Just got mine back from the painter and they are HUGE. Now they'll match my blue rears. Just waiting on rotors now.

Yes and yes. I did purchase the dura stop for $45. But after talking to a brake engineer at GM I ordered the OEM pads for $175. I will not be trying the dura stop on the track.....actually already swapped them this afternoon.

I have received data in regards to the factory pads temp ranges from testing at GM and will share what I can later....

Finally, I am using the Silver CTS-V rear calipers to match the front and they ARE NOT a direct bolt on. Both the GEN1 and GEN2 calipers require modifications to use. I KNOW "but everyone says they bolt on" They are all wrong as a modification is need to both to use.

I ordered both sets-to view/confirm the differences....I will post a separate thread about the calipers, differences and mods that need to be made to use them.

Thanks for validating the pad info. I was basically going by my gut on the appearance of the two different pads and drew the same conclusion and you are correct the photos I took don't show how different the pads really are.

Beautiful, did they have to take the calipers apart to do that?

The calipers are a one piece design unlike the rears which are 2 piece with O-ring seals between the 2 half's. You can see some blue overspray on the pistons in the picture so it looks like they were just masked off and painted. I wonder how that paint will hold up to the heat as it looks like auto paint rather than rattle can like VHT high temp paint. I've used car paint on engine blocks with mixed results, sometimes having the paint lift off in the higher heat areas. I am going to paint my calipers using VHT caliper paint. I plan on stripping the silver paint off by blasting with glass beads. I used duct tape to mask off the pistons and bleed screws which I hope will stand up to the blasting.

Dropspeed, thanks for the excellent info. I ordered the silver calipers, 12227 ss lines, 171-1040 Brembo pads and pin kit. Now just waiting to see if the ZL1 rotors drop from $339.00 to a lower price but if not I'll order them next week.
Do you know if the calipers pistons need to be removed before powdercoating of simply taped up really well? Most likely R&R before or after done but just wondering.

Yea, I looked at the one caliper I have and see they are one piece like you said, doh! And there is no V recess. Just an optical illusion of the V decal at least to my eyes at a quick glance. Sounds like you've been down this road. I will just leave mine silver with the V decal for now and enjoy the fade free braking.

I started bead blasting the calipers in prep for painting. Based on bead blasting the factory finish is powder coated not painted. Powder tends to move around under blasting (more flexible than paint) so most of the surface I just knocked off the shine rather than completely stripping down to bare metal. Blast material more aggressive than glass bead would do a better job getting the old powder coat off.

Powhusku, those calipers looks fu*&ing awesome! I have the yellow Vs from amazon and they look sweet on my cyber grey. Will post photos shortly.
You should post once on your car! Are they the same blue as the ZR1 caliper?

Is there any difference in clearance from the caliper to the wheel vs stock brembo's?

I didn't measure but I'd guess it's about the same...

I just measured them from the disc surface of the rotor it's 56mm for a CTS-V caliper.

I know proper measurement would be from the face of the hub but I don't feel like pulling a wheel today. Sorry, that should give you something to reference though.
