That is a lot of typing on an iPhone.

I have become friends with the engineer at Roush that developed the TrakPak. Unless you upgrade the entire braking system you should not upgrade the rear calipers. I have Stoptech 6 pistons up front and stock calipers with DBA slotted rotors on the back.

Do the Stoptechs make me stop quicker ... up ... yes and no. If they are cold ... and with the pads I run ... no. When they are warm or even hot ... they are amazing! They don't change the stopping distance as much as you may think but the main thing they do is not fade when lapping for 1/2 hour in the summer on the track. The 6 pistons are overkill for the street and in some cases may not work as good as a factory set up.

Another main component of stopping are the tires. If the tires don't grip ... you wont stop. Sounds simple but it is often overlooked.

Glen made a good point many months ago regarding my set up. He said something like this "I would not want to jump into your car on a cold rainy day and drive to the end of my driveway only to find out the brakes don't work " there is truth in Glen's comment. For the street 4 piston Brembos or Stoptechs are ... almost perfect.

I'm going with the 4 piston stop techs for 2 reasons:
First they are more then good for my setup
Second there in my budget

SO the final decision is a set of Stop Tech 4 piston big brake system with 2 piece zinc plated 14" rotors (as long as they clear) with stainless lines.
I'm also going to get a set of stop tech zinc plated factory replacement rotors for the rear both of which will be power slot and not cross drilled.
