If you wanna go four pot, go with the Z32 front brakes. Pretty cheap and basically a direct bolt on.

The fronts are either 280mm x 26mm or 280mm x 26mm.

You would need front calipers, rotors, and Z32 brake lines. You also need to trim, or remove the dust shield. As for keep them 4-lug, you just have to drill out the rotors for the 4 lug set up. From what I have seen, they fit under most stock S13/S14 rims.

The upgraded MC would either be an auto S13 MC, if you have a stick, or the Z32 MC, again direct bolt ons. I hear you should change the brake booster to a bigger unit for easier pedal travel.

The other option is the J30 fronts brakes. They are a dual piston set up, as opposed to a 4 pot. The rotors are smaller than the Z32 set up, but still bigger the stock set up. And they are also a bolt on mod. Hope that helps. If not, refer to one of the stickeys above.

I have never seen the 300zx rotors bolted with factory wheels but as said above, the j30 rotors and calipers are a direct bolt on if you get the rotors redrilled to 4-lug.
Just check around first and find a shop that will do this. I have come across a lot of fab shops that refuse to redrill rotors.

Yeah, its actually pretty easy to get wrong. There are some rotor companies that will sell rotors with any bolt pattern. I used to get 4 bolt z32 rotors made from R1 rotors

Just make sure you get decent rotors that are Zinc coated, otherwise they will rust like crazy and look super lame.
