It's just brackets for the calipers that you need to cut off a little chunk of the spindle to clear and they bolt on like normal brakes. Cost it the main thing that really depends on the rotor choice. Seeing I'm doing rear brakes too I'm thinking at least 1500. I'm not done with the research yet so I don't have a good price.
    wait i thought z06's stopped in a much shorter distance than regular c5's and had diff brakes? aparently im wrong..lol

    It's the pad compound that helps them out. I'm fairly sure they both use 13" rotors. I don't have the printouts with me to see exactly what the differences were. I'll do a write up on it once I get done with my conversion.

    Maybe for the next set of rotors, but not this time!

    The calipers are not very expensive. You can get them for 106 each from any GMPP web site. The rear calipers won't work. The Vette calipers are the same size as the F-body ones, but they are made different and the piston sizes are different. F-body front rotors are 12" and base C5's are 13". The same size as the Brembo big brake kits for the F-bods.

    I doubt I'll be able to hear it over my exhaust. I can't hear the stock one at all.
