I went with the wilwood manual system with 6 piston large rotor in the front and 4 piston 12Ē rotor in the rear( heidts IRS). Got wilwood to spec the masters for bore size and calipers to ensure I got it right the first time, car weighs 4,000 lbs and stops like it should. It is manual so be prepared to put some real effort into locking up the brakes if that how you judge stopping power.Tires are 255/40 and 315/35 so lots of rubber for contact.It is a cleaner look with just 2 masters on the firewall but under the dash requires you to get quite creative.Sorry I donít have a better pic but this is what I ended up with.
