You'll love them.. Brakes were my best upgrade. Let's me hang with much more powerful cars on the track.

I started looking at the directions for the rear brakes and found a problem: The directions are describing the install of StopTech ST-45's -- but I have the ST-20's. I can figure it out for the most part, however the install involves cutting both the dust shield AND shaving part of the caliper bracket mounting holes. Since the St-20 bracket looks a lot different from the ST-45 bracket, I'm going to call StopTech tomorrow and see if they can give me any better info.

*whew* Looks like I don't have to shave the caliper bracket mounting holes! I checked StopTech's site (which is pretty good, IMO) and found the directions for my rear kit. Should take about 30 mins tomorrow to throw on

I've got the 14" kit
  • Front-
    Rotors: Slotted 355mm x 32mm
    Calipers: 4 piston, red
  • Rear-
    Rotors: Slotted 328mm x 28mm
    Calipers: 2 piston, red




Yeah, I&#39;m happy I didn&#39;t have to grind the bracket bolt hole. So you went with the 14" rears as well as the 14" front?</p>



I&#39;m debating taking pictures right now of the brakes on the car since the wheel wells are still really muddy from when I went to Zivman&#39;s place to install the clutch/flywheel. Kinda embarrassed about how it looks . I want to wait until it&#39;s clean.</p>



And speaking of that "mud", Zivman: What the hell is that stuff? It&#39;s like that driveway was wet cement with how hard it&#39;s setup in my wheel wells!

Yeah - I ended up getting the monster kit. Have to modify everything to make it fit
Looks mean as hell though & I can&#39;t wait to get it finally finished so I can
