My new 15" slotted and dimpled rotors finally arrived! One step closer to installing the massive 6-piston Brembos. Starting the custom fabrication this weekend... Stay tuned!

Car looks great. I love that transmission shifter. If you don't mind me asking, where did you pick that up?

Thank you! I got the shifter from Phastek Performance. I was hesitant to change from stock but I do not regret it. It's a small but nice touch for the interior and functions just like stock. It does get a little cold in cold weather though haha!

First Camaro with 6-piston SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brembo calipers.

My motto has always been "go big or go home" so the 4-piston Brembo and 14" rotor was no longer big enough. As soon as I saw the massive size of the SRT8 Brembo and 15" rotor I knew that's what my car needed!
To get an idea of the size of the SRT8 caliper, it measures approx 18" along the curved side compared to the ZL1 caliper which measures approx 16". SRT8 face is 4" wide vs ZL1 face is 3.5" wide.
The SRT8 Brembo is obviously not made for the Camaro so custom fabrication was needed to install them, but since my father is a custom fabricator that was not a problem.




6-piston Brembo caliper vs 4-piston Brembo caliper


Brake pad from 6-piston Brembo vs pad from 4-piston Brembo


Pins and retainer from 6-piston vs pins and retainer from 4-piston


Drilling bolt pattern


Making the custom bracket for the calipers

Thank you! They are the Brembos produced for the SRT8 Jeep so they are a bit larger then the 6-piston Brembo on the ZL1. Had to go as big as possible haha!
