    i think you can get it on ebay but you will need a special bracket to accomidate the caliper but no modification to the master cylinder at all, but for the price mentioned i think the bracket comes included...the rotors are some big 12.8 inchers which i think will fit the stock 17s but not all of them...depends on the year of the car the 17s came in

    Nice car! A couple questions,

    Had you ever run HPS pads before?
    What was the difference in braking after the upgrade?
    (Feel, stopping power, fade)

    Thanks, looks like you are ready for the roadcourse with those babies!

    I run the HPS on the street.

    For the track (road course) these pads fade after three laps to become (almost) useless.

    I do swap out the rotors and pads (Hawk HT 14) for the track.
