the best pumps, imo).......

plenty to discuss, INCLUDING purchase......

i gotta sleeep for now though......

Thats the beauty of our kits. Everything you need is included. That means stainless lines as well. Unlike Brembo, you dont need proportioning valves with our set up s because we maintain OEM pedal height and bias by using proper piston diameters :) we do the math for you ;)

Keep in mind, this is only talk as of now. I am working on this kit for a few people and only opened this up to generate interest. Building this is all up to you. And of course, if the answer is GO, we will do a rear upgrade as well :)

Our systems look great but thats only a minor detail. Our main goal is performance. Form follows function.

Spread the word and I ll throw you guys a GB that will have everybody cheering ;)

hey sherwin....


in review of the FA post, im unclear of the 6 piston setup you are offering... the calipers pictured look like four piston (very much) to me, and, do not appear to be radial mounted.....

heres my current radial moun calipers i am using on my 'other' conveyance.....

Here is a detailed description of the exact caliper. The pictures that you see on the BMW and the 350Z both have a 6 piston on the front. The BMW has a 4 piston the rear. The 4piston rear caliper is exactly the same as the front 6 piston externally except internally it has smaller piston diameters to retain the all important balance we have been speaking of. Trust me BTW, it IS radial mounted ;)

"This specially configured Superlite SL6R narrow body caliper features an increased bridge radius to allow proper pad alignment and bridge clearance for use with 13.00" to 14.00" diameter rotors. A special body design is used with 16 mm pads to provide the narrowest possible profile for tight clearance applications. Radial mounting simplifies adaptation and provides two planes of adjustment for accurate alignment over the disc. These calipers integrate "Big Brake" style with Wilwood's latest technology to generate big stopping power over a broad range of custom, high performance, and off road vehicle applications. The SL6R is well matched to the fluid output capabilities of many OE master cylinders and serves as the base caliper for Wilwood's 14.00" rotor front "Big Brake" conversion kits.
A key to the superior performance of the SL6R comes from the extremely durable and efficient body design. It is the product of computer generated solid modeling and FEA stress analysis technology. A reinforced radial transition from the piston bore housings to the closed end bridges has produced the strongest Superlite caliper bodies ever built. Additional strength and resistance to deflection comes from the four high-strength steel end bridge bolts. A fifth center bridge bolt provides even more overall strength and easy access to the pads without the need to remove the caliper from the mount.

SL6 calipers are assembled with one-piece stainless steel pistons and high temperature, square faced bore seals. Stainless pistons are used for their slow heat transfer properties and high resistance to corrosion. Slow heat transfer reduces the potential for heat related pedal fade and increases the service life of the fluid and seals. The high temperature square faced bore seals have the largest possible sealing area and provide controlled piston retraction on release. The differential bore six-piston configuration distributes the clamping load over the length of the pad to promote even wear in the highest temperature environments. This is especially beneficial to vehicles that often realize high temperatures during hard braking.

In addition, each SL6R is equipped with SRS bridge plates. SRS plates eliminiate all bridge wear caused by pad gauging and extend the service life of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the harmonic vibrations that contribute to pad squeal. Two piece bleed screws and dampened fluid tubes are recess mounted to shield them from track debris and other potential damage sources. A full range of PolyMatrix pad compounds is available to match the brake response and heat range of any competition or sports driving application."

Just for kicks, this was an S2000 I did earlier this year using the same caliper but a smaller 13" rotor. The wheels are 18" SSR GT3's.
