Can you drill into slotted BBK?

I am getting slotted BBK for a great deal!
I am just wondering if reputable shops are able to cross drill holes to make them "drilled?"

If not.. no big deal - I am really just seeing my options. I'm sure it isn't a cheap alternative either.

Thanks,




EDIT: If you can also help answer this question.. Can you match up pre-existing sensors for the brake pad and brake fluid sensors for our brakes to the BBK? Or, will I be running around with warning lights all day.

Never

Nothing wring with brand new cross drilled but don't ever do that to a non drilled rotor

Never drill rotors. Buy them with slots or cross drilled.
If they come from Brembo Zimmerman, they have drilled and stress relieved along with chamfered the holes.

If you have them drilled later, what happens if the hit one of the vanes?
