Default Big Brakes

Well i've been searching the internet for the perfect brake kit for the max. The problems I run into is that its a good price but i have to have some fabrication done (hard to find where to get that done) like the z32 brackets. Or I run into the its way too expensive for me problem, but it just so happens i ran into an akebono brake kit. I just wanted everybodies advice on if its a good deal or not. i also wanted to make sure it would be a direct bolt on since it is made for the 350z. heres the link.

Akebono Nissan 350Z Front & Rear 14 Inch Big Brake Kit w/ Stoptech Rotors - Nissan performance parts

IMO, that akebono deal is a great dealand definitely the Way to go.

Considering what you are gettin for your moneys worth. I mean 14 inch rotor..that's sick..., oem engineered caliper/pad design that makes contact with more then half the rotor...unlike the wilwoods....not on my Max.

Look around any German engineered car as its known that these cars have one of the best brakes in a high number production type setting and see which one Of these brakes only use half the surface of the rotor. They don't.

It comes down to this. If you are really on a tight budget, do wilwoods and you will improve your brakes and look sweet. if you want the best performance/per dollar 4 piston setup for the Max go Akebono.
Just my 2 cents.

He can get the akebono set up from a g37 or 370z for half the price of the link he posted plus its a direct bolt on with the bolt from said cars. theres a thread on it

Just my 2 cents.
I have driven with both (and also 300ZX TT BBK) and I honestly like the Wilwood's better. The Akebono's provide a tab bit tighter braking due to the thicker and bigger rotor. But I wouldn't say that its extravagant compared to the Wilwood's. I didn't feel much difference honestly. The Wilwood's are also much lighter than the Akebono's. It's like 11lbs vs 4.9lbs which is a selling point for me.

Many 370z owners actually upgrade to other BBK's which is why you see many of them for sale on the Z forums. The Akebeno's do look great. Can't go wrong with either/or. I just like keeping my 12.6" rotors.

How do the 4piston Wilwoods fit on the 12.6" rotor? Is the rotor big enough to accomodate the larger pad? or does it sit uneven?

It comes with an adapter bracket. Many people paint the calipers in the center so that they don't rust. The Z32 BBK is the same way. They sit like this:

Thanks for the feedback Eddy. When you mentioned the weights are these just the calipers? Or is it complete with mounting hardware and rotors?
Thanks again.

Wow Eddy. I seriously wasn't aware of the dramatic weight difference. Thanks. I can see why you chose Wilwood, but the Akebonos llook soooo tight....IMO.

I vote Akebonos Raz. Its a 14 inch rotor...thats big..
I would already bite the bulet on that but my girl will not be happy with me if we dont take the long awaited trip to Costa Rica together and I end up with a big brake package instead... It will have to wait till the next winter for me. But Akebonos it will be....
