that would be cool, because I have some 11.3" vr6 rotors in the garage that I could just drill lug holes for. The goodwin site says they run the 11" rotor, which is hopefully the stock corrado rotor.

the 99+ sport brakes get you close...

10.6" F and 10.9" R, IIRC


The 2001+ Sport brakes have a different rear caliper. They have a 1.375" bore instead of the previous 1.25" bore.

hmmm...this might be the way to go, even if I have to run hawk blues. Anyone know if you can get the little metal slider thingies for the pads to slide on? My sister's bf has the brakes and could not find them when he needed them.

I will just run the stock 1.8 rear brakes with a prop valve.

Damn, I never should have sold the wilwoods off my corrado.


Thanks for the links. I don't know if I want the quickchange action and light caliper of the wilwood, or the cheapness of the sport brakes.
