V6 to Brembo conversion :help:

I was thinking of doing the conversion but i had a few questions.
Is it worth it?
Can I do it myself (Im pretty good with cars)?
What is a good place to get them power coated?
What will I need other than the calipers, pads, rotors and pins/clips?
How could i make this cost less than $1080 if thats possible
and Where can i find a write up on how to do the conversion if i can do it myself.


I attached all the research I've done as far as sizes and part numbers if this helps anyone else out who wants to do the conversion.

Thanks in advance

Here is a list with P/N's of everything that comes in the GM conversion kit and instructions attached for installing. Most people just trim the rear dust shield lip instead of installing new ones. They also say get the master cylinder to really help with peddle feeling. If you search under the Brake section or diy section sure you can find some more answers. Hope this helps you.

I just did this two weeks ago. If you want to save money look for a set of used calipers. You should be able to find a complete set for under $500 dollars. Some are new take-offs. I was able to get all four calipers, rotors, and pads for $450. One rotor was warped so I am getting new rotors for the front. Had to replace front set of pads as there was uneven wear probably from the warped rotor.

To get your calipers powercoated, the caliper has to be rebuilt. None of the local powercoat places would do that and I wasn't able to find a shop that would rebuild them either. I ended up not getting them coated.

Go on ebay and look in the classifieds for a set of calipers. 2010 thru 2015 use the same size. There is a place that is on ebay that will do the powercoating and rebuilding of your calipers for $330. Don't remember the name at this time, but it will come up when you do a search for Camaro SS brake calipers.

Good luck and it does make a big difference in braking.

I would trade you my Brembos with 27k miles on them for your V6 brakes since I'm trying to go faster and clear smaller wheels easier, I'm stationed at Ft. Riley Kansas though :/. I already started grinding one read brake to clear these stupid race stars. I have Hoosiers mounted on my 17x9.5 race stars that are supposed to fit but don't quite fit.. Lol.

Would you swap rotors and mounting hardware too?

Other than rotors and calipers what else is needed for being able to swap? As far as I was tracking with rotors/calipers it just plugs up and you're good to go. But I would swap rotors too. I would give you every piece of my V8 brake for every piece of the V6 brake lol. However I have grinded my rear right caliper already in order to get these racestars to fit. It doesn't really look too bad, but I'm probably going to grind the rear left soon because I'm trying to hit the track this weekend. Already got Hoosiers on my racestars ready to go :/.

Too bad the lugs on the racestars ALSO aren't a great fit, it's extremely annoying to get the wheel on.

You grinder the caliper? Isn't that kinda a bad idea

Are you still looking to trade V6 brakes?
