I just finished. Got to play with my newest toy the mity vac 7205.
Vette calipers, camaro rotors, brembo pads and earls fittings.
Love it much smoother and stronger then the stotck brakes on a grand prix. Fills out the wheel pretty good.

SWEET!!!! Those are large calipers. Your stopping distance must have decreased quite a lot.

Hopefully your tires can grip well enough to stop you.

Very nice! What modifications did you have to make to get them to fit?

Am I the only one who thinks that looks a little odd? As in... not very good? It looks too big for the small wheel/high profile tire.

Looks fine to me, but its about performance too. He should get much improvement in just about every category of braking performance including fade, pad life, feel and stopping distance.

Looks better from a distance. Want factory 17"wheels. Still looking. Only factory wheels.
To fit the brakes fit is very simple. You need a spacer and new banjo bolt. Google f body brake upgrade.

The 17" OEM Comp G wheels are hard to find. The problem around here is the roads, low profile stuff seems to get bashed up rims.

I just keep the Starfish wheels.
Are these the ones you were thinking of only polished instead of silver? 5x115 bolt pattern.
