Nissan 240SX - Performance

Aftermarket Parts

Brakes

The level of braking power you need depends on how much engine power you have. Still, even if you have a completely stock engine, the stock single-piston 240SX brakes are too weak for any hard use. A popular option is to install Nissan 300ZX brakes on the 240SX. These brakes are good for mild performance applications. A better option is to use an aftermarket brake kit on the front and salvaged 300ZX rear brakes or a full front/rear aftermarket brake kit. Iíve listed some good brake kits below.

Product Pistons Diameter (mm) x Thickness (mm) Notes Price
Rotora Front Brake Kit 6 355 x 32 Requires 18" wheels or larger $2,800
Brembo GT Big Brake Kit 4 332 x 32 Requires 17" wheels or larger* $3,000
StopTech Front Big Brake Upgrade 4 332 x 32 Requires 17" or larger wheels; works with 4 or 5-lug setup $2,000

* Brembo makes a kit designed specifically for the S14 240SX (1995-98), but they do not have one for the S13 (1989-94). However, their 300ZX kit will fit on the S13.
