Note that what he's saying in the bolded part is that he needs to machine the calipers to make them fit an LGT rotor. This means anyone who has z32 calipers already is not going to be able to use them without finding someone to machine them for rotor clearance.

Take a look at the pictures he posted. They support his conclusion.

This is why you don't have the calipers "ready to go"

No machining calipers.

Dremel at most.

I see no reason why it wouldn't fit the newer 5x100 uprights with bolt in bearings. The oem calipers and brackets are exactly the same. Should go on the BRZ just fine too.

Will these things fit under a 16" RS 6-spoke?

Its just the little bits from the casting that may get in the way. It will vary from caliper to caliper. Some may have excess some may not!

looking forward to the finished product!

Standard washers have greater manufacturing tolerances. They aren't meant to be used as a precision spacer. To achieve the desired affect with a spacer, KNS would have to manufacture additional spacers to have the desired tolerances.

This is a cleaner more precise solution. And no spacers to lose or misplace. It's more expensive, yes, but it's also a better product.

How much cheaper would it make them? $10? The piece is going on the CNC anyway. You're talking about the difference in price of and extra like 1/8-1/4 inch on the stock thickness vs. finding, buying and shipping washers the right size.

I really don't see a ton of cost savings in using washers, and the one piece design has less complexity, no tolerance stacking and will flex less. Worth any small cost increase vs. washers.

I haven't Been on this thread but I stumbled upon it. I also have a set of 30m m calipers left that I was going to use on my sentra (sold the sentra in December) so now I got these calipers sitting and wouldn't mind upgrading my wrx stopping capabilities lol.
Put me down as well if the price is right
