Which would still leave you with different brand discolored calipers and probably no lines or pads. And you can find the parts for much less than 1400. Thats the whole point of the conversation.

this will get you started on amazon but you will have to get the rest by doing more searches which amazon kinda does for you.

Xplosive Performance is a Wilwood Dealer
As is
R1 Concepts (recently)
as is
A&A Corvette in Oxnard (where you live)

The price for the Wilwood kit was in camparison to the Pace CTS-V kit....and is a complete front kit including pads.
http://wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKi...maro&option=SS (V-8) only.(OE. w/ Brembo Brakes)

Great find on the Amazon CTS-V Calipers! Thats is lowest price I've ever seen. I've been buying more auto stuff off Amazon.....the prices are the lowest....too bad they don't have the Wilwood 2010 Big Brake kit. They have other Wilwood Kits, just not for the 2010. Maybe we should call em and tell em to stock it.

I'd start a thread here the brake sponsors are sure to see it.

Suspension / Brakes / Chassis

The issue is if you are upgrading, not just replacing, you need the rest of the parts.....which is the Pace Kit....too bad you can't buy the Pace kit less the calipers.

But how much are you going to save in comparison to the Pace Kit?
Is it worth the time consumed in the hunt? And the anxiety of not knowing if you have the right part of the proper quality that will hold together under heat and stress?

the part numbers are usually listed with the parts sold so all u need is a verified parts list. the savings are well worth the hunt down to me. i dont think a vendor is going to beat 236 per 6 piston brembo caliper

Rotors/calipers/hardware will have me right around 900-950, then lines, pads and fluid. Not sure how I will color match yet. But that's almost $500 less, if that aint worth your time then you're too rich for me to understand your train of thought. Its all the same parts/quality so no risk as long as you buy the right stuff. The list has been posted a number of times on here.

And the pace kit less the calipers is just 2 rotors.

OK...so add it on up?

Rounded:
Calipers: 240*2=480 (Does this include pins and clips?)
Rotors: 200*2=400
Pads: 200 (for mediocre ones)
Bolts: 20
Shipping: 100

=$1200.00? And I don't know if my kit is complete?

+ if you don't like silver...to change the color = $430 to have them repowdercoated.

=$1630
And you still have a "passenger car" kit.

For and additional $300.....you can have a full race spec kit that was engineered to hold speed and brake deep.

To me there is not much of a comparison.....even if you're using the CTS-Vs as dress up....cuz those Big Wilwood "look" more serious behind that wheel.
