Are these the right pads for the wilwood calipers?

Yes, those are exactly what you will need. Along with Corrado rotors that can be picked up at your local auto parts store.

Components have taken longer than expected to machine and arrive, but kits will be shipping this week.

Can you post comparison pictures between the stock 1.8 pad and the Wilwood compatible pad? I'm still trying to convince myself going from the 949 BBK to this is worth it.

I went to NAPA earlier today and scored Corrado rotors for $22 each, lol.

nope. You can call the Napa in Denton, TX and get the part # though.

That picture will show you nothing, what would you be looking for?
Our data proves that these brakes last much longer than the M-Tuned big rotor kit. With the big rotor kit and stock caliper, pads would last a day of track use and still have pad life left, but not enough for a full second day. With this BBK, we are getting 4 days out of the same pad compound (Carbotech XP12).

We usually get them between $20 and $25 each from various local stores. Part numbers should be as follows:
NAPA: NB 4886122
Kragen/OReilly: 141564

Are you making these for the NB as well? I have a 2001 with sport brakes and looking for an option like this.

It's different everywhere. Our local NAPA has absolutely no clue what I'm talking about when I ask for a Corrado G60 rotor, whereas the Kragen will honor their $21 online price in the store.

dgmorr, I have no reason to believe these WON'T fit an NB, but I listed the kit for 90-97 since that's what we've personally attached it to. I'm 99% sure it would fit your NB - having said that, if you buy a kit and it doesn't fit, I'll gladly give you a full refund and pay to have it shipped back.

Got mine, thanks.

Just to double check, the brackets and calipers are left-right interchangeable, correct?

And, what are the centering rings for? (stock wheels?) They don't seem to be in my box.
EDIT: I found them and they do look like they're for mounting wheels lol.

Yes, you can use them on either side. We will have installation instructions on our website shortly and can let you know when they are up, but it's not too difficult to figure out.

Have you guys thought about making a bracket to adapt T2 rear calipers to front 1.8 rotors? It would retain the parking brake yet have a much larger piston then stock to help keep up with the front end.

Like this setup- it'd be a cheaper more common place rotor, pad, and caliper then you typically see and it looks simple to do.

I'm pretty sure that going to NAPA for rotors and googling the pad number can't get much simpler.

Yes, but we have held off from doing it thus far because it's simply not necessary. The rear brakes work well as they are, as long as you have a proportioning valve to adjust bias. It would be cheaper than other rear big brake kits, but again, it's easier and cheaper to just use your stock components because they work well.
