Default 240sx wilwood brake kit

hey guys, yesterday i got a big brake kit from a budy. its a wilwood kit. unfortunately its one he pulled from his 240. he didnt want to go through the hastle of having to clean it up and have the rotors resurfaced to sell so, i ended up with it. for free. ive been searching all morning and cannot find a thread or any info as to if i can fit these on the miata. i might just fail at search. id like to rock these or is it a better idea to just clean them up n sell? thanks

What calipers are they? They will be the only usable part of the kit for you. You will still need rotors, mounting brackets, and lines

not sure. 4 piston i believe if thats what you meant. in that case i may just get rid off them. as i recently (1k mikes ago) got new rotors, pads, calipers from the 1.8 n slapped them on.

Your cheapest option is TSE's discontinued Corrado rotor brackets. It uses $30 rotors, should cost somewhere around $100-150 from a member, and you'll need $20 locator rings and $80 brake lines from TSE. So thats:
$60 rotors
$125 brackets
$100 from TSE for rings/lines

$285 for a BBK is a great deal, finding the brackets is going to be the hard part, make a WTB thread. TSE might not make the locator rings any more either. You could also do their current 11.75" kit for $550, but you'll still need the $80 lines.

That'd probably be overkill if you don't see track time and if you don't have wheels to fit them. They're very picky about what 15" wheels they fit under.
