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?

Getting a hold of Chris at Fessler is like pulling teeth, been trying since you posted this reply. Can you tell me what comes with the set. Is it just the calipers, pads, rotars, and brake line??? Any info would be great, as I plan on upgrading the rotars, pads, and brake lines anyway, I was just wondering if it would be cheaper just to buy the items direct brand new as I can get all four calipers for $360 plus s/h

So in planning this upgrade I've considered ordering the OE Brembo Calipers new - here's the list of parts I think I need and would appreciate some help confirming I'm not missing anything:

92233189 Driver side front disc brake caliper, without pads, bracket, pins and clips.
92233188 Passenger side front disc brake caliper, without pads, bracket, pins and clips.
92233177 Driver side rear disc brake caliper, without pads and*bracket.
92233176 Passenger side rear disc brake caliper, without pads and bracket.
89047711 Front disc brake pad pin kit; includes 2 pins and one retainer.* 2 kits per vehicle - Charlie at Stillen indicated the pads don't come with the pins or retainer.
89047728 Rear disc brake pad pin kit; includes 2 pins and one retainer.* 2 kits per vehicle. - Charlie at Stillen indicated the pads don't come with the pins or retainer.
Plus
Stillen Slotted/drilled Rotors - front & rear - direct from Stillen
Goodridge G-Stop Braklines - ordered via Stillen
Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads - Front & rear - ordered via Stillen

Anything I'm missing? I'm having ECS here in NJ do the install so I don't want to have them tell me I'm missing any parts required. Thanks...

Looks like everything you listed is all you need they can use the factory bolts you should be good to go. When they go to install the rear rotors they will need to trim the backing plate (to replace it is a PITA).

How much are you being charged for all of these parts? Is is more than Fesler, if so what are you getting in the transaction that is not offered by Fesler?

I ordered the rotors, calipers, lines and pads from fesler for $500 plus shipping. Had everything installed yesterday and the mechanic told me everything looked brand new. They were used but probably less than 100 miles according to him. I think tally for all the items above is going to be quite a bit higher. Good luck getting a hold of the goodridge brake lines, I waited a month, they are still at least 3 weeks out, so i gave up and cancelled the order. Did the install with the original v8 lines and I am loving the difference.

Thanks for the info. I am on a waiting list at Fesler for the Brembos. I don't know how long it will take to be able to get the parts. I am just looking at other options until i hear from Fesler.

Its been a long time since I have posted but this is something I cannot pass up as I believe it is a good mod to do.

I couldn't get through to Chris at Fessler either, which in turn worked out better I believe. As I found http://www.thepowdercoater.com Talk with Mike he is one of the best guys to do business with very prompt with his emails as well. Anyway he gave me a good deal and he picked up all four brakes for me already. Plus he has a massive selection of powder coating colors including RJT aka Montery Red for you Corvette guys. For those who plan on doing this mod and going to put on a different rotor, pads and line I would not go with Fessler as you will be better off buying the items seperatly and Mike will give you a great deal.

Also for those who do not want to trim the back brake plate you can get these two items as well.

92227529 Driver side rear brake backing plate.
92227530 Passenger side rear brake backing plate.

Thanks to pewterz for getting this going and showing who easy and cheap it is.

Thanks for the info. I really want to try to get this upgrade done prior to C5Fest in April. I will look into this as another option.

The brakes will fit, BUT you will need new wheels! The RS package wheels will work or any other set with the same fitment.

My set I bought from Hennesy Motorsport is coming out of the paint shop this week. They will not fit on my current 20" tire and wheel set without spacers and I am not doing that.
