370z brake upgrade

There is a company that offers a conversion kit to fit the 370z brake system on the g35 and 350z. The stock brembos are a 1 caliper setup. the 370z is a 4 caliper up front and 3 out back setup with bigger rotors. My question is has anyone done this and have pictures. also what size rim do i need to fit this.

4/3 pistons? I doubt it, brake bias would be too much in the back for a stock car.

Maybe 4/2

rim sizes

sorry i ment pistons... at work so typing fast. iam pretty sure i read it was 4/3. ill find the magazine and repost after work. just wondering if i could get away with a nice set of 18inch racing rims or if i have to go 19.

also they compared it to the 300zx brake upgrade for the 240sx. after the swap they hotlaped it over and over and couldnt get the brakes to fade.

If your stocks are 1 piston, they aren't brembos

Found it

not a bad price either for a 14inch rotor setup.

Agreed. That price isn't bad at all for an entire set.

Search for "Akebono BBK" here on the forums. There are a lot of people who have done it, along with some posts on which rim fits over it.

^WHS.... well documented here.
They are the same as on the G37S.
There are several vendor threads in the vendor classifieds as well.

the same vendor sells them on this site:
Infiniti Akebono 14" Brake Kits for 03-07 Coupe, 03-06 Sedan >>

4/2 piston 14" rotor (rotors are pig heavy)

several of us have them:
