They're definitely not the most expensive, badass rotors out there but for the function and benefits gained, it's $ well spent.

I run Raybestos R300 performance rotors F&R (P/N 780289PER and 780296PER) http://www.raybestosbrakes.com/magno...ce-rotors.html With Hawk performance LTS pads. (P/N HB558Y.710 and HB555Y.678.) http://www.hawkperformance.com/perfo...ight-truck-SUV Being that since it's inception the JGC has had notoriously under sized brakes, they warp OE rotors and scorch pads quickly and easily causing decreased stopping power and distance, fading pedal, and vibration under braking. I put these brakes on about 5 yrs and 60k miles ago and they are still stopping great with very minimal wear (better than 80% pad wear left and no rotor wear yet) and absolutely no brake noise. If anyone is looking at brakes I obviously recommend giving this setup some consideration."""

Thanks like they say you get what you pay for cause these look amazing! Thanks for the info Kirk!

UPDATE: I am about to order my black 2008 headlights Friday and every paycheck I will save up so in two months my 2008 conversion will finally be done and shipped the paint! I am thinking of a few more projects as well including a dual exhaust under Jeff's supervision with black tips and tow hooks with the help of josh I plan on my car being finished with aesthetics this year and engine as well! Headers are a go this month for my bday

End transmission.

Its a very different engine bro. Find a vid of them doing fly bys or dyno runs and you will hear how different it really is.
