Placing front brake calipers in the rear

I have a 2017 mustang gt premium with the stock gt front 4 piston calipers and I am planning on buying the ford brembo 6 piston calipers. Is it possible to place the original 4 piston calipers in the rear to replace the stock 1 piston caliper. If so, are there any cons, drawbacks, or complications that can come from placing my old front calipers on my rear wheels,

Custom brackets, at a minimum, will be required. Offset for rotor diameter, and offset from the hub needs to be accounted for. They won't just bolt up. Putting the front brakes on the rear can affect brake bias/balance issues.
