Product enquiry

When upgrading your S13/180sx rear brakes to Nissan 2 pot calipers/drum setup you will find the handbrake cables do not exactly line up to the S13/180sx chassis and handbrake lever.

The GKTECH cable conversion plate is made from laser cut 8mm thick steel and allows you to easily adapt R33 (2 door) cables to your S13/180sx chassis and handbrake lever.

We allow these lines to be located via the OEM handbrake pin which is cast into the cable bracket and also has incorporated an M8 thread in the plate to hold the cables down rather than the M6 thread used from OEM. This means you don’t have to waste time around with loose nuts on the top and fidgeting around with spanners and different tools.

While you are doing this conversion it would be worth upgrading the brake lines also. You can choose from either just the rear lines if you have the front sorted or a full kit.

Our full brake line kit is specifically made for an S13/180sx that is doing this conversion and using these brakes.

The Gktech brake lines have passed independent testing and are marked as complying to FMVSS106 standards, this means they continue to be ADR approved and are DOT compliant.

We also offer R33 OEM handbrake cables to suit the 5 stud drum conversion, which can be selected above.

FAQs

Will this fit my car?
We can only confirm fitment for the vehicles listed above under "vehicle compatibility". If your car is not listed there, then we don't know if it will fit.

Do you make these to suit other cars?
We only sell the parts listed on our website. If it's not listed on our website, then we don't sell it. Sorry.

What's the advantage of using the GKTech drum handbrake cable conversion plate?
Most conversion plates are made in a backyard using a thin sheet of metal, ours is from 8mm thick steel and has been engineered to locate the OEM handbrake cables to the chassis. This ensures there is absolutely no flex when the handbrake cables are in operation.

What modifications are required, is this hard to fit?
No modifications are required, simply just bolt the plate up your chassis, then your cables to the plate.

Is there anything else needed for installation?
No, all accessories are included with the product and will arrive as shown in the product photo.

Can I install this myself? If so how long will installation take?
Yes, this can be easily installed and should take around 20mins.

Cant my original lines bolt up?
No, they do not. When doing a brake conversion that requires drum brakes you will find the cables do not match up to your S13/180sx OEM lever and front cable. This means you need our conversion plate that enables you to keep your OEM lever and front cable while running the respective handbrake cables too.

Why use an M8 hole to locate the cables instead of the M6 provided by factory?
We noticed the OEM handbrake cable has the allowance for a larger bolt to be used to secure the cable, why not use something that is already there to make a better/stronger product!

Is 8mm too thick and will this cause any issues?
There are no clearance issues and considering people are constantly pulling the handbrake whilst drifting we felt the need to overcompensate an important connecting part.

What if I have Z32 rear brakes fitted, which cable do I use?
This listing is for the use of an R33 cable which can bolt up to your Z32 rear brakes and the adapter plate also in this listing. You do not need to purchase the Z32 cable in our other listing, that is only for a direct OEM replacement.

Great product

When installed my drives haft hit the cables because of my raised subframe luckily they designed it so the cables can run up top and make enough clearance great product would recommend to everyone

S13 to Z32 brake upgrade

Pretty straight forward. Everything had gone smooth so far. My passenger rear brake hardline was seized but it's out now. I only have to install the driver rear drum and rotor. I'm unaware if I need different brake master cylinder lines as I also have the 300ZX brake booster😁

You might run into issues.

I believe the kit actually comes with 2+2 ebrake lines. They fit but extremely tightly. I ended up having some issues with the lines rubbing against my driveshaft and was unable to route the lines on top of the plate due to the short length. I’m going to try the R33 lines and see if they are long enough to mount on top.

My setup includes a subframe rise and 1pc driveshaft.

E-brake cable will touch driveshaft

Nice quality , fast shipping but not a direct bolt on, they could of design it differently so the end user doesn’t have to modify it.

Hi Kay, I don't quite follow. What was the issue that you encountered?
