Same, except for the different pad material.

Copied from Brembo sourced article: Although the size of the fixed aluminum calipers hasn't changed from the Z07, the brake rotors and the friction materials have been enhanced to provide additional track capability to match the increased performance of the vehicle.

The front carbon-ceramic rotor is manufactured with a special heat treatment in order to improve its resistance to the higher thermal load and to increase the heat dissipation under the most demanding track conditions.

The front and rear brake pads are made with new formulations developed under the guidelines of the Brembo R&D Center with the purpose of providing higher stopping power and better pad wear under more demanding and challenging braking conditions. ​

So for the sake of argument if I wanted to change the color of my ZR1 calipers, I could just install Z07 (from Z06) calipers on the ZR1 using the original ZR1 pads and ZR1 rotors on the ZR1 and all is well?

If so I’m guessing I’ll need new caliper bolts for the swap as the ZR1 caliper bolts are torque to yield (TTY)?

Yes, the calipers are listed as the same part numbers for all J57 (carbon ceramic brake) equipped cars. As stated above, the rotors and pads carry a different part number from the GS/Z06 with J57 and the ZR1.
