What do you think? Should be getting them in Febuary or March.
I'll be doing the install myself, possibly with Aaron's help if I can talk him into coming over and hanging out to pick his brain.

SHould look something like this, I photoshopped the caliper I am getting and half of the rotor so you could see the size difference.

Scott i know this is for show in all but please do your homework on BBK kits... Have you tried to find a bigger brake booster? What fluid are you going to run? Will the pads your getting fade at what temp or abuse?

Its already purchased, built and on its way to my house.
It really doesnt matter what they stop like, I am sure it will be better than stock single piston dont you figure? The brakes are designed to work with the factory master cylinder and work with the anti lock braking components.

Is this setup any way similar to the Corvette motor'd Soltice? I remember reading an article saying when they hit the brakes it was such an abrupt stop that without harnesses you'd be picking teeth out of the dash.

So, who is gonna come over for the install on Wednesday? Anyone have a reverse bleeder to pump in the fluid from the caliper and remove all air we can use? Also, what fluid would you recommend using? Royal Purple?
