Does anyone know where to find some Dual Piston Brake Calipers? I've been searching all over to no avail.

I'm using Q45 dual piston calipers and rotors, but then again I've also converted to Nissan 240sx front struts, steering knuckles.

How difficult was the conversion?

If you are not a serious mechanic. It could be very expensive. I am doing it along with a lot of other mods just to have something to do. I would recommend the wildwood kit..

Here's the Wilwood kit I have on my car. Four piston calipers, 13" rotors, the kit includes all mounts, bolts, stainless lines, fittings, etc. Great kit, goes on easy. If you have bigger than stock wheels, they have a 14" rotor kit. Good people too. Makes the stock brakes feel like trash in comparison, tested well on mountain downhill runs.

I have two good Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 quad piston calipers. I'll let them go for 140 shipped. You'll need a custom bracket made but there is a post on this forum with pictures of the dimensions needed for the bracket. You could print it out and have a local machine shop make you one. Would be much cheaper than the Wilwood kit.

These look nice, and a bit cheaper than what I finally found later in the day I think yesterday. Thank you.

I didn't change mine, the braking power is much better now even with the stock M/C. Definitely curious about maybe swapping in a 3000GT M/C with a larger bore. Was doing some research but didn't settle on anything. Right now it's working great.

Good to know, good to know. If you do end up swapping it out with a 3000GT M/C let me know how that works and how the brake power is. I'm going to look into breaks more once the car is actually running again, but I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row ahead of time.

That's the way to do it, having a plan. Not like I would know! I waste 200% more time than I need to randomly bouncing around the car working on different things.

I don't waste my time, damn part companies do. :angry:  Haha. I had called way ahead and made sure a place had everything I needed. Called to order everything the other day and got a call this morning telling me they can't find several of the things I had already previously made sure they had to save time. It's okay though, I'm getting it all together haha.
