Topic: Building Brembo caliper brackets
I'm building an ill-advised street car (500RWHP 2011 Police Interceptor) and I've gotta do something about the brakes.
There's a kit available that lets you run C5 Vette calipers on 14" Mustang GT500 rotors (you have to cut .030 out of the center bore to get them to fit,) but I really want to run a 4 (or even 6) pot Brembo caliper on the front, because with big, open 19" wheels, I want something that looks hella sweet in there.
The C5 doesn't have Brembos. The C6Z06 and C7 do, and there's a roadmap for upgrading C5s to those brakes. So it seems logical to me that if I can adapt Crown Vic->C5 then whatever needs to be done to the C5 to adapt to the Brembos shouldn't be too hard, right?
One other question, that might be kinda dumb but whatever: Does it matter that a Brembo caliper for a car with, say, 325 or 335mm rotors, gets used on a 355mm caliper?
Anecdotal experience is always welcome!
