BTW, polished calipers FTW...It works out nicely because everything else under the hood is polished as well.

Polished = Gay.....Reflective Chrome Powdercoat is the way to go

Polished looks nice when it's first polished, but over time it looks like **** if you don't keep them looking nice. Jeff polished the calipers and sprayed them with high temp clear before I bought the car. The clear is starting to peel off right now, but they still look ok. Eventually I'll re-polish them and have them powder coated clear...or maybe I'll just have them powder coated reflective chrome like you said. Although, I wouldn't say that polished aluminum looks gay by any means, it's just a PITA.

Ugh. I DID them because no one here at the time had them. I just wanted to see how long it would take. So got pics of yours?

Polishing brakes is no more "gay" than getting them powdercoated. Plus my clearcoat job lasted years. Not to bad for a 1st effort that cost $0

Finally....Q45/Cobra pics....







They sure don't look all that big in pics, but they sure as hell stop well now that they're broken in! My car also looks un-lowered in some pics...

TTZ calipers with stock rears suck. I've always had beef about its brake bias. In the few months of having em on my car- like 6-8 months, I froze my rear calipers up and I pretty much had no brakes in the rear. On top of that I hated the added rotational mass the 04+ Maxima rotors had.

I'm back to stock cheap blank NAPA made in China 20 bux a piece rotors with Hawk pads, new rear calipers and my car stops better than those TTZ calipers ever did on my car but since this is a BBK thread here is some pics...

Is it possible to put the 350Z Gold Brembo Calipers on a 2002-2003 Maxima. I think that would be a sweet upgrade.

Yes it possible.. you can also use the sti calipers and the evo rotors.. worked for a 240sx without brackets.. should work for a maxima....

but not really efficient, since you can use the 300zx calipers.. a lot cheaper then getting those brembos.

Interesting! But if bolts on a 240sx, it won't just bolt onto a maxima w/o the usual milling of the rotor.

Not when all it cost me is an $10 can of powder and a couple hours in my garage......i would never pay to have it done....I havent done mine yet because i wasnt about to disassmle brand new calipers...however when i get a deal on some aluminum calipers used (mine are cast iron ) i will cause i will want to rebuild anyway....

you complain about the brake bias, but then say that your rear calipers were frozen (it happens, probably unrelated to the TTZ calipers).

Then you replace the rear calipers and go back to stock....perhaps you should have replaced the rear calipers firts...

Did you ever run aggressive pads in the rear and go to a lower friction front pad? you'd be amazed what swapping pad compounds will do for yout brake bias.

Here's mine: 13" Cobra rotors, 2 Piston Infiniti Q45 Calipers, TechnaFit SS lines, Hawk HPS Pads, Motul RBF600 fluid. 17" Motegi DP6 wheels. First off they setup is outstanding. 2nd I don't like the rims to begin with (came with the car when I bought it). 3rd if you have these rims and are looking for a BBK, no way will a Z32 caliper fit, the Q45's had to be "milled" down with a dremel to clear the inner barrell.

But as for the brake setup, nothing compares. The old brembo replacements doesn't hold a candle.

Irish, is it my eyes, or is the hat thinner on the 2-piece?

Can I ask how much?

Irish, I believe your rotor vanes are directionally curved. If so, the rotors are installed on the incorrect side, you'll need to swap them. The vanes need to point backwards towards the rear of the car.

If they are straight vaned (pointing vertically outwards) like stock, then it doesn't matter.

wierd.....that doesn't seem to make sense

if they're poinnted the other way, they won't be bringing air in....

I need to do some more research.....

I really don't want to do this AGAIN .....

that's what i was thinking, but maybe if they are curved the other way they allow how air to flow out better?
