    Um are you saying you have 17s in the front and 16s in the rear? The only rear brakes that will fit 16s are stock. You could do the c5 conversion in the front but for truely big brakes you are going to need bigger than 17s. Also a big brake kit for front and rear is going to be more than $3k. The front brakes do most of the braking so you really only need to do the front.

    the c5 z06's are superior because they are pressure cast not gravity cast. Since you are sticking with 17's you can upgrade the brake lines and pads. All that money can go toward actually needing the big brake kit now.
    What are you doing with the car?

    Unless you are going through fluids and pads after each track event, pads and lines will be enough.
