    have you checked out www.cadillacpower.com/forum/ ?

    iirc, shiftless (the mod over there) had talked of propane. however I'm not sure if anyone over there has posted up on whether or not he's actually running propane yet.

    What are you looking for in rear calipers? Are you thinking of wilwoods or something similar, or?

    Those are going to be tough if the stock bracket doesn't work. I'd suggest looking elsewhere for calipers.

    Why do you want a caliper with such a large piston area? Unless the fronts are absolutely huge or you're running two of the GM calipers per wheel you probably won't be able to get the system to balance very well.
