If I recall CTS-V calipers can work with a little modification. Possibly FC RX7 ones as well.

Just so you know a lot of the 3k guys go from the VR4 calipers to the Evo Brembos and I'm pretty sure they bolt right up. Don't quote me 100 percent on that so if you got the brackets and know someone with an Evo, maybe check bolt location etc.

If properly functioning stock brakes can lock up all fours easily, while trying to send u thru the windshield..... do they suck?
They're doing their job. For a street car at least.
Make sure oem rear calipers and proportioning valve are working properly, and not sabotaging 'front upgrade' efforts.

TON of 'brake upgrade' info on the net.... even on SQC. Enough to give you a headache. ALOT more to it than a front caliper/rotor swap
240sx threads discuss different piston size in new wilwoods, for stock master cyl vs used Z vs brembo vs new $150 CTS calipers etc
Lotsa bigger rotor options.... pedal lever ratio..... why not to use an adj prop valve.... rear brake upgrade changing bias..... pad compounds
Soooo much to consider

There is no comparison between a Evo brakes and stock brakes.  And yes,  they do suck,

Pretty sure on larger brake system rims would need upgraded to clear larger components.

In my opinion stock brakes work great with porterfield pads during street use.  If your doing road racing they sell an even more aggressive pad but higher piston count and more surface area would probably be better for that application.

Stock brakes are plenty for this car you are right if you have trouble stopping you have other issues. Hey if you wanna upgrade to something better l say why not go to the next step. I guess all depends how you drive your car.

They are no where as good as an Evo system.   To use the Evo rotor you would need larger rims.

Maybe someone could find stopping distance of the two factory cars.

Pretty much all new cars stop on dime. If you go w larger rotors you could swap in the spindles w all the sensors for awesome ABS set up yes it would be lots of work but you would stop straight and not go sideways lol
