Just got off the phone with SSBC. They recommended going with the 3-piston caliber kit. They are going to discontinue the 4-piston as they protrude outward too much and interfere with most stock wheels, even the 20-inchers. They said the 3-piston provides about 20% more clamping force than the stock caliper and use Corvette brake pads. Having the 14" rotor gives the brake system more leverage to handle the 20-inch wheel/tire combination that can overpower the stock brakes. You have to reuse you existing brakelines so I will likely get ss braided ones to help stiffen the pedal some more. One kicker in the deal is when new rotors are required, they cost about $250 a piece or $175 if you don't need new hats. He suggested Summit Racing and JEGS as the best place to get them. Just plan on 4-week delivery because it takes some time to build them.
