    I’ve come across references to C5 brake conversions in different threads here but I haven’t had any luck finding any guides (the forum search ignores “C5” because its only 2 characters long).

    Can anyone point me to any links that give more details on this? Or experiences with the conversion/performance or alternatives?

    With this set up you will need 16" or larger rims and it involves the same mods to the stock spindles as the c5.

    Goto www.pro-touring.com and register with that forum and you'll find a TON of assistance on this topic.

    I was inquiring about the same not long ago, and that forum has MANY more peeps who believe in updating your car with modern technology.

    Some guys here do it, but it's more informative over there I found. ;) I'm sure you'll find a few threads to peruse if you do a search.

    Where you at in Illinois ?? Close to Chitown ??

    I actually just finished the C5 brake swap today and took it out for a test drive, it's excellent.

    I used the brackets from: http://www.kore3.com/

    Any questions let me know!
