The Wilwood are my first choice as of right now... The price is decent for a complete kit... Not to crazy about the caliper color but some G2 paint can fix that

Willwood is a very good BBK in my opinion. I know a lot of old school hot rodders/street rods that use them. Even seen them on a few HorspowerTV builds. If i had $1000 sittin around i would grab a set

Just looking out for U... I can B your crash test dummy.
For real though. I go to Fontana Speedway, Willow Springs, and Button Willow helping my boy work on his race car. Out on the track u see alot of guys running with Wilwoods. And if your pick up Grass Roots Motorsports Magazine, or Kit Car u see them used alot also. Good product, just not as well known as Brembo, or Alcoa. But they have been in motorsport racing since the 70's. And for the price u can't beat the performance. I would go with a slotted Rotor option or slotted and drilled if you like the look of crossdrilled over just a drilled rotor. When u apply the brakes and the pad contacts the rotor, a layer of gas builds up between the rotor and pad. The slots vent the gas off the rotor letting the pads stay in contact with the rotor surface for better bite.

If Im not mistaken, if u go with the six-pots it opens up your color options to red, blue, or gloss black.
