wow! they even use the same retainer screw holes!

Please let these fit!
Rotors fit fine, bolt circle proper, retainer screws proper, dust cover for parking brake adjuster is alright, however the issue of total fitment comes in from the mounting bracket of the caliper.

The width between the pads in the calipers is more than large enough to accommodate the Equus rotors, but at the bottom lip of mounting bracket prevents the rotor from slipping in. It bulges inward a bit. I measured 0.702" in that area. The thinnest the Equus rotors can be taken to is 0.725".

The calipers on the Equus look identical to our single piston rear caliper, so I would assume the part numbers are the same (On the caliper alone), I know the pads are the same part number (At least FMSI number). I would imagine the Equus uses a wider caliper mounting bracket.

So to complete this upgrade, you will also need an Equus caliper mounting bracket. Which I don't have access to at the moment. So for now, these rotors are going back.

well this is sort of good news, it means we can at least fit vented rotors in the rear, just need to have them designed around the GC's caliper mount.

How about genesis 4.6 brakes? I haven't had any luck finding info on that, but the 4.6 has 2 piston calipers just like the brembos and equus.

I think you mean 4 piston. The GS 4.6 brakes are pretty much the same as the Equus, they just use a different sized rotor, 330mm vs. 345mm, however I've already commented that the rotor size is likely to make little to no difference in brake performance unless you're on a track and breating the hell out of it for hours.

Gotcha, thanks for the update on that.. I found some other posts you made about the sizes and things. Seems like a decent upgrade for a base 2013. Much cheaper than Brembo.

I was building my own BBK for my 2006 Tiburon, and thanks to this thread it turned out way better than i had originally hoped. I took the 13.4 front gen coupe brembo rotors and the 4 piston gen sedan V8 calipers, designed and made an adapter bracket, and now have a 13.4 4 piston front brake setup that fits inside my stock 17" wheels with a 10mm spacer.

Heres a few pics.

most likely going to leave it black, have them powder coated, and the rear one's as well. everything looks good in black.

also depending on condition when i get them i'll see if i send them off to be rebuilt.

Wings cross into ricey territory in my opinion.

Hey guys quick question on this:

If I were to get stainless steel lines for these calipers will the brembo versions fit?

Also what are the pad options for these calipers? Other than EBC?

I'm sorry. I read all this but I'm still have this question. Calipers from which model of Equus/Genesis Sedan will fit?

same brake lines for the Brembos as the base models.
Sorry, I just want to be clear.

For the Equus front calipers, I have to get the Brembo versions or the Base version SS lines? I'm under the impression that they are different.

I'm getting the latter model calipers and it looks like the brembos look would fit better... it looks like there is an aligment hole like the brembos.

Just want to confirm.

Thanks in advance.
