Hey guys and girls,

My name is Chris and I'm from Western Australia. I drive an N15 Pulsar which I've had for almost six years. I've been slowly modding her up whilst studying Civil Engineering at university here in Perth. Now entering my fifth and final year, I am hoping to get into the more performance and handling modifications including a transplant of an SR20DE/VE or SR16VE at some stage.

Which is why I'm here...

Enough talk, here is my car:

Brake Upgrade

My car needs some better stopping power, so I picked up a pair of AD22VF front calipers and went about stripping them, taking out the piston, cleaning and rebuilding them with new seals and brand new Bendix pads.

When I got them


During stripdown


I painted them cast aluminium to keep them clean looking.

Rebuilt


I'm currently ordering slotted rotors to suit.

My car has rear drums, but my other Pulsar has rear discs. I'm going to rebuild the calipers and install them when I install the fronts.

I've already collected standard discs, and brand new genuine pads to suit.



I hope to get around to installing them sometime in the next couple of months, depending on work and uni commitments.

Thanks for looking
Chris

Nice looking car. It's a shame our B14 Sentras didn't look like that.
Awesome car! I am so jealous!
Thanks guys. I'm jealous of your SR20's...

It'd be cool if the N15 was available in a two door version as well... We have the 3, 4 and 5... :tongue:

Thanks for the comments boys.

Awesome car dude! :biggthump I love the color (blue is my favorite) Great choice in the braking Department going with the AD22VF calipers! Believe me- you will feel the increased braking performance for sure! With some good Brake Fluid like Motuls DOT4 fluid, youll stop on a dime! Keep up the great work- and when you can, more pics please! :biggthump

Thanks mate. I really appreciate the comments.

I've been planning the AD22VF upgrade for a while now, and a set of calipers came up cheap locally so I snapped them up... I haven't chosen fluid yet, so I might give Motul a try. ;)

Thanks again man. I'm hoping to get some pics of the car this weekend after a good clean and detail... :biggthump

Oh, and I love the blue as well... haha :rolleyes:

Cheers mate. Yeah, the N15 is quite similar to the B14... It shares the same platform and some body panels, but it is still pretty unique...

Have you had any luck with the C11 or J30 brakes? The Maxima brakes would be twin piston yeah?

Im lovin it man!!! Good luck with the swap!! Might as well 5 speed converted too!!
Thanks champ.

The 5 speed swap is definitely on the cards, but won't go ahead until I swap for an SR20 or SR16VE...

Thanks for the comments guys. :)
