Nissan 240SX Performance Modification/Brake Upgrades

Nissan 240SX Performance Modification/Brake Upgrades

Entrance choices for S-chassis

S13 USDM (’89-’94) rotors are 252x20mm (non ABS) or 257x22mm (with ABS)

S13 Silvia/180SX (CA18DET) rotors are smaller than S13 Silvia/180SX (SR20DET) brakes. Perhaps they’re the scale of S13 USDM brakes?

S13 Silvia/180SX (SR20DET) rotors are 280x22mm

Altima rotors are 280x22mm

Z32 rotors are 280x 26mm or 30mm

rear choices for S-chassis

S13 – 10″ non-vented rotor, smaller single piston caliper, integral handbrake

S14/S15 – 10″ non-vented rotor, bigger single piston caliper, integral handbrake

A31 Cefiro – 10.5″ non-vented rotor, smaller single piston caliper, drum handbrake

J30/Q45 – 11″ vented rotor, giant single piston caliper, drum handbrake

Z32/R32 – 11.75″ vented rotor, 2-piston caliper, drum handbrake

The manufacturing facility brake system could be optimized through the use of an excellent model of sport/racing pads, top quality rotors and recent top quality brake fluid. This stuff will help in getting essentially the most out of the {hardware} supplied by the producer, and are usually the perfect bang for the buck improve. That is thought-about enough for a lot of house owners and might lock some very sticky tires simply whereas retaining essentially the most linear modularity.

Late mannequin 5-lug S14s(’97-’98) have barely bigger rotors and use a significantly bigger pad than different fashions.

The house owners of S14’s (’95-’98), can improve their brakes utilizing 1995 Nissan Maxima calipers, rotors and pads, and for these with Four bolt use 1995 Nissan Altima rotors with a 3mm spacer between the caliper and the spindle.

For the house owners of S13s (’89-’94) You may improve your inventory entrance brakes to JDM 180SX spec utilizing USDM components. This upgrades predominant profit is the extra mass to the rotor for warmth dissipation. The caliper pistons usually are not so giant as to impression braking bias greater than a trivial quantity. The next will likely be wanted for this swap:

inventory non abs s13 brakes VS 180sx model brakes

(’93-’97) 1st era Nissan altima rotors. These are 280x22mm and have a 4×114 bolt sample.

(’89-’99) third and 4th era Nissan Maxima brake calipers

(’89-’99) third and 4th era Nissan Maxima brake caliper mounting brackets

(’89-’99) third and 4th era Nissan Maxima brake caliper mounting bracket {hardware} package

(’89-’99) third and 4th era Nissan Maxima brake pads

These components all instantly bolt onto the s13 with no main modifications wanted. This swap retains close to inventory

inventory non abs s13 brakes VS 180sx model brakes

Earlier than and after photos of swap executed on ’90 240sx with out abs:

Issues price noting:

-The brake swap is not going to match something smaller than a 15″ alloy wheel. This is not going to clear a stamped metal wheel and drags on the caliper paralell floor.

– The inventory rotor mud protect not clears the bigger brake rotor. Modifications or elimination to this are essential for fitment. 2″ deep slices with shears spaced 1.5″ aside must be enough to permit the surface edge to be bent flat.

-The pad hangs over the sting from this setup by roughly 5mm. Though it’s visually putting, it doesn’t negatively impression braking efficiency or trigger any reliability points.

      • YOU CAN USE 2000-2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R 11 inch rotors as an alternative of altima rotors and there’s no hole, they work good and are the identical dimension as 180sx rotors precisely. -Boyce

The sentra SE-R Rotors are the very same factor. There are 2 totally different half numbers. One is the very same rotor because the U13U. The opposite is a unique half quantity however the one distinction is that the hat is painted black…THATS IT – Somebody who truly is aware of what they’re speaking about

Boyce is appropriate:

Tried the 2001 SE-R rotors, they’re similar dimension as my previous 180sx rotors and I’ve no hole on mine, mates automobile with altima rotors has hole. (verified by chad)

300ZX Brake Four piston Calipers and Rotors are an obtainable swap for the inventory 240SX braking system. They require the next components:

(‘xx-‘xx) 300zx calipers or different appropriate replacements

(‘xx-‘xx) Skyline calipers

(‘xx-‘xx) Jdm s14 silvia calipers

(‘xx-‘xx) Rotors

(‘xx-‘xx) Pads

(‘xx-‘xx) R32 ebrake cable (optionally available if rear brakes are swapped to retain optimum brake bias and ebrake performance)

(‘xx-‘xx) Grasp cylinder (optionally available if rear brakes are swapped to retain optimum brake bias)

Q45 Brake Improve:

Hello guys, that is AmatsuDorifuto of Boards right here to present some enter of what’s wanted for the Infiniti Q45 brake improve for the 240sx.

Step 1: Purchases =
A) 90 – 96 Q45 entrance brake calipers
B) 90 – 96 Q45 entrance brake pads
C) 90 – 96 Q45 entrance brake rotors

Step 2: Elimination of previous gear =
A) Loosen the lug nuts on the entrance two wheels
B) Jack up the entrance of the automobile and help on jack stands
C) Take away each wheels
D) Take away calipers by eradicating the 2 14mm bolts
E) Take away caliper brackets by eradicating two 19mm bolts
F) Your pads, rotors, and another stuff will come off now.

Step 3: Set up of latest gear =
Fairly easy, it is the other of elimination.

Get pleasure from your new brakes! They are going to carry out a lot better than inventory.

A number of aftermarket braking system upgrades can be found and on the market for the nissan 240SX corresponding to AP Racing, Wilwood, Undertaking MU, and so on.
