Let us know what your goals are in upgrading and we will be glad to help you. What would you like to get out of upgrading your brakes?

ive had some pretty hp set ups in the past. my nx2k brake set up always worked good. granted my car is about 2300 pounds so a few hundred pounds lighter then most peoples b13s.

currently it is. new altima brake booster, altima master cyclinder, stanless braided lines all around, factory nx2k calipers, autozone pads and rotors. i just recieved new stop tech front pads, ceramic rear pads and am going to go get new blanks for all around. gonna install those parts and flush out and bleed the systems fluid. stopped great before, should stop even better now.

well my primary goal is to have more stopping power and handling, ive already upgraded my engine to sr20ve changed cams and ecu all that good stuff, but when it come to braking the stock brakes just don't stop fast enough. now that im planning on going turbo i know that im defetnly gonna have to upgrade the brakes if i dont want to stop with the car in front of me lol.

The brake setup Stratton describes, centered around the NX2000 front caliper and rotor setup is the go-to solution for those who aren't going crazy with power or who can't afford one of the BABKs.
When you say you need more stopping power, that sort of worries me. What do you mean the stock brakes don't stop fast enough? Shortening the distance it takes to stop the car is really a function of tire choice. If you want to stop sooner, you need to upgrade those front tires, not the brakes.

now my ? is where can i purchase the nx2k calipers and will they bolt on to my steering knuckle

yeah you can get everything you need from a parts store. youll just need the mounting bracket, wich is a oem piece they sell that too.
