    Default "High Performance" Caliper??

    I bought a pretty beat-up 260Z from a friend as a parts car. I bought it just on the strength of a few smart-phone pictures for $150.
    One of the selling points (in his mind, anyway) was that the car has what he calls "high performance" brakes. Now that I have the car, the only thing I can find on it that might conceivably be high performance is the front calipers.

    Does anyone recognize these? Any advice on whether they are worth swapping onto my '71 240?

    Thank you!

    Thanks for that. Good link. Mine definitely look similar to those.

    The only question I've got now is... what calipers are mine exactly? The numbers embossed on mine don't even come close to the codes mentioned in that link.
    Mine: 4 5P 11
    Mentioned in the link: S12+8, S12W, etc.

    Only important, I guess, so that I can figure out what pads to buy, and rebuild parts if necessary.

    Cheers,
    Christian

    Take the wheel and tire off and post a pic from that side. They look like 300ZX calipers from the back.

    S12, I think, is from the 92 Toyota Truck
