Skyline 4-spot front brakes

I might be planning an upgrade in power soon so I think I need some more braking performance, which will involve throwing away the standard garbage.
My question is this, can I fit the R32 GTS-t front brake ROTORS as well as calipers to my VL, I'd probably want to keep the R32 stud pattern and have the rear re-drilled due to a better choice of aftermarket second hand wheels. What would be involved in doing the rotor swap? I'm pretty sure I need a adaptor plate of some description to fit the calipers to the strut.
Thanks in advance, Craig.

yeah but the commsport adapters might not suit with the Nissan rotors.

Hey, i am doing the same conversion on mine. I got some 330mm VP HSV rotors and the nissan 4 spot calipers and the brackets from commsport that are designed for the 330mm rotor. I reckon you are better off using the holden rotor than the nissan.
