    You won’t get cheaper than that but only couple of hundgy more on eBay. Amazon Prime is like Costco membership, very efficient and quick worthwhile if you shop online, this deal would pay for itself and still save.
    Yes I got CTS-V brembos all 4 pistons ea, was the first here about four years ago. Now done 180k km on front rotors looking to switch up to the front combo I quoted above. Coz looks really.
    That includes everything, best DBA rotors 370mm per CTS-V.
    Regarding piston displacement vs master cylinder there has been raised several times over the years, it is the same master cylinder used SS & ZL1.

    Never ever think about buying HSV brakes again. Google that, better still speak to Matt or Greg at Race Brakes / GSL Rallysport the forum sponsor.
    They really provide good advice.

    Am I right in saying the CTS-V brakes are the same as the Camaro brakes?

    Basically, yes. They are mounted differently on the CTS-V so you need to swap the bleed and pipe around, the plus though is that one of the rear pistons are larger than the other, forget what that’s called, but means correct application of the pad to rotor. More effective and no squealing.
    Camaro rear rotors are different means no handbrake maybe same with CT-V, also different length hydraulic lines.
    Best to speak with GSL for more detail. You don’t need steel braid really.

    Camaro wheels, diff and the rear sub frame, CTS-V wheels, Z28 intake, headers and brakes. Variable Valve timing from the Camaro L99, rest is cosmetic.

    Good question. I suspect the answer is yes. An engineers cert will be required.

    To the letter of the law, if you use a full HSV system you won't need a certificate but if you use parts from elsewhere in the GM world but not available for a Commodore you do need a certificate.
    It's one of those things where ... I couldn't suggest someone else bend the rules, but I'd kinda consider doing it.

    So you think TMR considers HSV and Holden interchangeable but Chevrolet and Holden not?!
    HSV in this regard is another manufacturer altogether, so six pistons need a cert. :confused:

    I don't know anything about Tommi Mäkinen Racing, but the NSW RMS most definitely considers an HSV Commodore to be "a Commodore" in terms of mods & the requirement for an engineering certificate, ie. the widest factory wheels fitted to a model, the largest-capacity & highest-power engine, yadda yadda.

    You could also refer them to themselves, it's probably a lot less effort than going to that post which goes back to themselves. :)

    Transport and Main Roads Queensland, is as different to Roads and Maritime Authority New South Wales as HSV is to Holden.
    When I get busted for faking an HSV in QLD I don’t think referring TMR inspectors to RMS is easier or weighs more than pointing the finger at you and your online guidance.
