The brakes are a custome e30 kit designed by a Company Called RPI engineering. They are .87" thick. I got them from ROB at Tunerworks. He can be reached at www.tunerworks.com. or give him a ring on 1 - 403- 398- 9832.

Plug for TUNERWORKS. ..... I have been working on my car for over 6 years now and ROB has helped me with parts and excellent advice through the whole build up. They are a great company to deal with and always give top notch service.

The kit is advertised for arround 1400.00 CAD on the RPI web site ( ROB may be able to get you a better deal ( wink wink ) ). I had my pads upgraded to a higher quality pad also.

I am installing the bracks because the car sees alot of track days and is making arround 200hp at the wheels right now. I plan on installing a supercharger ASAP so now I will be set up to stop the car well with the power it will be making

Thanks for all the props guys....

P.S I looked at several different BBK's and found that these seam to be the best bang for the buck.

P.S. P.S .... the quality of the kit is even more inpresive when see first hand. These guys dont monkey arround. I can't wait to get the car back together and try these things out.

i am thinking of buying that kit...simply because i dont have the time to finnish my custom bbk.... where do you buy the replacement rotors from ? do they provide you with a manafacture part number ? or just theirs ? i am worried that rpi will go out of business and the rotors wont be available...

nice kit, none the less... *th-up*
