Default Help G8 GT Brake upgrade front/rear

Ok so I just purchased a 2009 G8 Gt bone stock. I've been searching this site an a couple others, My head is spinning trying to figure out best/easiest front and rear set up. I would like to put the bigger front and rear brembo or cts or newer Camaro on? what I am really looking for is what I would need to do this as a bolt on without having to modify or drill parts. Is there something that is direct bolt on? I am not worried about what it says on the calipers as I can paint over that. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks' Brian.

Will I need to do anything to brake lines? I'm reading ss lines speed bleeders and cross over tubes or something to that line? Thanks again Brian

Drill out the fronts only. you will also need new caliper bolts. You can buy some at Ace or other hardware/fastener stores - 14mm x 2.0 x 40mm

As for the rotors you can either buy 10-15 Camaro fronts and 2015 Chevy SS rears or just buy front and rear rotors for a 2015 Chevy SS. I just bought a complete 15 SS set of Centric rotors off Rock Auto for my Brembo swap.

You will have to trim the dust shield on the rears as well regardless of what rotors you use.

Thanks for all of the input. I will take the 4 bolts from the Camaro and have them put in the lathe to cut down to 40mm then I will have the right bolt.
