    Has anyone figured out a way to adapt one of the nicer style calipers to the IRS yet? I have been searching and all I can really find is the MM kit with rotors and everything which I do not want. I am looking for just a bolt on caliper and bracket. Wasn't sure if anyone was able to find anything that works.

    Cant say for certain but I dont think there is one. I'd love to find something to match my 14" 4 piston brembos up front. Think I'm just going to go with the FTBR 13" kit. It uses the factory caliper

    TCE Performance shows an IRS kit on their website that uses a Wilwood FNSL4 4-piston calipers. Don't have any personal experience.

    looks like the same thing that MM offers except they offer a separate parking brake caliper. but OP was asking about a bolt on caliper that keeps the factory rotor.
    not going to lie, if i had wilwood upfront instead of my brembos id probably drop the coin just for the sake of having these. they look great!

    I like that TCE kit but I already have baer 6p front brakes. does anyone know if those willwood calipers and the baer 6p's(or other baer caliper) have the same mounting bracket(spacing/offset)? I have manual brakes and the oem sliding rear brake causes a little extra intial pedal movement. I would be able to eliminate this with fixed calipers in the rear.

    Have the same issue. Baer 6p kit up front and stock in rear. Looking for something for the rear.

    Probably will end up aftermarket rotors and pads and paint the calipers red to match the front.

    I have the wilwood kit from MM the floating setup.

    If your just looking for looks then go whatever but if your looking for performance such as tracking then I would suggest the MM kit. The rotors are 12.8" x 1.25". The TCE kit the rotors are still the stock thickness of .81". You really get a big benefit of cooler rotors when you have the mass to dissipate heat.

    I have the ST40 Stoptech front 332mm size kit with 1.25" thick rotors and the MM wilwood rear. Good setup for track use. 20190715_014733661_iOS.jpg 20190715_015812189_iOS.jpg

    Personally I’ve always hated the look and logo of Wilwood setups. Wish we had another aftermarket alternative.

    Not to mention if you arent running wilwood fronts. That would drive me nuts have to different branded calipers that are visible

    Easy enough to scuff down, paint/powder coat, then custom make any emblem/logo. That is what I did on my Cadillac brembos. I put cobra on mine.

    I'd feel like a real poser if I sanded down the wilwood ones and put on a brembo decal to match my fronts.
    You could always just leave them blank after the color match

    Ha, good call. Never thought about that until you mentioned it. That's been my biggest hold up is that brembo doesn't make a rear caliper for us.
