Default Brake rotors

Does anyone know what size the front brake rotors are on an 06 SRT8 Magnum? It has the police package. Two piston calipers.

Which is it? You either have an SRT8 or you have a police package. SRT performance brakes (Brembos) are very different than police brakes (same fronts as R/T, different rears). As you say you have two piston fronts, you do NOT have SRT brakes.

I have a 2006 SRT8 Magnum. The front calipers are two piston. The last time I replaced the front brakes and rotors I got the parts from NAPA. It was a kit. The box said the brakes and rotors were for emergency vehicles. Kit is no longer available from NAPA. The rotors were 14". What is the correct size rotor, 13.6" or 14"? Obviously from the reply I got I do not have the police package. That helps.

Again. If you have an actual SRT Magnum, you do not have two piston front calipers. Stock front calipers for that car are FOUR PISTON BREMBOS. ALL stock SRT 300, Charger, Challenger & Magnum through 2014 (08 for the wagon) have four piston Brembos up front. The confusion here is that you don't seem to definitively know what you have. Do you have any pics, specifically of the brakes? Even through the wheel would be helpful.

For example, stock four piston Brembo from a Charger:

I guess our terminology for brake calipers are different. I have Brembo brakes. There are four pistons total. The rotors are 14.2". The kits are no longer available from NAPA but you can still get everything you need separately. Thanks for your help.

Well, my terminology is what the factory uses lol (they ARE four piston, which you can swap for the giant newer six piston calipers). Yours was just....wrong. Glad you found what you needed though.
