Upgrading rear disc's to SVT's

I have rear disks on my 2005 ZX5, and I was wondering what I need to upgrade them to SVT rear disc's?

and here is why.
I have SVT fronts and when I track my car the rear brakes get very hot, hotter than the fronts, I was thinking the bigger rotors would help slow that down a bit. although I am open to suggestions.
Thanks..

They are going to get hotter cause they are non-vented rotors. Are you having braking issues or something?

all you'd need are the rotors and svtf caliper brackets

what pads are you using on the rears?

I assume your racing at Mission? that track is notoriously bad on brakes.
I would keep upgrading to bigger parts.
What club to you track with?

Im with the UBCSCC. we are mostly auto-x, but we'll have 3 track days there this year.

If you can't found any svt rear caliper brackets, checkout http://tceperformanceproducts.com You'll find a 11.75'' rotor kit.
