I'm poor, and my brakes are shot...

I am looking to buy a second hand set of uprated brakes as I simply don't trust mine anymore, what I'm wondering is how difficult it is fitting a set of uprated brakes to an R32 GTR for someone with an 'ok' level of mechanical knowledge?

Are there any issues I am going to encounter that would be different say from uprating a set of Fiesta RS turbo brakes to Escort Cosworth brakes (as these are what I have done in the past?)

Only really asking as if I can afford to get a second hand set of uprated brakes for my BNR32 then I doubt I will be able to pay for someone to fit them at the moment, as besides, on a nice sunny day it would be a fun afternoon of car play time - obviously I am also acutely aware that I am fu*king with the one main item that actually stops my car, hence the post :)

So when I say 'Is it difficult' I don't mean to get responses such as 'if your nor sure, don't do it' as I do half at lease half a brain, and I’m sure it can't be 'that' difficult, and besides, I want to learn more other than always paying a mechanic to do it. :D

Cheers guys

Get yourself some Brembo's from a 34 GTR.

If you're looking to fit them yourself, someone posted up a guide on how to do this - and it had loads of photo's of each stage.

Yes I remember reading that guide by Yunis I think it was - really good - just wasn't sure how much applied to fitting a kit specifically designed for the R32.

(plus the 34's are quite rare from what I can gather, but if they are good brakes vs something like an AP kit for the 32 then I will keep my eye out)

Thanks for the info Daz
