Need help with brake upgrade options

Its come time for a brake upgrade on my 91 240sx. The stock rotors and pads are shot and the power is way to much for a stock braking system. This is what I was thinking but im having some issues with finding what I need in searches... I want to do the 300zx calipers since i can get them for a fairly cheap price. Im currently running a 4 lug 15" Enkei Racing wheel which i know will allow caliper clearance when it comes to caliper width. My problem is which rotor to go with and clearance issues. I was thinking a Project Mu rotor made for a late 80's model non turbo 300zx, which if i remember correctly came in 4 lug or so i remember seeing at the junkyard....i hope. i believe that particular rotor if im not mistaken came in 4 lug, is slightly bigger (by 1"), than the OEM 240 rotor. so with that in mind will a 300zx turbo caliper with a 300zx nonturbo rotor clear a 15" wheel if its at all possible?

anyone have any other brake upgrade options with atleast a 4 piston caliper that will clear 15" brakes with out going rotora, wilwood, or Brembo, as they are a little out of my price range for a kit.

you're really limiting your options with brakes by sticking with 15" wheels. Pretty much your only option is getting z32 brakes and just having the rotor re-drilled for 4-lug.

Upgrading to 16" wheels would open up many new choices such as upgrading to skyline GTR brakes, supra brakes, or q45 brakes
