Default F-Body Brakes??

I just got a sweet deal on some LS1 F-Body Calipers. I was planning on using them to do an F-Body brake swap on my GTP. I got to thinking though, would it fit on the Bonnie??

I already ordered the calipers, mounting brackets, new SS brake lines. I still need the 12" rotors, but that will come soon.

My question is, is this impossible on the Bonnie, or should I just stick to the GTP with this?? I would rather have the stronger brakes on the Bonnie.

its more or less been discussed before, i brought it up when i put 12 inch rotors on my Intrigue, but I didnt go with the F-body calipers because my stock wheels wont handle them i dont think.
