    lid is the cheapest way to add power.. its what 100 bucks.. why wait till xmas and if u get rotors do not get cheep ones.. they will warp ther fore no added stoping power.. been ther done that.. get power slot or some thing like that and get better pads at the same time and if u want harder faster peddle get lines as well. and headers are a bitch to put on..

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    don't get drilled/slotted, they are for show. Just get some decent priced slotted ones. That's what I would do.

    Awesome advice on the rotors. I about made that mistake. My brakes are getting kinda weak.... Pads are good but rotors are EL WARPO!. Shaking Pulsating crap. So.. My plan after bills, presents etc, LID, then drilled and slotted rotors.. LT.. next maybe. Any more power ideas for Xmas.

    he was saying not to get the drilled/slotted because the cross drilled ones are just for show. Also, there have been instances that I've seen with the cross drilled rotors where they'll develop stress cracks by the holes. I'm sure someone will have pictures of this for you. Slotted FTW.

    back on topic.... I don't get a Christmas bonus because I have a Sh*t job but the parents still like to buy me things so I think I am going to finally get my SFC's and a driveshaft loop.

    Headers & exhaust with the lid. For brakes I'd just do Brembo blanks with hawk pads.

    cheep d/s breaks are BAD they often get stress cracks from the holes.. good d/s are alsome, good ones have holes are drilled pre cast.. wich means that they are stronger then post cast holes. thats why u do not get cheap d/s.. if u dont think its true look it up thats why power slot will never make d/s . i thint it is or was on ther website at one time.. and a matter of fact its in a few of my ASE study books
