I'm putting together my parts-list for my Pathfinder V8 brakes conversion. I'm not going to go to the extent that some do with the fancy EBC rotors and pads.

For now I'm looking at Powerstop S3714 reman calipers, Powerstop Z23 or Z26 pads, and I'm mulling my choices for rotors. From Rock Auto the Raybestos rotors appear to be at a balance of price and claimed quality. They have a 320mm/12.6" rotor that's got some weird groovy slots. It's twice the price of the base rotor.

What are your thoughts on Raybestos? I haven't bought rotors in many years, donno what the quality is like, but I have at least heard of that brand. Most of what Amazon was selling many of the others in the "economy" and "daily driver" categories on Rockauto were unknown to me. If you don't like Raybestos, is there any supplier in the sub-$150 category for rotors that you do like?

I'd feel comfortable with raybestos, been around a long time... i had no idea we could swap pathy brakes on, that's super cool. looking forward to the post on it. is that everything we'd need, for under $300? that ain't bad at all, how much larger are the pathfinder rotors?
I believe you’ll need 17” wheels to fit Pathfinder brakes.

That is my understanding as well. Fortunately I'm running ... 17" Pathfinder steel wheels.

There are several threads on the forum for the Pathfinder V8 brakes, but none of the ones I've found have gone into particular detail unless they're going with the very expensive brake parts.

I did not see any hubs listed, Are you you using Pathy hubs?

Hub part numbers are the same. 40202-4X01A originally, superseded by 40202-9BT1A.

I knew you were running the 17” steel wheels (they look good!) The comment was directed at PhatB.

When i looked into it a bit ago, the pathfinder calipers use the same size pistons as the frontier calipers. I'm curious if you can just swap the caliper mounting brackets to the frontier calipers. I haven't always had the best luck with remaned calipers, so keeping the stock calipers on the pathfinder brackets would be a plus. Or if you could just buy the brackets...

Part numbers on the pads are different. I expect not.

I did the ground work on this a few years ago when looking into putting the V8 Pathfinder brakes on my 2006 (V6) Pathfinder. The V8 was available on the 2008-2012 Pathfinders. It can also be applied to V6 Gen 2 Frontiers and Xterras. The V8 Pathy rotor has a 1" larger diameter. Steering knuckle, hub, caliper mount bolts and brake hoses are all the same. You just need the V8 rotors, pads and calipers w/ mounting bracket and hardware...and you must have at least 17" wheels.
I went with the powder coated calipers and EBC rotors and pads, but you can just as well use generic or non-performance calipers and pads. There will be a difference in stopping power, obviously, with a performance rotor and pad. The best rotors are made from a high-carbon content, cast iron. EBC rotors have that, although I would've went with the non-slotted/non-dimpled EBC rotors in hindsight and the "Green stuff" EBC pads instead of the "Yellow stuff" pads. The reason for that is the combination I used creates a good amount of brake dust and is a little too "grabby," but they are a definite improvement over the stock V6 setup and the "soft pedal" is no longer there. I also used stainless steel, braided brake hoses and Wagner DOT 5.1 brake fluid.
