Jordan thanks for the confirmation. I'll have to get the rears because I need to get some money for the Red 1LE calipers. I personally don't like Red brakes I think a silver to match the interior trim will look fantastic. I'll need to paint/powder coat them as they look a little rough.

Tell Tyler I'm still down for the Pfadt headers I talked to him about last week. It's just going to be delayed a few weeks. I plan on sourcing what I can for the brakes from you guys. So you'll still get my money. lol

Thanks again.

Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next

Pete if it were up to me the Fire Trucks would be black too... lol

Don't worry when I order that rear Z bar and the lowering coils I'll get them blacked out too... lol

Now what to do with the bushings?

I really prefer the sleeper look.

Okay it's off topic but I saw a black Engine in a Pierce catalog IIRC and it looked weird. The catalog also had a fire engine that was damn near purple in color! Red is what most people still associate and recognize Fire engines, and ladder trucks, and Ambulances to be. Rode on them for 29 years and happy glad to be finally done! I need Pedders coil overs on my ZL1 Pete!

I think Chicago has Black apparatus. I ride red and grew up around the yellow/green. I'm a third gen f/f kinda wish I was retired though. I got 15 to go...

Meanwhile in other news I haven't heard back from this guy with the brakes yet... I need to call him.

You can always road trip that beast up here to the midwest where it is much cooler and better tracks like Road America.

MVP is running OCT 12-13.

Little too far for me. ECR and motorsports ranch down in Ft Worth are only a couple hrs away and I will run them.

I am just a little concerned with oil temps. I have added a custom Earls wide 16 row oil cooler to the HKE 427. That has helped keep the oil temps on my aftermarket full sweep oil temp gauge down to 225 max driving around town and beating lightly on the car. This is with ambient temps above 105.

I have a feeling that on a road course in 100deg heat i will see 270-300 deg temps within a few laps. I am running Amsoil Dominator 15W50 and know this oil can take it for a track day. Just dont want to push it

I just need to get the car down to ECR and see what the temps really do. I could always run a few laps all out then back off the boost and rpms for a few laps etc.

Do these CTS-V Calipers bolt right on to a new 2014 LT2/RS? WHat size Rotors do they use and what brand Rotors will work?

Is it much better to go this way VS the SS Take offs?

I would love to see photos on a Camaro.

Depends on the wheels you'll be using. Not 100% sure but I think you'll need 19's at a minimum. CTSV rotors are 14.4" and I think the only rotors available are stock CTSV, ZL1 or racing brake.

Stock rotors are 14.6", not 14.4"

Are there any differences between the stock ZL1 calipers and the CTS-V calipers? The prices in the part catalogs show the ZL1's for $1000 each but the Caddy's are only $650 (although you can buy them on Amazon for $250).

Yes, but they need the right offsets or the spokes will hit the calipers.

Thought so. Would there be any difference with the "stock" calipers vs their AC-Delco counterparts?

Reason I ask is the AC-Delcos are $260 on Amazon, but the stock calipers are over $1k in the parts catalogs.

AC Delco does not make the calipers...Factory parts for GM vehicles are consolidated under the AC Delco brand.

  • Stock calipers and ACDelco calipers are one in the same.
  • ZL1 and CTSV are the same components with different paint and logo
  • The take on the red CTSV caliper is higher than expected...excess Silver and yellow calipers
  • Dealer cost is higher than the Amazon prices, but they are the same part.
