Its quite involved but not too difficult. The Ferrari caliper needs a mounting bracket to fit it to the 156 hub, AO member SEARS made my brackets, he has all the sizes etc. Also need the mounting bolts. He might sell you the drawings so you could get them made locally
The pads are the exact same pads as the Brembo GT kit pads at 15mm thickness. Also the same as GTV/GTA calipers but are 15mm instead of 17mm thickness - the upshot of this is the caliper is narrower than the GTA calipers so are a bit easier to get wheels to fit.
Discs are standard 305mm GTV/GTA discs.
Hoses need to be special order with 156 mounting at one end and M10 Banjo fitting at the other for the Ferrari caliper.
I had my hoses made my hosesolutions.co.uk (very efficient) length 38cm (not including the fittings), Alfa 156 at one end where it mounts to the body and M10x1 straight banjo fitting at the other.
Now to wheel fitment.......I had 16" Selespeed wheels and these need minimum 5mm spacers to clear the caliper but you also need to be careful with placement of the wheel weights, 10-15mm would be better. Alfa 156 17" wheels will need spacers too.
17" GTV or GTA wheels fit straight on, also probably 16" GTV would fit straight on too as they are 30mm offset and are used on the GTV with big Brembos
If you get the Ferrari calipers then check they have the anti rattle spring and pad pins
