What is absolutely everything I need for V6 to SS brembo kit

So after only 22K mikes I apparently need fronts for sure and plan on just doing the rears, so When I need something I just do an upgrade and this something Ive wanted to do for a while. So what do I need for this? Was thing of R1 Drilled and slotted rotors and pads, Any thoughts on them? Price range for everything? Also if anyone has leads on a set of SS calipers please let me know especially already painted!

Well the obvious is a set of calipers (if you can find a cheap set of 6 piston go that route) front an rear.
For the front;
front dust shields
rotors
caliper bolts 2ea per caliper
brake line go ahead and upgrade to stainless
brake pads
pad pin kit

For the rear you’ll need;
complete backing plate with e-brake assy
correct rear rotors
caliper bolts
pads
brake line again upgrade to stainless
pad pin kit

Rock Auto is a great resource for this as well.
Don’t forget brake fluid (get a good DOT 4 like SRF or the Brembo HFC or hatever it is) and pad grease.
Not sure on the 15 V6 cars if you have to swap LCAs an rear sway bar.

Thank you, I would like to go 6 piston but Iím not sure if they would clear my wheels?

Thank you for the kind words and trust though I am not sure if I am an expert but I consider myself well informed when it comes to this conversion. I have done at least five complete conversions.

I wanted to make contact because I have a complete kit that I had recently put together. Member out of Maine had put a deposit on it then unfortunately his Camaro met up with a tractor trailer, thank God he's OK but the Camaro was put to rest.

I purchased a set of take off calipers from a local Chevrolet dealership that was setting on their shelf. Sent them out and had them professionally powder coated in Lolly Pop red, have all the OEM bolts, crush washers, backing plates with shoes, original OEM pads with hardware, lines, complete directions and so on. Instead of going to the bone yard I was fortunate to find this set as they had over 200 miles on them but less than 3 for sure. Parts man told me a gent purchased a new SS but wanted the six piston ZL1s Brembo's. He drove his new SS for about a week before they came in. Was setting in boxes all this time, virtually new! For $500.00 I knew what I was getting.

I elected to remove the crossover tube and leave it black.

you would also need an SS brake master cylinder to complete the conversion 100%

When I done my very first conversion, my own vehicle, I did go by the book and did change the master cylinder. Five conversions later there has been a couple that did not want to spend the extra money and did not change out the master cylinder. After bleeding the brakes I went for a test drive and honestly I didn't really see the difference? Maybe it's because I am old! Even when I changed mine out I don't think I felt much of a difference. Just saying.
