It's a 2v. I looked into getting a KB but for the route I took the eaton swap saved me almost $1500

IMO there is no real reason for 13 inch rear brakes unless you road race a lot. 70-80% of braking is on your fronts right so the gains are minimal. Also if you want to run a slick for the track on a lite weight 15 inch weld rim or equiv you can't with a 13" rear rotor. Just my opinion

I agree but I have to have everything matching, like big rotors up front and big rotors in back.

Well maybe look into getting the cobra rear brake kit. I don't think they make it anymore, but eBay craigslist, junkyards, they will have it. It upgrades your rear rotors from 10.5 inches to 11.6 inches. I think the rear rotors are also vented as opposed to being solid like our cars. The caliper I believe is the same, but the bracket is different. Unfortunately I'm not sure if you can buy just the bracket....bump on that last part?

In order to do the rear swap you need to pull the axles out and put the cobra brackets on. Stage 3 Motorsports sells a 13" rear brake kit where you just bolt on the relocation brackets using you gt calipers and new 13" rotors. If you have any questions just ask.. I've swapped the fronts and did some serious research on the backs
