Complete Brembro Brake upgrade kit

Pulled teeth on SC to get a guy to explain his Brembo upgrade.

Here is a full kit, you don;t need the brake lines ( not sure what's needed to fit them but lines are easy to get made.
The rotor included needs to have the center bore enlarged ( i think ) or you can get the one from GS already prepped??

You get pin kits, hardware and its ( supposedly bolt right up ) but the poster was not very good at explaining so I am sure there are a few things that need to be adjusted.

$872.79

The rotors won't work without modification. And you'll need steel bushings to center the bolts.

Yeah I said that I thought you need to make the hub bore bigger. I was not sure you needed the bushings but here they are 6679K16 McMaster-Carr

Still an awesome price all things considered. I've been trying to find them at junkyards for a decent price for over a year.

Do share. I've gotten two sets sent to me that we're "confirmed" Brembos, but turned out to be regular cast calipers.

Not as bad as getting a Colbolt trans confirmed LSD sent to the shop and broken down only to find no LSD, and then not taking a return... damn junk yards!

Sorry.
I have to admit that I haven't walked up and Seen the brakes in person, but there's lots of places online that are showing 40-75/side for the brembos (I forget the code off the top of my head)
