I know the Owner very well. i have run his kits on all my cars, great deal for upgraded performance. Remember that its cheap because of the rotor not because of the caliper. go for it and you'll never look back.

I tried to get him into being a vendor but didn't go thru. You can also add to that package and add 2 piece rotors as well as a rear kit

Thanks for the input fellas. I'm really looking to buy a bbk setup, and since nar8ta started to part his car out, he listed his stop tech bbk for 3k which is very well priced but I simply didn't have the right amount of funds to purchase it. This is why I am pursuing another alternative route which has brought me to this kit.



TRUST ME nar8ta if I had the funds I'd be knocking at your front door right now bro! Hahaha. With that being said ****, are you still running this same setup on your car now? I need to find an alternative fast because my passenger side Oem caliper is seized...:/

Go with the Wilwood:
-They are serviceable.
-US based
-You are not driving a TT ______

Or cheaper option, rebuilt LS400's

For the price its a good kit. The rotors are one piece which keeps the cost down, a 2 piece has advantages but non that you will notice unless you track your car or do constant 130mph plus stops.
The willwoods are not top of the line but are not garbage either. They are very maintenance friendly.

I have Arizonas on my car at the moment with 2 piece rotors all around. Still have Willwoods as-well. 6 piston front and 4 rear in Powder red.

I posted this because of what we spoke about on the phone. Its all good bro

My rear OEM caliper was frozen as well. I Pick one up at autozone, changed it out and bleed the system. Easy fix or go the Wilwood route.

Wilwood make good brakes. His first big customer was The King ( Ricahrd Petty) that should say enough. They are local to me in Cali. in Camarrilo Send me the money & I can pick the kit up n test it for U if you aren't sure.
U se them alot on muscle cars & street rods now. My buddy has them on his 670hp American Iron AIX mustang. Paste n Check the 4th paragraph down. They go into the history, a little bit.
