How far-fetched is it to try to do this brake calipers and wheels on 88 Fiero formula

I have seen some camaro guys swap from 2 piston to the older 4 pot CTS-v calipers, and there was an article on one site where they swapped the 2 piston camaro calipers to the newer 6 pot CTS-v calipers and seemed "pretty much" bolt on.
I bought caliper brackets from Purple Reign that uses the 2 piston camaro ls calipers and have thought about trying the 6 pot but the calipers are expensive and 14" rotors are another cost when the 13" or way more than needed. I might go to the 4 pot calipers if find a decent deal on ebay..

I would be concerned with the extra stress on the suspension components and bearing.

you'd probably have to narrow the wheels for them to fit.

I know that this won't get you the fancy calipers but have you considered Fieroguru's 13" brake kit for 88s?

I'm sure that with some patience you can even make some of these calipers work
