Dodge SRT Brembo's on Camaro SS

I went to an event recently that showcased Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep SRT cars for the 2012 model year (Challenger, Charger, 300, Grand Cherokee). All have the same 6.4L Hemi in them...pretty awesome cars. Each also has red Brembo brake calipers. As nice as these cars are I think the calipers would look even better on a camaro. Does anyone know if these same calipers are compatible with the SS camaro or where or how to find out?

Attached is a picture of the Charger's wheel.

Thanks!

Seems to be a lot of intrest in calipers lately.

You need to have your calipers powder coated and Mike is one of the best. Check out this thread for the info.

Are you looking at the STR 8 calipers as an upgrade or for the color?

You realize brembos come on higher trim camaros right? So why would you modify a different applications brembos to the camaro when they already make bolt on solutions?

I guess I'm really just looking for the color, not a perfromance upgrade as the SS obviously already has brembos (not sure if they have the same number of pistons, but regardless..). I basically envisioned a swap out to get stock red brembos from the SRT8 and then selling the camaro stock ones. After some research I think Mike the Powder Coater is definitely the way to go...I've seen his stuff on other threads here.
