    What are your goals? Is this a street car only?

    Just the normal Cobra 13" kit is fine for a street driven car. If you want bling bling or plan on driving on the track the Brembo kit is the way to go but you may require 18" wheels.

    Not a fan of the +1 rear Baer kit. It's still a 1/2" thick solid rotor and doesn't really offer much in terms of fae-resistance. I consider the Cobra 11.65" rear kit to be a better rear brakes kit than the 13" baer +1 rear kit.

    +1, very true. i didnt even think about that when i posted. I have the cobra/mach 13" front kit and im very happy with it. Make sure you get some stainless lines and use good fluid

    i plan on using it on the road 95% of the time, i would like to take it to the track for a weekend here n there. i looked at the brembo cobra r's and there exactly what im looking for. i found them on summit the cheapest for 1200, which is around what i want to spend, but i didnt see the rear brake kit on there, is it suggested to do the rear when you do the front or will the rear kit do fine?

    Here's what i would do for the rear kit

    I don't have a tune on my car, but friends have gotten tuned by a tuner in NH. I forget the name offhand. I can find out if you'd like. He's highly recommended by a lot of guys here and everyone tried to use him.

    Nope. It's good stuff. It will blend with normal brake fluid as well.
