Definitely interested in FC brake upgrade, I joined the forum for it!

Jake, I'm in central FL too if you need a guinea pig.

Keep me posted, thanks!

Guys i think someone type wrong information earlier.

As far as I know the sport package(what I have) has the same size brakes at the all other NB's. It was the LS package with the 16" wheels that had the larger rotor.

Correct me if I am wrong.

The 01+ "big" brakes are often referred to as sport brakes

I always thought the sports were hard to find and pretty pricey. Where did you pick them up at?

I gave $150 for used rotors and pretty thick oem pads with calipers for the front. I already picked up a set of hps and blue's for the street and track, and I'm running 1.8l standard rears with hp+ on the street and track with the wilwood in-car bias adjuster. I was overheating the hp+ in the rear on my 1.6 at 94whp, hopefully the larger 1.8 rear will get the job done so I have 4 less pads to swap for the track.

I haven't put any heat in these yet to know how it works considering I'm still on the stock 1.6.

they're really hard to come by. Most of the time you can only get the front sport because people switch to wilwoods, so don't get your hopes up.

^ If I cannot find the rear sport brakes,my last option will be to order the Goodwin racing billet caliper brackets.

a bet a little dryer ducting with hp+ would get the job done on standard 1.8 rears.

Nothing fun :(
Using a CMM on the hub and then hammering out the final dimensions. Day-jobs getting in the way.
