Brake Conversion

Post by Jifa1322 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 8:51 pm

I have a 2011 PPV. So far, the 'top end' has been outfitted by Texas Speed to include throttle body, intake, heads, cam, headers and full exhaust system. Would like to improve stopping with Brembo calipers and rotors. I'm looking and will continue to search the site. While I'm looking, has anyone 'done' a like conversion...any thoughts/comments to offer? THANKS in advance for any assistance/suggestions you might have to offer...much appreciated.

Search for 'CTS-V brake' on this forum, and you should find a wealth of information. While it's not the only way, it's a popular way, and gets you about as good as it gets.

There are more threads than just that 1 but basically any GM RWD brembo setup will bolt onto our PPV but may need some different bolts depends on the initial application. They used 4 and 6 pot calipers for the fronts, 4 on rears. Rotors have to match also can't reuse any PPV stuff except the brake hoses and bolts. smaller ones will clear the stock wheels larger need 19" or bigger.
