Brake upgrades

Hey all, with the possibility of sounding cheap i was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere to get slotted and drilled rotors for less than $200 a pair ( AM ), also what concerns about buying a cheaper set from ebay ( warping? ) And lastly what would i need to do if i go all in on brakes and get a big brake kit. Thanks again all.

I have the eBay kit and the rotors have been on my car for a year and a half with about 20,000 miles on them with no problems. The pads however were very spongy so I got some ceramic ones from advance auto and now my brakes are amazing

Depends on the big brake kit you go with. I have no experience with the Ebay kits, however drilled and slotted aren't really necessary other than it looks cool. The slots help with heat dissipation but you really don't need that unless you're doing some sort of track day. If you want bigger brakes for a decent price look into Cobra/Mach/Bullitt brakes.

Ah ok. There's a couple different ones like Brembo, Willwood, Baer, and SSBC. Those are all $1000+ kits just for the fronts. Depending on the brand you go with you would need to buy spacers to make your rims fit if the backspacing isn't correct. The Cobras can be found for pretty cheap on Ebay, or Latemodelrestoration.Com has a kit that comes with/performance pads, slotted rotors, and stainless steel lines on top of the calipers and brakes for $700.
Here's a picture of Cobra brakes with 17"rims.
