I ended up running a 2007 Nissan Maxima rotor with the Fastbrakes bracket. The 350z rotors were not going to fit, but they could fit if you took the bracket to a machine shop and had them remove like 2mm off from the mounting holes. The 350z rotor was scraping on the caliper.
This is what the Maxima rotor measured out to. Right around to 317mm.


My other issue was the caliper bolts are super damn close to my(summer) wheels, but they clear barely. I bought 3mm spacers but decided not to run them.

Tons of clearance on my winter wheel setup.

Great write up, anyone doing this with stock rims? if so what spacer are you using. Don't like spacers and think I would grab some TL rims in the long run as they might be OK without them.

For stock TSX wheels, you'd need 25mm spacers to clear the brakes. 04-08 TL wheels will clear without spacers.

Well my brakes are finally shot. I'm upgrading to the fatfourcustoms bracket. I was NEVER able to mitigate the brake noise. I'm going to be upgrading to the 350z rotors as well.
The RL doesn't offer a lot of pad choices, but I'm going to try StopTech pads this time around.

Just an update to this thread, I went with the FFCustom brackets back in 2019 and I’m still getting brake noise when you apply the brakes ever so gentle. It’s been so long I’m not entirely sure what rotor I’m running either the 12.6” or 12.8”.
So yes I’m getting the same brake noise with the Fastbrake bracket along with the FFCustom bracket.

Im guessing it’s probably do to the pad over hang not making contact with the rotor.
Debating on buying a sleuth of rotors until I find the one that fits.
