Hey!!!! Those look just like mine.

You said it was worth the time. But is the stopping difference woth the money? Basically is the difference a super duper difference? I wondered about this.

IMHO yes a big difference with a slight touch of the pedal she wants to stop not like the factory V6 brakes.

Yep drop Chris a line at Fesler great bunch to work with.

Looks GREAT. I am happy to hear that it is an easy install, however I am also not wanting to play around with my brakes.

Trust me I understand I would have had a shop install them but my father is a retired ASE Cert GM mechanic he used to work on the Corvettes so I felt I was in good hands.

How bad is the Brake Dust buildup on the wheels? Is is better or worse than the stock V-6 Brakes.

Great Job on the install.

so far after 150 miles they seem the same then again I did not have much brake dust with the V6 ones.

How about the spongy feeling the V6 brakes had? It is gone now right?

I think I read the V6 stopping power matched the V8's with factory brakes to begin with. Looks cool though.

Thanks for the detailed install description. It's nice to know that the swap is that simple. I knew the drag racing guys were swapping out rear V6 brakes on their SS's to fit 16" drag tires but wondered how the swap would go in reverse!

A little help - I am about to order the SS Brembo Calipers from Chris, the Stillen Slotted & Drilled rotors, Hawk Cermaic pads and Goodridge Stainless Steel brake lines from Charlie at Stillen - I know these will fit the 20" RS rims but what to be sure my winter rims - Sport Edition ST4s will work OK with the SS Brembos - they're 20"x8.5", 34mm off-set, and 6.18" back-spacing. You guys see any issue with the winter rims? Thanks.

Looks great. My brother is about to do this and I will be putting them on.

Is there anyone making stainless braided brake lines for these?
