I was under the impression you wanted the c5/c6 caliper?? Mounting the 13" rotors using the stock 88 calipers is simple, all that is needed is a bracket and a spacer for the bridge of the caliper to make it accept the wider rotor.

C5/C6 calipers swap is very difficult and alot of mods must be made to use them properly ... I did buy those calipers when I had my Widow ... now I have an 88 Formula.

Well now I know what you guys are after I will have to figure out a few things. The 13" rotors he was using that work with the fiero calipers is going to be the fun mystery to solve. Might be too much to ask of guru to share that. Off to ebay and Brakemotive I go.

I'd would say check with ...

2004 subaru sti front rotors 12.84"
or
98 Cobra Mustang Front 13" rotor used a PBR 38x38mm calipers
and
99+ Cobra Mustang Fronts 13" rotor used a PBR 40x40mm calipers

I'd be leaning toward the cobra side ... with 13' a bit of trimming needs to be done to the 88 caliper for it to sit properly ... not a big modification..

I personally want vette calipers, or at least better calipers, over the 88.
The stock ones are garbage when you are putting down more power and especially for track days

I need an upgrade

Those kits definitely look amazing. I need to order a set, I only wish I would have been looking around sooner. I definitely need the front C5 kit. Have you started making the rear C4 kit for an 87 yet? And as DKcustoms stated, I would like a better grade of caliper than an 88 Fiero caliper. I cannot yet drive my car, but I do want to upgrade as I go, and I'm sure that the C5 brakes are a huge improvement over stock.

With the help of a few forum members I think we have narrowed down the correct rotor. won't know for sure until I get my hands on one.

Do you still have any rear bracket kits ready? I bought everything a while back that I need to make an install video except rims/tires. I just pulled the parts out to get ready for the video and realized that I do not have the bracket kit for the rear.
