Brake upgrade

Has anyone upgraded brakes on here? I wanna do it but not spend a fortune on the kits, wondering if I could use cobra 13 in rotors n caliper if I got the brackets would they mount up, or I just saw someone selling gt brakes off a 2010, think any of those brackets would mount up?

You could go with drilled and slotted rotors from tirerack.com, they have Brembo drilled front $72 a piece and $100 for rear a piece
But would be well worth it since its Brembo
They also have centri-posi calipers on the website also
All my tire needs I use them for since they're based out of Indiana and I live in ohio

Sorry mispriced the rotors, $180 for a pair

Here's the link to rotors and calipers

i run SS lines, hawk pads, and a fluid swap and it's like a completely different car break wise.

Just out of curiosity, how much do you pay for the SS brake lines?

Also, what fluid did you swap in there, i think i remember you said DOT 5 right?

You can get SS lines for front and rear for ~$150 Russell Performance brand on summitracing.com

I just used brakemotive (ebay company) drilled/slotted rotors and the pads they came with for the past almost 3 years and still haven't had to replace the pads yet works great

I also run David's setup! Works really well and good bang for the buck!
