Opinions on next mod

I need some opinions on what I should do to my car next. The options are as follows:

1) Cobra brakes on the front with slotted zinc-coated rotors
2) Dyno tune with custom chip

Right now I have a set of the 99+ PBRs (came off SpectorV's car). They stop my little fox ok, but I want the Cobra brakes mainly for looks to fill up the wheels a little more. So option 1 would be mainly just for looks.

On the other hand, my car has been running pig rich ever since I've put it together. I think a good tune could be worth at least a good 15-20 rwhp (I'm not going to list all my mods but their in my garage). Plus I'm interested to see exactly how much power the car's making. The downside is the chip will cost a little more than the brakes and I'll have to drive to either Delk in Nashville or JMS in Mobile to have it done.

So what do you guys think?

Dont waste money on looks and get a tune. Actuall the cost of a complete cobra brake setup will be close to the cost of a tune. I will admitt if you leike keeping your rims clean you will hate filling the rims up with Cobra brakes because it is a PITA to do. Your lightweight stang does not need brakes that big!!!

So anyone have any opinions on Delk Performance vs. JMS??? JMS is a farther drive, but I've heard a lot of good things about them. I really haven't heard all that much about Delk...

Matt has a turbo sixer that I saw run, and he knows what the hell he is doing. He works at Delk.
