SRT Brembo install on RT

So with my new found power I'd like to upgrade the brakes, it sucks going fast and not being able to slow down! Yeah it would be nice to score a big brake kit from Baer but I'm on a budget here! 

So I was thinking of trying to find a wrecked SRT for donor brakes. I'll buy some aftermarket rotors and pads, also upgrade to SS brake lines...

my questions;

1) my RT is a 2013, do I need to source a 392 brake kit or can I do the 6.1..which would be more or if compatible 

2) What all do I need to get to make the swap, can I just do calipers and bolt on and go? Spindles, knuckles?

3) While I'm jerking stuff off, of possible would it be beneficial to grab the front and rear sway bars ( if a scat pak, how about the shocks and springs?) 

**I know my aftermarket wheels will clear, already checked that out! I've already found a few donors but it would seem they are coated in gold, in other words it may be more cost effective to invest in a big brake kit...people want a lot of jack for wrecked, dogged SRTs and Scats...so I may end up just buying SS line and better pads, calling it a day until I can fund a serious kit.

***With that said, I'll say from what I can tell the stock brakes aren't bad, are they AMG brakes? Or Mercedes provided at least?

Come on Dodge, the SS Camaro comes with Brembos and so does the Mustang GT! Why is the RT the red headed stepchild of Mopars line up? Motor Trend didn't even do a review on a regular RT, it's always a Scat or SRT...oh yeah, it can't compete with the others...well not stock!!

**My plans for increasing handling is front strut brace, and full length subframe connectors. Going to hold off on lowering springs until I'm sure I can find some that don't effect ride quality and gaff up steering angles ( wear out tires ). Coil overs, from what I've heard repeatedly decrease ride quality a lot and also make a lot of noise...anyone have first hand want to voice thier experience...please!

Thanks in advance for the info!

All I know is you have to basically have the front end for a srt to bolt on the Brembos from what I gather

Knuckles control arms ect

What did speedy do? He has videos I thought on doing Baer breaks on his d car?

Yeah I'm pretty sure he bought a new full kit specifically for the RT from Baer...didn't want to invest that much into it..but I may be SOL with the "cheap" way out!

Then it's whatever rotors and pads for an SRT that you choose, i also got these from Rock Auto:

Thanks for the info on the s/s break lines

OBTW - if you can find the Daytona rear caliper bracket you can put the big rotors on the rear. 

Also, I got dimpled and slotted rotors for all 4 corners, with pads and free shipping from Brake Perfomance for around $400 back when it did my brake upgrade.

Check Cleveland Pick-A-Part, that's who I bought my brembos from. They normally have everything needed (spindles and knuckles) for less than $1500.
