I've just seen one Brembo 8 piston setup and have got only one photo of it, so it probably won't help you much. This is the CTS-V that Predator Performance built and it was tight quarters in their dyno room when I took the photo.

i just dont think its necessary unless your seriously autocrossing this car every weekend. Everyone that has driven my car is shocked at how responsive the brakes are.

Well if its already been spent then a maggie i will not get...

I have given every mod serious consideration.
-The Intake manifold was for extra breathing power since its so hot here.
-The heads to compliment the intake and to also shave off a few pounds.
-Yella terra rocker arms, same weight as stock and they help reduce friction which gives you that little edge.
-GMPP lifters for when i feel like revvin the crap out of the car i can
-The GMPP sway bars keep me level and planted
-The BMR Strut tower for more ridgidness in the chassis
-The NELS rear strut brace for the same
-The BMR trailing arms and toe rods, to give the driveline extra sturdiness for those power take-offs
-The GMPP rear diff cooler to help cool off the diff oil and all the diff to live a longer life
-The Specter Heat extractin hood to keep things cool in the engine compartment
-Specter Rear CF trunk Lid weight shavin
-Specter Spoiler, for better handlin and cosmetics
-The High capacity Rad to keep her runnin cooler
-The Added Oil Cooler to do the same as above
-The LS7 Clutch for the simple reason that you dont waste power turnin the heavy stock one...
-The full set of two piece 14" cross drilled or slotted rotors, to shave off weight and keep the bearings from premature wear due to heat
-The Brembo 8 piston calipers, to put my bros Z06 to shame...

I will never out accelerate him nor keep up with him at speeds over 160mph, but i can make him sweat the whole way upto and around then...

Price of Brand new 2005 V with four years warranty startin 14th feb 2008 $46,000
Price of all mods till today $35,000
Price of Labor to install all above mentioned mods $4,000
Misc items that didnt make the list $1000
Full coverage INSURANCE for one year $2,000
Total spent as of today $92,000.00 (price does not include shippin nor customs charges)

So the next time you feel you got stiffed a few dollars think of what i just spent...
