Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

The first photo you posted is right side of the car, showing outer bleed port in correct (upper) position, and the second photo, while not a really clear view, does look like there is a valve with rubber cap. This would be the right side caliper viewed from inboard, looking upward.

Is this correct?

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

Something is hinky, or I haven't been paying attention.....still believe there needs to be an inboard bleeder. Is the photo showing top or bottom? Is there a hex plug in the inboard upper position? The reference photo from Rock Auto (Cardone reman caliper) shows a bleeder on both sides. Did you buy ...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

There MUST be a bleeder on the inboard side of that caliper - get that camera up inside the wheel opening and show us! https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=8001960&cc=3353478&jsn=458 Scroll through the 4 pictures in the link (same photo source I posted earlier) - that's the Cardone caliper yo...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

There you go--that's the Gen6 Camaro caliper for 345mm rotor--definitely has a bleeder on the inboard side of the caliper body.

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

Thanks I only did the front. These Brembos only have 1 bleed screw on the outside of the caliper these are massive as they have to stop a 700HP Camaro they came off maybe there is an air bubble on the inter section of the caliper Take another look.....these are the Gen6 Camaro (Alpha) calipers runn...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

Even with that, how is stopping power? Are you using 355 rotors and earlier generation Zeta Brembo calipers, or 345 (OE PPV) rotors and current generation Alpha calipers? Only other thing that comes to mind is whether GXP & SS, with fixed calipers, used a different pedal ratio than PPV's, so that re...

Re: Spongy Pedal after Brembo update

What pads are you using with the Brembo swap(?) - that can impact pedal feel. Just to be 100% clear, the calipers are installed with bleed ports at the top - yes? I suggest you do another bleed - perhaps with a pressure bleeder - if that means having a shop do it, so be it....it's worth it. If doing...

Re: New owner from Georgia, hello!

just a couple, for now....no regular events just for PPV. Given our proximity to ATL, the Caffeine & Octane monthly events usually have a good G8 turnout. Annually (and again for 2020) the G8 (now Holden) Extravaganza is held in the spring in Valdosta. Other than that, it's sort of hit-or-miss here ...

Re: Holden WM maplight & harness

G8 would also be a source--in either case, the front map light will be fine to fit to PPV, for anything at the rear, some extension of the wiring would be needed--not a big deal. The only difference is that most if not all G8's were black, where SS is a "close" match to PPV, which 11-13 (WM) was "li...
