Finally ordered the parts and did the V8 brake upgrade. The rotors are at least an inch larger in diameter. I went with AC Delco professional calipers w/brackets, Raybestos rotors, and Akebono ceramic pads, all from RockAuto.com. I got the Goodridge stainless brake lines from TireRack.com. Rear brakes were changed out with generic ceramic pads from Autozone and Raybestos rotors. I bled it roughly at home, then had my local shop flush the whole system with DOT4 fluid. I have roughly 100 miles on it, and the brakes are bedding in nicely. Much stronger bite and stiffer pedal feel. I figure roughly $500 for the front (including lines), then add $100 for the rear and the fluid flush. My confidence level is much greater now knowing the upgrade is complete. Highly recommended!

I did the BBK upgrade last month and can confirm that 17" rims clear no prob.
Still bedding on the new pads so no update on a bigger bite or not.

I finally did mine and will be working on a write-up with pics in the near future. I will say with the EBC brakes and bigger rotors, stopping performance has increased a great deal! It really feels like the brakes are grabbing, now, rather than just the typical "soft mush" of the factory brakes!
