Doesn't sound like a great price to me, check out this thread:

u can get them even under $100 depending on what you get. Supercheap auto even stocks DBA pads and things these days. They're the same pad as you need for aussie S14 (200sx) onwards so just match the part numbers for them in the store if they go "uerrr, whats an R33"

yes i would buy them at that........although there may be some people here that disagree with me on the following statement----->I wouldnt personally use ANY australian made mechanical parts on my car.....go for the genuine parts at that price

Maybe i am anal but i believe that the japanese built a fantastic car...you should back a fantastic japanese car with fantastic japanese parts!Not to mention the japanese aftermarket brakes like endless ect...i have these fitted to my car and have seen other products not work as good or wear out fade ect on friends cars.....Just my thoughts!

Why not??

When I had the stock pads in my car, I had to REALLY stomp on the brakes to bring it to a very quick stop...... Then when I got the Racebrakes pads in (which are made in melbourne) I could lock the front wheels up at 160km/h......

That comment is a little naive, sure in general, the japs make better stuff, but that doesn't mean EVERYTHING made here is crap....

Take it on a case by case basis. We should (and most are) utilise these forums, and ask others of experiences they have had with various products, whether they came from japan, or from some mob across town!

So in response to your questions krzysiu, I dun think it is worth it for the standard pads. Even Bendix Ultimates feel much better than the standard pads, and they are rated to work at higher temps too. I got mine for $100 from autobarn on Nepean hwy, (brighton or moorabin)

As for the rotors, I'm pretty sure dba had a slotted replacement for the R33 at a cheaper price than what you got quoted. I wouldn't get the cross drilled, and they are more prone to cracking at higher temps. Porsche and other manufacturers that have cross drilled brakes as standard/option on their cars actually forge them with holes, making them structurally stronger. Drilling them is apparenly no good.

http://www.dba.com.au/rotors_slotted.asp is the link to the slotted discs. As predator said, supercheap stock them, so get a price from them first and let us know...

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
