Wilwoods from RPI are okay, and fit under a 15" wheel I think. They have
flex issues under hard braking, and have no external dust seals, so
therefore, they really aren't for "street" use, especially if you are
planning on winter driving the car in the rust/salt belt.

You could definitely fab your own bracketry to fit any caliper if you
have a good machine shop to go to.

Another option is to consider the Outlaw 4000 calipers. Gary K. I think
had a set of these guys on his 4ktq and seemed to enjoy the performance.

Otherwise, good pads are the first step.
