That is just speculation. This is going to be Z1's time attack car. If it was Nissan's, they would hand it over after SEMA.

If it's a mix of street/track driving, not worth it.

Finally if this is being done purely for car resume purposes and for show conversation pieces, I feel the desired effect may be achieved, but the return on investment wouldn't be worth it to me. Good luck and if you are stuck on doing this, make sure to do it right the first time and don't try cutting corners.
/\. This. The only good reason to do this is for the “cool, unique” factor. If this for a performance upgrade, it makes no sense. The r35 brownbos aren’t the best calipers for hpde or road course racing anyway, caliper flex and melting seal issues and non castellated pistons etc, most gtr guys upgrade them to pro 5000r ap competition radical caliper bbk or something else equivalently better. The gtr calipers are still street brakes at the end of the day. For the z34, imo, the best track bbk out there is the stoptech trophy race bbk.

As for z1 apparently doing it, they’re doing it for the cool unique factor guaranteed since it’ll bring their shop attention and then hopefully $$$. Also, if it’s a shop car, they can expense the “investment”.

It very well may be easy and simple, but if its stupid expensive, that single part will deter people from attempting it as it could be money down the drain whereas BBKs like AP racing have been tested ample times on the Z platform.
You do understand there are many members here that have and will continue to drop large amounts of $$ to upgrade their Z right? Some members to which they could have completed the GTR brake conversion a few times. There are many members on here that won't even blink at a $1000+ price tag for a single part.

You claim to have access to cheap R35 parts. Congrats and good for you. With the money you are saving with access to such parts, go through with your conversion and keep us posted.

OP, since you have access to cheap R35 parts, why not just build your own from scratch?

What is the purpose of the swap?

From a performance standpoint, there are options that are better for the track (Brembo GT or GT-R, Stoptech). Essex Performance will build you whatever you need with Brembo parts and it bolt right up.

Before going there, though, you need to ask if you've actually exceeding the capacity of OEM brakes. If you're on street tires and bumming around the street you will never touch the limits. If you haven't maxed out the braking power of whatever tires you're on, you don't need new brakes anyways

For "cool" factor, i guess its fine to be able to say you have GTR brakes, but they do not bolt up. Omori Factory makes adapters, but good luck getting those. Z1 strongly implied that are working on a mass production adapter, so you should probably just ask them
