i used 350z rotors 330 mm IIRC.

i think they were the brembo ones 2006 350z.

they fit my second gen.

and the space between the bolts on the caliper mount are 5" center to center ON both gens so in theory the caliper fits.

thats all I know. also it wont work with stock wheel.

tls waffle might fit with caliper.

i did an RL kit then sold it.

When you say RL Kit does that mean you used parts from a RL along with the 350z rotors ?

Okay thanks for the information :tu2:

RL calipers and 350z with brembo rotors.
also on other forum TL guys had bad experience with fastbrakes bracket.
I bought one from another company. FFL or something like that.

had to do a little bending of the backing plate.. didnt want to cut, this way I just bent it back when i took them off.

even the brake line goes right into the caliper.


i paid 230 something like that for slotted rotors.
250 for calipers
then I bought ACURA seal kit and rebuilt them. about 100.
powder coating first that was 220.
new brake pads were about 65.
and the brackets were 150.


a little over a G. i got the color I want. and my caliper is OEM/

Nice and we are going to work it out so I can try and put them on before I buy them and if they work then great and if not then he will just sell them to someone else.

Just a update I installed the wilwood bbk off of a 1st gen onto my 2nd gen with out any issues. They bolted right up and I am running them now. So from what I have seen bbk kits for the first gen will work on the 2nd gen but on the front only. I was told the rear brakes due to the parking brake are different and will not work ? Check out my build thread for the pictures.

Hi Obert. So just to clarify there's no washers/spacers or anything additional required? Gen 1 and Gen 2 front brakes are 100% bolt-on with no installation variation?

What about the BBK brake lines?

I just had to bend the dust shield a little bit away from the rotor but nothing crazy.

Yeah the brackets and brake lines and everything that came with the kit worked just fine. The rear brakes are a different story. They are different between the two gens. This all worked out with the kit I bought. Not sure who your buying from or what your buying so I would check with the seller. I got my info from Marcus at heeltoe :)
