quick search of that acdelco part number on amazon showed prices couple bucks more than rockauto. and about 300 for springs/pins and pads. and yes looks like some EVO/STI/etc pads... i may never get to work on my Nova if i keep buying shit like this for the Galant lol...

Biggest rotor you can fit behind a 17" rim is a 13" rotor.

- Evo X rotors are 14" requires 18" rim to clear.
- Evo 5-9 Rotors are 12.5" but cannot be use with CTSV calipers
- CTSV calipers bolt to the DSM knuckle but need 13" Cobra rotors to work. (Fit under 17" rims) Also you machine the mounting tabs on the CTSV caliper to correct the offset to be able to fit cobra rotors.

Quoting jeverts:

14" EVO rotor with the 17in Evo 8 enkei wheels. It will fit, the calipers are identical to the evo brembos.




I believe one or both of the pistons is 2mm smaller. like 44/42 vs 42/40 or something like that. FWIW my 13" cobra rotors with 3KGT calipers fit my 17's with room to spare.

EDIT: Actually not that much room to spare. I don't see fitting a 14" rotor in there. Maybe a 13.250-13.375"



ALL DSM's are advanced and ALL Evo's retarded

Thanks for the help guys. Looks like I will get the cobra rotors. I really don't want to go with a 18" wheel on my galant. It's to big of a wheel IMO on these cars.

In all honesty even the 13" rotor is probably overkill. I built a car for another member and used the 2G 3KGT rotors with matching calipers and the thing stopped like woah. To try to maintain balance I used bitey pads on the back and normal ceramics on front and it still locked up the fronts first.

Depends on what you're doing with it. On a road course, a ~3200 lb car will want every square inch of that 13" rotor to use as a heat sink.

Yup! What kind of shenanigans were you up to at SM? Hoping they can get my car into the shop soon. I'll have to stop by your place once it gets going before I make the trip back up north.

Interesting caliper choice. I thought you were going with 3KGT brakes at one point.

I was meeting with Jon the engineer that rents out some of that shop. I was thinking of 3kgt but I figured I would spend a couple more bucks and get some really nice brake setup on the car.

any update on the caliper brackets?? i only ask because i made a mistake when i ordered my rotors for the 5 lug conversion and i ended up getting the single piston caliper rotors not the dual, now i need to buy more parts. if im buying more parts i might as well just upgrade them now.

I am going to try to get to it this weekend. I am going to be installing the clutch and try to get the fuel lines in. I still have 4 lug hubs on the car. It might be awhile just because I would like to have the hub installed and wheels on so I can make sure everything is going to clear and I can faro arm the mounting locations.

That is it's parking spot. I am just glad they are not making me park it outside. When did you come in? I have been here all day. LOL these cars run. I'm about 75% there. If I would quit coming up with shit to machine for it I would probably have it done by now. Just need to make time to work on it.

This is my next project Fuel and brake line mounts

I was there around 4:30 dropping off my head. Convinced jared to take me back to the shop to see if you where there. She looks good. And yes, mine ran for a little bit.

hey, have you gotten around to ordering the calipers yet and does this hold any water? im thinking about ordering them soon.

Haven't posted progress in a while. Got the turbo in manifold ported started on the fuel lines. Probably going to be ordering a TB this week and then I can finish up the pipeing.

The price is not going to reflect what it would actually cost considering I got the materials at cost and Andrew owed me work so the labor was free.
