Thanks for the photos and info mate, very helpful!

I've got the 280-324mm adapters on the way to trial the stock calipers first. main reason being i cant seem to find any f40 calipers for sale when searching that term. 

i will keep my eye out though for any that pop up.

That's because they are dead old and there have been a billion other Brembo calipers turn up on cars since.

understandable, but the only other brembo options ive seen used recently are SRT8 or evo calipers with 350mm rotors.

350mm will definitely be too big, unsure whether you can use evo calipers with smaller rotors on a skyline, on my evo 7 i had 320mm rotors that were 32mm thick.

Can happily say that the gk tech 280-324mm adapters with stock calipers fit behind my wheels! Going to order the HFM 2 piece rotors tonight some new pads and brake fluid. Hopefully have it all here by the weekend so I can refit everything!

Done a little bit of googling trying to figure out what vehicles the f40 caliper came on and it’s saying ford fpv vehicles. So am I looking for calipers off a falcon? (I’m a Pom so I know absolutely nothing about fords or holdens...so please excuse my ignorance)

Good result but you could have tried ringing around the wrecking yards on the Gold Coast first...

And the finished product, thanks to @Dose Pipe Sutututu for supplying the Intima SR pads and motul brake fluid. Really happy with the upgrade. Fill the wheels nicely! Also have the calipers a splash of colour whilst they were off.

Thanks again for the support :)

I'm still surprised the BBS wheels cleared, no need to upgrade!

All good mate! More than enough for street duties now. Feels heaps better! Just need a proper alignment and new front tyres and I think I’ll finally be happy with how it drives!

I have the same wheels and was looking to do the same upgrade, but I see your centers are mounted on the backside of the barrels (not standard), do you think the calipers would still clear if the barrel was mounted on the other side?

My main concern was clearing the nuts on the back of the wheels, I think you’ll be okay mate, I’ll try get a photo from the back for you tomorrow

There’s a few mm between the spokes and the front face, which doesn’t matter if the faces are reverse mounted. The outside edge has maybe 5-10mm so you’ll be alright
