I was thinking of doing the same thing with my big brake setup. But before you dig too much deeper into DIYing, consider the value of paying the $109 (they're on sale right now) for a tried and true, r&d product. It is a bit risky gabbing up brackets that hold on crucial components like brakes.

That design is for the DSM, using 1g 3000gt VR4 calipers and rotors for a mustang cobra, but I don't recall the year. There really is alot in the R&D of the brackets. The ones on tuners nation are made for the Galant, with 1g 3kGT Calipers and 2g 3kGT rotors IIRC. If you're going to make your own, go all out. Pick the rotor and caliper you want and gets to measuring, but I doubt someones going to give you the formula to their profitable idea. Just my humble opinion of course.

With that in mind, if tuners says that their rotors are 12.36" what size are stock vr4 rotors?

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but I'll ask anyway.

Can the non turbo 3000 GT front brakes fit with the stock wheels? Where is a link to the brackets?

That's cool that they are a direct bolt on, but is the outside of the brakes any larger, or is it just the pistons. Looks like the wheels barely clear the stock brakes. Can anyone verify that they actually work with stock wheels?

I think I need some new brakes after this winter anyway. I hope I can get a slight upgrade.
