Are these QTU calipers? I am running these with a wilwood tandem master cylinder and having problems getting correct pedal pressure. I was told around 1980 GM switched to QTU calipers (quick take up) calipers that require a different master cylinder. Wondering if these require a different master cylinder.... thx

The GM metric calipers from 78-88 have been referred to as quick take up calipers but almost all of the master cylinders we offer have been used successfully with these calipers as long as bore size is correct. For correct operation master bore size should be 1” and up to 1 1/8 with power assist.

Rotor size? Will this fit a 11.1 inch OD rotor? 1inch thick?

The Metric calipers were intended to be used on 10.5" rotors as the stock ones were, however we use these on rotors up to 11.75" on brake kits that we sell. The radius of the pad isn't perfect for the larger rotors but they work just fine.
