    Yeah I upgraded my brakes to slotted/crossdrilled brembos f/r and endless pads this setup works great but if u are hard on the brakes they wear out fast. I heard that aem big rotor upgrade is good does it really help that much or should I go to something like a baer . ap 4 piston running out of the baller status right now if any ones used diffrent setups let me know :blink:

    11" rotors with 4 pot Wilwood calipers that fit under 15" wheels. Much less than the AEM kit.

    AEM blows periods, go with Wilwood, you won't really need rear conversion with this.

    Except you will need to upgrade your rear brakes because if you don't all you are doing is changing brake balance.
    I don't understand why everyone discounts the fastbrakes kit. The wilwood kit won't fit under Honda wheels (15" that is), the fastbrakes kit will. They both use wilwood 4 pot calipers. But you won't get the service from a wilwood dealer that you will from Brian at fastbrakes. I bought a front kit from him about 2 years ago. 6 months after I bought it he updated the mounting hardware and the rotors, he shipped me new hardware and rotors for free. When I discovered a few months later that his updated hardware would not fit the DB knuckle I called him and he was happy to send me some hardware that would. Again for free. My original kit was working fine this whole time.

    fastbrakes makes their own kit.

    Agreed, the AEM kit blows.
