s13 Brembo 4 piston CTS-V upgrade for $760

I installed Cadillac CTS-V 4 pot Brembo brakes on my S13. Made a detailed tutorial video of it. It's not too hard the price is definitely right!

Well done, sir.
I might go with this swap in the future considering the price. They look promising.

Very nice video! I recently had bolted on the 350z caliper bracket to use 300zx front calipers with the 350z track 12.75" rotors and I don't like the overhang of the pads at all so I am definitely going to go with this setup.

That's a great price for the brakes. Considering all the BBK kits from the JDM companies are $2500+

Yeah it's a pretty inexpensive setup. Takes a while to do it right since you don't want to mess it up.

Glad you found it useful. Brembo rear brakes would be too much brake for the car. As far as I know there is no bracket for it yet, although I understand CTSV Brake Swap is working one according the website.

I'm going to do the Z32 rear brake swap as soon as I find some free time.

Cool man, CTSV swap is the best for the money by far. I'm a self proclaimed brake whore so I'm going to do the CTSV 6 Brembo piston swap when I get the appropriate rims. There's nothing better than big juicy Brembos

The 6 piston setup might have too much clamping force. It's a pretty light car. With just the 4 piston on the front and OEM on the rear, the brake bias is pretty off (as I expected).
