Hi Guys,

I'm looking into a 97 rvr hsg Brembo conversion for all 4 corners. What I've read is that the fronts can swap out hubs / control arms. Rears I'm not so sure.

Links or advice appreciated.

Alternatively, any other brake upgrade option also considered..

I've done it to mine. For the fronts all I did was get the caliber bracket from racefab $200, elongate 2 bolt holes and trim the rotor dust shields to allow for the bigger rotors. As for the rears, I just cut the dust shields. Doesn't take long to do.

Rears bolt straight up to hsg, no bracket needed. Might be some differences with the rvr ssg, but I can't confirm that.

Would you have the link at all to the brackets you bought ? Only ones ive found suit evo 1-3 and they're $350.

I got the Evo 1-3 adapters from racefab back in 2014. Was $200nz. If they are now $350 just for the fronts, that's ridiculous, even $200 is too much. But luckily that's $200nz, so only about $1.50 in real money.

Never mind they where $200nz for some reason i cant ready properly haha $350 is for rears for evo 1-3.

As for rears. Direct bolt up as in using the brembo brake lines aswell? The factory booster doesn't have a issue with the increased size ?

Bearing in mind I did this 3 years ago, I'm a little sketchy on the details.
But yes you can use the brake lines. Factory booster works, but apparently an Evo 7 booster & master is better, just have to plug up a pipe off it from memory. I have a booster, but still haven't done the swap yet so I can give exact details on that part.

As for elongating the front bolt holes. The bolts that racefab supply to bolt the brackets to the hubs are a 16mm and the factory ones are 14mm (that's probably not right) so you have to drill out & tap the hub bolt holes to accommodate the racefab bolts.

But with both front & rears, you will to trim the dust shield to allow for the bigger rotors.

They are! 276mm, but without the banjo fitting in favour of a straight bolt up style.

If you want to get a 324mm rotor setup, hit me up, I am running a R34 GTR V-Spec rotor up front with a dogbone fitting a std R34 calliper. Happy to photo/measure/describe vie interpretive dance, the details if you want the specs.

 is there any difference between the HSG and the SSG? would the adapters fit on an SSG with the usual modifications (bolt holes and dust shields)?
