Awesome job! I like the idea of not grinding the axle and the mechanical piston/parking brake design.
Looking at the final installed pics... At 9-1/2'', those brakes look lost in those Z24's wheels. lol

My questions are:
How would they hold up after repeated stops (especially high speed) since Saturns weigh in 2300-2400lbs while the Js are at 2600-2850lbs(convertible being the heaviest), not knocking here one bit, but just a fact on higher stress level for braking.
What was wrong with the Fiero's rotors? Fieros uses solid discs up front and back, none worked?
Are you using Saturn's 91-95, 96-99, or 00-02 hardware? There should be to much difference, but with each model change, usually there is an "update."
How would the spacing work? Standard spacing, then your 1/4, 3/8, 1/2? What would your kits consist?

I have every thing ready for now my swap and this pops up. Good thing I have not installed it yet. So I'm interested on any new news.

considering that the front brakes are responsible for something like 80+% of your stopping power, i'd wager that the saturn brakes will be fine and likely offer more stopping power than the factory drums.

All brake stuff never changed for the saturns except that the newest sedans didn't come with rear disc.

I never got the rears hot on my saturn but I blued the fronts.

Can we get a list of parts we will need to make this work minus the brackets.

Years and models and any extras I may need. Want to price out reman calipers and slotted rotors.

Thanks

Looks like this swap will start at about 180+ what ever the brackets cost. And then go up from there if you buy better pads and rotors. It will be even cheaper if you grab junk yard calipers.

UPDATE:

I took the car on a road trip today, put on about 250 miles everything is performing great. I also did some high speed 90+ to 0 stops,pedal mashed as hard as I could. Car stopped amazing, this is a significant improvement over drums lol. Ebrake is still working great, pulls up to almost exactly where when I had drums, if not lower. I disassembled everything when I got home and everything was still nice and tight, nothing out of place with the discs either. ABS is still 100% functional for those that are curious.

Any questions, post them up and Jeffie and I will try to answer them the best we can.

The 180 I listed was everything but the bracket that I found with a quick google search.
