Anyone got any pictures of this setup.
Fronts are a direct bolt on.. You only need to modify the dust shield to accomodate the larger caliper... Rears are not.

I already have a set from my 1994 Supra TT but i have not installed them yet.. Waiting for my factory discs/pads to need replacing first.

Best of luck

I'm about to do this too. I got some front calipers from a 1998 TTSupra and will purchase new EBC rotors, pads and SS lines. I will keep the OEM calipers for the rear and also upgrade the rotors, pads and lines.

I figured the TT brakes would look bigger on an SC430? They seemed huge on the first generation SC's.

Do I have to upgrade the rotors to do this conversion? I picked up a set of calipers all after I recently replaced my pads and rotors.

Yes.

I am assembling parts to do the upgrade. Front brake flex lines, can I get the stock lines, or do I need a longer line to allow for the larger diameter rotors thus caliper is further out or not?

Finally got all my parts together for this except for the flex lines. Anyone know if I should stay stock, or find longer lines?

I got my supra TT brakes on 2 weeks ago, running stock lines! They are fine! And the braking power is GREAT!

Ok, got my calipers all cleaned up and powercoated, Look great. Went to install everything this weekend, and my new stoptech rotors seem to have too much of a offset to them. Anyone have pictures of the install that would show me how much offset I should have.

Mine have about 2" of offset.

I bought rotors to fit the TT supra. If anyone has part number to what works, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Hey,

I haven't taken pics with the wheel off but here is a few to help.. if you have about 45mm to 50 mm space from back of wheel spoke to edge of mounting face of the wheel you will be perfectly fine!

as for stoptech rotors this is what i got:
Front Left: 120.44103
Front Right: 120.44104

If the space between the spoke (back side of rim) and brake caliper is 1mm or less, or rubbing, consider a spacer on the rotor 3-5mm. This is also taking into consideration your tire will not rub on the fender wall.
