Wilwood Disc Brakes has recently introduced a front W6AR upgrade kit specifically for the 1997-2004 C-5, and 2005-present C-6/Z06 Corvette’s running original equipment (OE) Z51 (340mm) rotors that features the latest in big brake performance technology. This track-tested kit, P/N 140-12629, will not only provide better street performance, it makes a huge improvement over the original brakes on the track where consistency counts. This disc brake kit features Wilwood’s Forged W6AR six-piston calipers that work perfectly with the OE master cylinder and ABS functions. The caliper is used with Wilwood “Smart Pad” BP-20 extreme duty dual-purpose street/track pad compound.
The W6AR six-piston calipers are available in red or black powder coating as well as Wilwood’s new “Quick-Silver” nickel finish (additional charge for nickel). This kit will not only allow your Corvette to stop better, it will also provide an appearance enhancement. Additionally, custom caliper colors are available by special order for an additional charge.
To round out the kit are radial mount calipers brackets with alignment shims to assure an accurate and easy bolt-on installation.
Wilwood performance brake kits are loaded with cutting edge technology built on years of domination in world motorsports. Wilwood’s Caliper Upgrade Kits are designed to meet the high performance demands of today’s tire, wheel and suspension technology.
