Great thanks Nape!





This is Summit's list of Wilwood FSLi calipers that go with a 1.25" wide rotor: http://www.summitracing.com/search/brand/w...in?autoview=SKU

The only choice you will have to make is the piston size.

For anyone who doesn't want to do all the calculations, 1 5/8" (1.625") pistons work great for 13" rotors on the stock master cylinder and I've heard that they do well with 12.25" rotors as well. Using a smaller piston gives better modulation then 1 3/4" pistons that most NASCAR/circle track cars run.

I just discovered this, those brackets are awesome! I'm interested but in researching the cost i can't find the SL4i calipers. I found the SL4R calipers but they are twice the price you talk about in the OP. I like to know exactly what I'm diving into before I leap.

Could you please update the info?

I have an 01 SS donor car I've been planning to use the brakes from after i complete the LS1/T56 swap but I like your brackets much better.

Thank you in advance

There wasn't enough demand for the brackets. They were never produced, to my knowledge.

2 sets were made, one set is on my car and the other set is accounted for. I might have some of the "development" brackets still, not sure on quality would have to check if you are interested.

Calipers here: http://m.summitracing.com/parts/wil-120-11132. Currently $160ea

My brother-in-law did the machine work and he recently changed jobs. Not sure if the cnc files still exists or he's interested in making any more of these or not. Probably not.

I didn't realize this product never got off the ground. Too bad, best swap bracket i've seen or heard about. I can see how the specific fitment might have been a hinderance. If it were for LS1 f-body brake swap (since i already have the donor car) I'd be like "shut up and take my money" lol.

Stan, your brackets greatly appeal to me and i'd love to have some like that in my thirdgen but I'm a ways from my brake swap. Thanks for getting back to me.

With a HUGE HUGE HUGE hat tip to Stan (StanIROCz) I finally have put all the BCBK info on my website. Another hat tip to Gary (WDMS, local CMC racer) who helped out a lot as well!

I just upgraded our WRL car to these for our recent event at Daytona and DAMN they are nice.

LOTS OF PICTURES and weights and such.

Enjoy!

Guys, if any of you are looking for these wilwood calipers, I have 3 of them I can sell for cheap. Two used for 5 seasons on my CMC car, and one brand new one I kept as a spare. I also have the piston seal kit for them, so you can pop those in and they're as good as new. I think I may also have some spare bleeders for them as well:

Figure a new caliper runs $175, sell all three and the spares/bits for $250

Pranov, looks like your calipers are for a 1.1 rotor, C5 is 1.25 thick.
