i know a guy put them on his C5 vette, but that's the same basic platform

From the ZR1?

early on guys were talking about doing it but there was something wrong with the ABS computer on the Camaro. From what the GM guys said (can't remember who it was now) the camaro abs computer doesn't work well with the ZR1 brakes. But Man that would be the ultimate setup for a camaro.. Talk about a budget way to get a full CS bake setup...

STOPPING is over-rated. :bellyroll:

They're great. For a car that weighs 3400 lbs. You're better with the CTS-V setup :thumbsup:

There is a full system with GT-R Calipers and Carbon Ceramic Rotors we have spec'd out with Brembo specifically for the 5th Gen. They are incredible brakes, but they are incredibly expensive. I hope we find a client that is interested in this level of perfection... soon.

Yep!

With the setup I have now, when I'm out goofing off, I keep pulling up short in the turns...

It's hard to make your self brake later then you are used to.

budget? well, if $8500 is your brake budget, i guess that's about right...
and i couldn't remember if the ABS was a problem or not. i ain't really had much time or reason to keep up with the camaro mods since i joined the AF. really nowadays, i just stick around to hang out with y'all :thumbsup:

There are a number of Pro-Touring Builds running ZR1 brakes with an adjusted ABS cal. The issues you have with that setup are the limited selection of pads and the cost of replacing a SCRATCHED rotor. If you go off course and a pebble or two happen to scratch your brand new ZL1 rotor be prepared to chuck it in the garbage. Now the carbo rotors we have specd with Brembo are still good even with a scratch ;-)
