I highly doubt the 05 SE calipers are the same, unless they're painted red and are made of aluminum. The brackets for sure won't be the same; they're longer on the GXP given the larger diameter of the rotors.

To get 13" rotors you need to modify your steering knuckle your self there are no kits.

What car do you have, year and trim. Could put that in your signature.

For my '00 bonneville SSEi I put '05 GXP calipers, I needed the calipers, brackets, bolt from brackets to car, and longer hoses. I went aftermarket for rotors and pads.
Got my calipers and brackets from car-part.com
