    I want a BBK that is bigger then stock, but that is functional, as I do plan to get out to the track more often next season. I will probably be running 18x7.5s for street and 16" track wheels for the track.

    I am down to choosing the look of my caliper now, now this may not be a big deal for some, but to me, its huge. The DynaPro caliper is smaller by 1.44" in length, but looks more aggresive, where as the Forged SuperLite is more plain. Both of them will be on a 12.2" gas slotted, zinc plated, directional vaned rotor. Both are 4 piston, and I will be poweder coating them either red or blue.

    DynaPro caliper 7.96" in length

    BBK's look so hot on Mini's. I second the 'one that weighs less' statement.

    Yes, I may end up getting the 13" street sport kit from http://www.tceperformanceproducts.com/cgi-bin/brakes/cginews.pl?record=13
    17s aren't that bad for track, and aren't much more expensive then 16" track wheels/tires



    I will most likely be doing the rear kit when they utilize a Wilwood caliper, not the stock caliper. Until then, I will just get slotted rotors, and steel lines for the back.

    forged sounds good to be. light, strong, and i'd imagine less flex which could mean more consistent piston action :dunno:

    I have the Wilwood BBK on my TT. Not only is braking performance greatly improved, but it looks damn sexy.

    I wasn't too concerned about weight, the TT is a pig
