Exactly... they just don't do performance parts on a regular basis so you it's a crap shoot on the outcome. I have shops and people I trust and know they do this stuff on a daily basis.

My question is, I see 16" Welds but no disclaimer that small brakes need to accompany this purchase. I don't think one can be done without the other and I guarantee the dealer isn't going to know.

I don't see an * or something that says small brakes are needed for the 16" Welds.

Also, for ARH, I don't see where an Engine calibration comes with header install. At a minimum they would need to take care of the CEL.

I would like to know about those 16 inch Weld drag rims. I believe they would not fit over the stock ZL1 rear brakes???
I wish they would, I fully intend on drag racing my car if it ever arrives.

They sell a brake kit designed to work with 15 or 16" wheels. You would need that.

Yeah I figured. I would go with a Weld package from Carlyle Racing then. I don’t wanna be doing any brake swaps.

A brake kit is part of the Carlyle package. GM totally missed the boat on this 16" package since there are basically no tire selection for it.
