CST-V Calipers and Rotors on SRX sport with 20"

So I need new brakes for my SRX and thought why not upgrade to the CTS-V brake setup. Found some OLD threads stating that the rotors are a problem, but nothing new. Has anyone done this? What do I need to do it?

Cone, I remember you posted that pic of your Eclipse? Is your the gst or gsx? Sorry if i guessed the wrong car entirely.

To add on my experience with Big Brake Kits, I did a NSX BBK conversion in my old Honda Prelude. Compared to those tiny little honda brakes that made my SRX stock brakes look like bbk's, I couldn't tell a difference in everyday driving. I don't do any autox so if there was any benefit there, it wouldn't have matter.
It's a Talon lol

I have no issue with people doing it for bling, just don't lead people to believe they are going to stop like a race car, bling is cool. I did the BBK for a challenge (like I need another) and just too look cool, I told myself I needed it so my wife would be safe when towing in the mountains and I could get the pads I wanted, all crap, all true but all crap lol

I did the research as well to make sure the bias and pressure would be ok and not cause any under steer or lock up issues before I did it, I also machined some of the parts myself and took some risks buying stuff I had no idea would work, I also have to overbuild everything so I went the extra kilometer and made sure it was done really well and safe.

Companies are in the market to make money and sell parts, I just wish they would be upfront and say hey this may not help on the street to stop you but dude it will look awesome.

Racing is a whole different game, brake once is great but over and over again then it gets fun with small brakes.

Props for doing it. About the whole wife thing..LOL ditto
The only reason we have an 09 is because I told her the Tcase was making noise so we should get rid of the 04.
