Let me rephrase that - I can't see SH!$, let alone rotors or anything.

i.e. bad picture to use.

If I understand this correctly, the brackets for the front will only fit the E1 (smaller) caliper?

War, will I need new (to me) E1 calipers, or calipers and brackets as well to even fit to your adapter?

The reason I ask, is that I have E0 calipers.

TIA

Seeing as all Contour knuckles are identical, I DOUBT that the bracket that is going to be used on the E1 SVT calipers would NEED be different to work on E0 SVT calipers. Hence I think the kit will work for ALL SVT's, E0 and E1.

Bump.

I'm ordering brakes next week, so I guess I'm out for the full kit. I might upgrade the rears with this kit later, if the option is available.

This upgrade(with baer replacement FSVT rotors) should be sufficient for a Turbo 3L right?
