No- the 6 piston Brembos used by FPV and Sprints are 164.8 mm in length.

The pads used in the shockworks 6 piston is 190 mm in length, same pad as used by the Bremo Brembo 6 piston caliper used in the Brembo Grand Turismo series, so a much bigger caliper than the 6 piston caliper Brembo used in the FPV and Sprint Brembo 6 pistons.

The Brembo Grand Turismo of that size is used in the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. So they are not teh same as the Brembo 6 pistons used in FPV/Sprints, but are the same as the monster Brembos used in the Trackhawk.
