    Honestly Danny I never had any confidence in them!!!
    there was always doubt in my mind that i was going to be able to stop if i decided to push on a bit!!!!!

    so far the cheap ass Apec pads are alot better and giving alot more confidence in my breaks

    Might look into a few different types of pads so

    looked for boost/vacuum leak, messed around with grills can't decide which one looks better:

    Stock painted satin black:


    or Sport mesh grill?:
