Did I read that Brembo make brakes to suit an EL GT?

I am about to upgrade my brakes & investigating a 2 piece with hub & 4-pot caliper solution. I think the EL GT is missing Brembo's & this might be an answer.

Can I ask about the Brembo solution?

Thanks nannas_ed, the billy cart spends most of its time at the carwash & is waxed at regular intervals. I always preferred the navy blue to either the red or the green, and I was told (not sure if this is entirely true) there is 1 in black (a prototype I believe)....and have been curious to see an ELGT in black.!!...mmmmmmh

Long time between drinks here, but I have found a Brembo solution for the EL GT.
Actually I found it years ago when I moved to California.

Happened to be a CTS-V track day as a driver at Laguna Seca & got chummy with the onsite Brembo Engineer.
He & I collaborated over a year to find the right solution.
I had to ship an EL GT upright & rotor (which was not at all cheap, that setup is heavy baby) as part of this investment.
Made many-a long road trip to find the exact solution.
But after a lot of money & time invested, we finally found the perfect solution.

And the stopping improvement is well noticeable & worth the investment.

Just thought I'd update & revive this 11y.o. thread - lost, but never forgotten.!!

Sharing some installation pics here.
And yes, the caliper is inverted because I was too dang excited & foamin' at the mouth to notice I had the right caliper on the left wheel.
