I'm looking at upgrading my Z32 front brakes to this custom Wilwood kit (http://nissanroadracing.com/showthread.php?t=5469) that seems to be popular with the road racing community. The wear items like pads and rotors are relatively inexpensive. It also seems to reduce a ton of unsprung weight and is supposedly perfectly balanced with z32 rear brakes. I was considering a CTS-V setup, but this seems like a better option.

Feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I run them and love them. Braking has improved although I can't take full advantage of this kit because of the stupid amount of front camber I run they do the job extremely well and you lose a lot of weight.

What are you running for rotors and pads? How long have you been using the kit?

Wilwood kit is great.
Like you said, they offer a wide array of race pad compounds and they are cheap.
by the time you start piecing together Brembo kits, you're not too far off from a complete Wilwood kit, not to mention you won't need the Z32 BMC.
Brake bias is great.
I have the Evo 8 Brembo with Z32 rears. Setup works great, but the unsprung weight difference between these and Wilwoods are huge....and did I mention the pads are way cheaper.
I use CL Brakes RC5+ and I go through couple sets per year $235 vs $95 wilwood...

Yeah, that was where I looked first. Looking for some outside that site. Thanks.

P.S. - I have no idea what the harness comment is about... :)
