Re: Caliper Covers

I dont like the look on those covers, seems to wanna be.

I would save better for a big brake kit or paint the oem calipers.

Re: Caliper Covers

Saw some prices on Wilwood calipers 6 pistons were about $350 each and 4 pistons were about $330 each. More pistons and larger rotors does not guarantee shorter braking distances. Two old says Germans dont care if the brakes are noisy as long as they work. Americans dont care if the brakes work as long as they arent noisy. More aggressive pad compound, brake fluid with a high wet boiling point, more cooling to the brakes and tires that aren't baised to off road or low rolling resistance will cut brake distances. Corss drilled and slotted rotors are purdy but again dont guarnatee shorter brake distances jsut a bigger hole in your wallet.
