That's what I've heard and all the reviews on AM sound like they're pretty great with a good street bite, little to no dust, and extremely quiet which is all what I'm going for.

Tell that much of a difference?

I wish I had enough money to get a whole drilled and slotted brake conversion but I don't have $2k laying around if I did I don't think I would use it on brakes lmao!

I live in an area where I do a lot of starting and stopping and lots of hills so my brakes get used A LOT!

then you'll appreciate never having to worry about your break lines over heating and failing.

True that. I don't know too much about the brake lines till you said something about them and I looked them up. How is install?

Super simple...in fact I have a write up on here with pics. I believe I stickied it in the pre-2005 v6 section. Feel free to check it out. It'll apply to your car
