Do any of these black brake rotors from EBC, HAWK, etc... Actually remain black or do they all rub/erode away? I want black brake rotors, but I don't want it to look just like any other rotor after a few months
Anyone think Power Stop is as good as EBC, Hawk, StopTech, etc...?
I know EBC is one of the best brake brands out there. I use their Double-H Sintered brake pads on my 2014 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636 ABS. Alot of people use those pads for track & street. 90% of sportbike racers use EBC.
I just hate how rotors, like how the OEM's have rust on them. Reason why I am wanting to go with a drilled &/or slotted rotor, is because I just installed a lift kit and have big heavy tires. I installed a pair of PRG Red Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines while doing the lift. My brake pads actually look brand new, but they are Nissan branded, so I know they aren't made if anything special. It will stop a relatively new Titan no problem, but a 2011 Titan Crew Cab Pro-4X, with some accessories and 101k miles... Braking declines.
So I bought a pair of EBC GreenStuff pads @ $78. I wanted to go with the Orange Stuff, but they were twice the price. The Green Stuff was expensive enough.
But now I'm thinking of returning them and going with the highest friction pad, the OrangeStuff Extra Duty pads @ $151. The YellowStuff is surprisingly a tad cheaper at $145.
I'm assuming the YellowStuff would last a little longer.
Plus add on the 76lb Cooper Discoverer ST MAXX A/T's and it's a total different ball game. And the game is serious when you live in a rural area with darting deer, loose cows and roaming horses that can get out.
I plan on upgrading my tires now that I went to a 6" lift. I wanted a narrower tire for fuel economy & because I only had a 1.5" lift (on my Pro-4X Springs) front & rear, so I barely squeezed in a 295/70/18, which is basically a narrow 35. Its a 34.25" tall tire.
Now I want a 35 or possibly a 36, which I know is an odd rare size unless on a special rim. I'm looking for a tire thats not so heavy too. These Coopers seem awfully heavy, but who knows. I would love to find a D Rated tire instead of an Rated tire for the weight savings & ride quality. E Rayed tires are meant more for 3/4 ton & 1 ton pickups. I don't think I'd even max the tire's capacity while towing at max payload.
What I would really love to know, is how I can get the Akebono Caliper setup.
Apparently the Titan's, rarely, somehow came with Akebono calipers instead of Bosch calipers. The differnece is the Bosch setup has 320mm rotors & the Akebono setup has 350mm rotors
Rotors are going to wear (and slightly rust) where the brake pad touches regardless of coating. I have slotted, zinc coated rotors with plain old ceramic pads. My T weighs in right around 6k pounds without anyone in it, and it stops just fine. I don't like the ceramic pads and will go with metallic after they wear. Once they get hot they work fine, but up until then the brakes are soft, and I really have to press to get to stop if I have to. It's possible my lines are bad, but I've bled the brakes multiple times since I installed the pads, and the issue is still there.
Im planning on doing a custom turbo setup on my 2004 nissan titan king cab. as of right now if i do a single turbo its going to go right where the air box is but if i do a twin turbo setup one will go where the airbox is and the other one will go in place of the battery which will need to be...
In the event that you dont want to spend $250 for 5 hp (I don't), this is an easy way to increase air flow into your engine and put a little more growl under your hood.

I have a 2013 Nissan Titan and would like to know what the best route would be to add bolt on horsepower and throttle response? I was thinking about putting Doug Thorley headers on it with the stock exhaust and tuning it with a bully programmer or something similar? Does anyone know if there is...
Can anyone help me out.. I have a 2009 Titan and a buddy is gonna hook me up with his OEM head unit w/nav from a 2017 Titan. Does anyone know if wire harness is the same and if it would fit in the dash?
