There’s no denying the fact that the 5th-gen Camaro is a heavy car; not only is it heavy, but it’s also quite powerful; no matter which trim package you choose. With the entry-level car putting out 323 hp for 2015 and the SS delivering as much as 426 hp, you don’t want to skimp out on brakes.
General Motors performed an admirable job developing these cars, but with so much more power left on the table through the aftermarket, the factory binders can only handle so much weight, power and inevitable abuse that their owners can throw at them – even when OEM-Brembo are equipped.
That’s why companies like Pace Performance are currently offering this CTS-V-sourced brake upgrade package for 2010-2015 Camaro V6 and Super Sport models.
Sold as a direct-fit replacement for your stock V6/SS brakes, these improve your stopping power substantially! Learn more from our friends at Pace Performance below!
Pace Performance – Camaro SS Yellow Brembo Front 6-Piston Upgrade Kit
Upgrade the front brakes on your 2010-and-later Camaro SS or V-6 model with the larger brakes from the supercharged CTS-V – including racing-style two-piece, 14.6-inch front rotors and six-piston Brembo aluminum calipers, in yellow with the V logo. This compares with the 12.6-inch rotors/single-piston calipers on V-6 models and 14-inch rotors/four-piston calipers on SS models.
The ZL1 two-piece rotors offer greater resistance to warping and potentially longer rotor life, as well as reduced weight. The design features a separate cast iron rotor brake ring mounted to an aluminum “hat” that attaches the brake assembly to the wheel hub. The hat and brake ring cool at different rates, which helps the rotor dissipate heat more effectively. This racing-style disc design enhances braking performance under track operating conditions. Kit includes two rotors, two calipers and mounting hardware.
NOTE: Requires 20″ wheels for caliper clearance.
