A31 on a budget
« Reply #30 on: January 08, 2012, 12:05:36 PM »
you mean like using a bracket to bring it closer to the hub centre? (i.e. going the opposite way than the usual big brake conversion bracket (something like this http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/toyota/brakes/auction-437016868.htm)
could be possible if there is no interference issue.
i don't know what you have but you could go r32 gts25 (single pot with bigger disc than gts) or r33 gts25 (2 pot), both should fit 15" wheels.

Yeah thats what i meant. I will have to get a few different calipers and just try it and see if it is possible to make up some brackets to suit.

Yeah just standard 4x114 rims. I think for what they cost they are pretty sweet rims atleast until i can afford something sweeter in 15x9

Awesome work, that's a tough looking cef!

5 stud big brakes only accomodate 16" wheels, no smaller diameter, i have been through all that, not sure about regular GTS-T brakes however. (non type-m)


No point in that upgrade sadly, I have a set of non-type m brakes here and they are the same as GTS / Cefiro brakes except with a 5 stud disc.

You could look into U13 4WD SR20DET Bluebird front brakes as they run a twin pot calliper & the disc is bigger than standard A31 but a little smaller than the 4 pot discs, they have the same 100mm bolt spacing on the calllier as the A31, the discs are 4x114.3 and they ran a 15" rim from factory. With some uprated pads & maybe sloted discs that could be the go.
Im getting there slowly at the moment

If the motor you put in you car (transplant) has a cat from factory then you must have a cat of the same standard fitted to the car you put your new motor in
