Speedy's 13WL 231mm Brake Upgrade

I've been working on the Tundra brake upgrade. I know a lot of folks have done this with great threads of information out there. I did a quick video on how to rebuild some junk yard calipers for those that wanna save a few bucks as well as how to clean them up and paint them if desired. I'll update this thread with a "how to" video for installing them as well in the near future.

I had a lot of trouble finding those caliper decals so I made some in Photoshop and had them done by a local sign shop. I have extras if anyone needs them just shoot me a PM.

I have white and black.

Hey Speedy!

First off, I'd like to say that I'm glad to see you posting on this forum. Your Project SportRunner page represents a massive contribution to the knowledge base surrounding the TRD Supercharger and the details surrounding installation & tuning on a 5VZ. I've used your website as a resource time and time again since I picked up my 2001 4Runner. THANKS!!!!!!

For anyone who hasn't seen Speedy's website, do yourself a favor and go check it out:

Project SportRunner

The two videos you put together on the Tundra setup are right in line with all your previous work... awesome. Would you mind if I added the videos, with proper credit to you of course, to my writeup on the 231mm TBU? The writeup has become the standard go to reference point for just about everyone doing the swap and your videos will get much more visibility in that thread. It'll definitely boost your number of youtube views on the videos.

Here's the thread I'm talking about, almost 59K hits and climbing:

Sure thing bud. That's why I put those videos together, to make it easier on folks making these mods. That thread is fantastic and I referenced it heavily when searching for my parts.

Excellent videos. I picked up my 231mm calipers and rotors at a junk yard for $140 at lunch and placed an order for the rebuild kit at my local Toyota dealership (part number is 04479-60081 as shown in Speedy's video). It was $13.77 if anyone is wondering. Ordered my decals from you. Thanks. For anyone doing this with junkyard rotors, the minimum thickness on these rotors is 26mm so take a micrometer with you to make sure the rotors are thick enough. I picked up a cheap digital micrometer at Harbor Freight for $15.
