Default PBR Caliper Interchange?

I have been doing some reading on the GMT900 13" front brake upgrade for the GMT800's. I also found out that PBR makes the stock front calipers. I will be doing this upgrade sometime in the near future (front rotors are rotted now) and had an idea.

Does anyone know if the PBR C5 Corvette aluminum calipers would slide onto the GMT900 bracket? They are meant for a 12.8" rotor on the Vette, so it shouldn't have any problem clamping down on 13" ones. The Vette rotor is .08" thicker so shouldn't have any problem there either. Main thing right now is the spacing of the slide pins in the bracket.

I have the calipers already, so I didn't know if I could use them and shed a couple lbs from the cast iron calipers. Thanks!

Justin

Does anyone have a set of 07 Calipers that could measure the span of the slider pins? I'm just trying to figure out if it might work. Thanks!
