C5 front calipers on the rear

I'm doing the C5 Corvette brake swap on my Cutlass. The only thing is I hate how small the rear calipers are so Im going to buy another set of front calipers to use on the rear. I have read about & seen this mod done on Corvettes before but never on a g-body. If anyone have any information on how to do this mod please post links, pics, or info! Thanks!

I built brackets for the Ford 9" in my '47 project that mount C4 front rotors and calipers. It's still a project, so no, I haven't driven it. The only foreseeable problem would be overbalanced braking due to the larger pistons. To address that, I have a dual M/C Wilwood pedal setup with the adjustable crossbar. I know this doesn't help you much, but it has been done...

I would contact kore3 industries. They specialize in corvette brake retrofits and can answer all your questions about the master cylinder you would need as well.
