Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono Big Brake Kits

Z1 Motorsports Akebono Sport Brake Upgrade Package for all '03+ 350z / '02+ G35 models (Coupe & Sedan)

Z1 is now offering a complete brake upgrade package for all G35 & 350Z owners looking for an economical, complete big brake kit, in comparison to the much more expensive aftermarket kits already available. Produced by Akebono Japan by request from Nissan Motors for the '09+ Nissan 370Z and the '08+ G37, the quality and durability of these calipers and hardware are undeniable.
The beauty of the Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono brake kit, as opposed to much more expensive aftermarket brake kits, lies in the fact that it uses OEM Nissan/Infiniti parts. This means there will not be the added headache associated with extended wait periods on expensive replacement parts. Almost all of the parts found in the Z1 Motorsports Akebono Kits can be purchased from any local area Nissan or Infiniti Dealer any where in the country!


Paired with the Z1 Stainless Steel Brake Lines, your Z will have one of the ultimate brake upgrades on the market. The rear 14" Akebono Kit also works with the OEM parking brake with no modifications required.
The Standard kit includes:

  • Akebono (Infiniti) Calipers (Optional Calipers Available)
  • OEM Nissan Caliper Hardware Kit (Includes springs, shims, pins and clips)
  • 14" 370Z Sport Brake Rotors (Your choice of either Slotted, Cross Drilled or OEM Brake Rotors)
  • Centric Posi-Quiet Brake Pads (Other Options Available)
  • Z1 Motorsports Custom Installation Kit (For a TRUE bolt-on installation)
  • Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono Big Brake Master Installation Instructions
Z1 Custom Car Note:
For 350z & G35 owners who are planning on eventually Powder Coating their Brake Calipers, the standard price includes the Infiniti G37 Sport Calipers. Also produced by Akebono, these are a cheaper alternative to the NISSAN branded calipers which are available for an additional cost.
Installation note:
You must either trim or remove the dust shields behind the brake rotor in order to allow for the proper clearance of the larger 14" brake rotors and calipers.
The 14" Akebono Big Brake Kit requires 18" or larger wheels for correct fitment.








The picture below includes the Z1 2 Piece Akebono Front Rotor upgrade.


PM for forum pricing!


14" Akebono Big Brake kit (350Z/G35 Front & Rear) $1,598



14" Akebono Big Brake Kit (350Z/G35 Front) $898


14" Akebono Big Brake Kit (350Z/G35 Rear) $748

Add the Z1 2 piece rotor option. Features directional vanes, heat treated, zinc coated, SAE graded hardware, and a total of 20lbs in weight loss from the stock akebono rotors.

What is the difference between this BBK and the OEM brembo kit?
Are the prices posted shipped or not?
