Great to see profess happening on this. Brembo BBks are vehicle and caliper specific for the carriers, but I have seen 3.5" as a measure from center to center of the bracket holes. Not sure which you have so I think you are better off contacting brembo with pictures and asking.

yea that is what i was thinking of doing becaus i know most brembo calipers are universal for most of the kits its just the brackets that are different so i think imma call them sometime this week and ask.

and on a side note the battery is finally dead after 2 years of babying it trying to make it last for 3 years of sitting finally shorted out one of the cells in the batt so it wont even accept a charge now let alone start my car. which really bothers me because ive been starting and letting the car warm up at least 2-3 times a week for the past 2 years. i dont really wanna buy a new one just to have it sit there for another 11 months and possibly die on me before i start driving again.

just bought some tubing and clamps still trying to find the resistors i went to radio shack and home depot neither of them had it and i went to the local parts stores and none of them had it so i might have to buy them online i need 4 x 10w 330 ohm resistors. im goin to check out a few more places but i still have to wait for the new coolant neck and block off plate to come in

@ fubar how reliable are the plug n play ones i dont know if i want to spend 13 bucks per plug plus shipping so im trying to find the resistors locally.

@ psst u need to get on that im still trying to decide which catch can to go with or try to make my own..
