Nice job man, what rims do you plan on running? I assume with the bigger brakes they won't be close to clearing the stockers.

The stockers: The discs dont even fit inside the diameter of the wheels, nevermind the caliper lol

I'm going to push this off as far as possible to make sure I am happy with what I decide,

But its strongly leaning to either XXR 513 16" or Rota RBR 17" unless I can find something else that will work with the brakes and fit with the car in a good price range. Why I am hesitating with the XXR is the tire choice.....and the hesitation of the RBR is that I find 17" a bit big (but 17" has a mass load of tire choice). I dont need them right now because the car is in storage, so I'm letting it brew until I decide for sure which ones I want.

I am open to suggestions if there are any to be suggested. Bear in mind, price is an issue.

The brakes are a little pricey.

calculate at least:

Front rotor (each) 150$ total 300$
Front calipers Z32 (each) 120$ total 240$
Machining for centering ring, re-drilling and hat shaving (x4): 300$
Rx7 front calipers to use in the rear (each) : 80$ total 160$
Rear rotors z32: 150$ each total 300$
Stainless steel brake lines: 150$

grand total for brake swap: ~1450$

But the end result is something freaking insane. Bear in mind I am not done this swap yet I only have the front portion ready but I still need to get the rear organized to even out the brake bias and get new wheels to fit the immense rotors in the front.

Update: Shocks on order. Kyb agx MR2 mod. Steering wheel hub adapter for mk3 didn't realize so horn doesn't work. Will sell it if someone is interested. Installed once (by me before I realized it wasn't the correct one) but not used (pm please)
