    I meant to write new brembo calipers from the factory are screen printed but somehow wrote genuine, my bad.. You posted that Empire powdercoated yours Red to match the rears hence why they used a decal. When changing caliper colour, majority of shops / DIYs will use a decal as its cheaper/logical as screen printing like the Brembo factory do is more expensive and time consuming.

    Maybe do a comparison write-up as a guide for others. Would be helpful

    Tryg, good info on the brake pads. Where did you buy the 6 Pot Calipers from?
    On another note, what’s up with Woooo’s posts changing language :confused:

    That's great mate. Thanks for that. I cant believe the size difference in brake pads between stock brembo and yours !!

    Hey digging again but after finding out that @Nened fitted the standard redline 4POTS behind SSV wheels I’m wondering if there is a difference in caliper thickness between 4POTS and 6POTS??

    Yes I believe it’s quite large difference, definitely a huge difference between the front and rear at least!

    I was thinking more from like disc face to back of the rim?
    The only thing stopping me doing the 6-4POTS is I thought I would need new wheels as well to clear the brakes but if they fit behind the standard SSV wheels that would be great as I quite like them.

    yeah thats what im refering too... not much room with my 20's even. these 6 pot are massive. unfortunately only Tryg would be able to advise you in comparison to the factory front 4 piston brembo.

    The 5th Gen Camaro 6-pot monoblock Brembos fit under stock SSV-R 19’s. I bought 20” for a new look.

    Did a comparison video on YouTube for Caliper size differences visually. Forgot about your question here mate should have measured them for you!

    I love the size of the 6pots there massive and really fill out the wheels.
    It is really making it hard to choose between going faster (cam upgrade)
    Or stopping and the added sex appeal of the 6/4 pots.

    LOL well you'll probly end up doing both so think of it this way , if you do the cam first it will take you longer to save for the brakes because of extra petrol costs :)

    The mistress is a weekender/ road triper for me so doesn’t get used much and I’m thinking after about 2 months of the new cam and play time i should be able to let her sit and get the money together for the brakes and suspension

    Make it stop first, then make it go fast.
