    The brakes went from inadequate to adequate. I no longer need to slam the pedal to the floor to stop after a heavy throttle situation. This car is in the 500whp territory now so it needs alot of brake.
    I am also using the Bosch iBooster which is working very well.

    I have thought about implementing ABS but it would be more trouble that it is worth and impossible to setup properly especially as the car has different diameter wheels front and back.

    Looking really great Josh. You've got the wheel/tire fitment and ride height dialed in nicely as well.

    Those rotors up front are absolutely massive compared to stock so hopefully that gives you the extra stopping power you need. I can't remember what brake master/booster setup you are running... Do you have a proportioning valve or anything to dial in the front/rear bias?

    Thanks Mark, means alot.

    I am thinking of a little bit of spacer up front but its purely cosmetic.
    Im running a Gen1 iBooster sourced from a Honda CRV. Still using the stock master cylinder and with slightly larger bore from calipers (57mm vs 54mm) and as a result there is more travel. I modified the pedal linkage to make up for it but ideally I should start considering a bigger master. No proportioning valve yet want to break in the clutch more before I start beating on it and testing the limits of the brake system and dialing it in.

    Cool, I appreciate the additional info. The work that you're putting into these custom brake setups is pretty extensive so it's really interesting to know more about what goes into it.
