Does anyone have, or know where to find, a guide for taking the caliper apart? I want to powder coat them red and doubt it's a good idea to bake them assembled during the cure process.

It is very easy to do as I have done it before on my old race car.....I have done both paint and powder on Brembos that have been raced on and the paint holds up just fine. I just dont want to pull apart a brand new caliper. Mine will be painted, not powdered.

The reason I posted is when I was a mechanic I've seen people bring cars in that they had their shade tree guy put calipers on and couldn't get them to bleed out. What happened was they put the calipers on the wrong side and the bleeders were on the bottom instead of the top. If they won't physicly bolt up then its not able to be done but if they will mount up either way then that's what I was getting at.
Just thinking out loud.

Did you use VHT high temp paint or some other brand?

I got my calipers delivered today. I am buying my parts in smaller batches so my better half doesn't get alarmed. My first track day of the year won't be for at least another month so I have plenty of time to collect and install. Thanks for the heads up!

From my research into 6 piston set-ups for my car I found by far the lowest prices on Amazon if you are willing to use Silver or Yellow (or powder coat). The qty in stock fluctuates and sometimes the items go on back order, but if you keep checking back they are usually restocked often.

You can get a 6-piston front big brake set-up for about $1050.00 to $1300.00 depending on rotors and lines you pick.

Here you go: Part numbers and prices as of 3/18/2014

...

Thank you so much for this info! I ordered mine yesterday which was a full year ahead of what I had budgeted for. Next time you are in Toronto the Beer is on me.



Thanks also to Tyler at JDP Motorsports who has been answering all of my questions about this upgrade and others for quite some time now despite the fact that I wasn't even planning on purchasing this year. Because of this great service I will be ordering the remaining items from JDP in addition to some other goodies I have already bought including their brake cooling kit.

Great stuff all around guys!

Sorry. To clarify I didn't paint or powder them myself. I took them apart and had them painted/powdered. Then I rebuilt them with new seals etc.

As far as wheel fitment goes, will these fit the same wheels as SS calipers? I know the rotor circumference is bigger but still fits in a 20" wheel, I just don't want to buy these only to find my wheel spokes won't clear the caliper.

Also anyone know where to get a decent set of stainless brake lines that will fit these? If found a few made for the CTS-V but I dont think the rears are compatible with the rear SS brakes even though they use almost identical calipers, though I may be wrong.

We have a wheel fitment chart to confirm fitment.

We had a custom set up made by Goodridge long before the ZL1 lines were available. We've pretty much gone to the ZL1 lines in our packages or for customers looking to upgrade to this set up.

Kind regards,

Those are the Ac Delco durastop pads. Imo they are pure junk. I worked for a Delco distributor for 18 years and the number of complaints were insane. We now refer to them as Durasqueeks. Any delco pads that begins with a 17d is a durastop. Ones that begin with 171- are OE pads.

Ordered. Thanks Matt for all the research. So even 18s or 19s will fit over these these calipers? I might go lighter later. Thanks Jordan.

Not sure about the pads, thinking maybe the better Delcos are the way to go.

I am a little confused about the caliper bolts. P/N 11570788 are the standard SS bolts. You are just replacing these for good practice Matt?

And wouldn't the Goodridge lines be less flexible (better) than the ZL1 lines?

Fun fact: While I was ordering the calipers 2 more sold while I was putting my order together.

This will be a fun project and maybe get me away from the drag strip.

Fraxum,

Were you able to get the 2 piece rotors? I tried to order today and they were 3 to 4 weeks out. I am ok with the wait, I just hope I will still get the good price.
