it took us about 3 hours

You'll also need a 10mm allen key to swap the carriers.

Stonger lines. Replaces the standard rubber hoses, makes the pedal feel stronger, less risk of bursting, need the extra tightness of the braided lines as the V6 caliper is larger and a lot more fluid get moved along the lines!

My V6 front end with 16"s

not that much more space between the wheel & the caliper on your 16's compared to my 15's
