I agree. All of my questions have been answered and I will not be going with the raw caliper.

Do you understand that what we're talking about here are the same brake calipers that are on the ZL1?
I track my 1LE and switching to the 6 piston CTS-V calipers and with the stock Brembo pads I pulled my braking points in 200' at some places at Watkins Glen. Next time out I'll have Carbotech XP10s and XP8s.

This is not going cheap. This is just a very economical mod to get a great set of brakes.

I think he's referring to the rebuilt calipers I was asking about not the idea of the CTSV swap.

Doing the ZL1/CTS-V swap isn't the question, it's whether you go with new or rebuilt parts. When it comes to brakes, going with new brand-name is the only way to go.

It's one thing to get a body kit off of ebay to save some $, it's another if you're trying to skimp on something that helps keep you on the track...

Understand, sorry for the misunderstanding.
