ss brake lines? that's an upgrade? i thought those were just replacement parts?

i have my own cat back exhaust made, so check that one off too

the car has lowering springs but definitely could use the konis.

already have good brake bads too

I think few +HP stickers around the car will do the job.

Upgrade rear rotors to 300mm vented rotors from 9-5 Aero
Upgrade rear calipers to 9-5 Aero calipers.
Brake lines, including the ones to fit the new calipers

then 18T re-wheel, or GT3071
new programming

Yep.

Upgrading the fronts too much (larger rotors and calipers) will make the fronts stop much better than the rears. The front of the car will brake faster than the rear, so when the nose dives down during hard braking, the suddenly lighter rear end will want to kick out to one side.

That kind of oversteer is actually a good thing on the track, but it needs to be manageable and not harsh and sudden.

Upgrading the rears first, and then putting good pads on the fronts is a really nice setup for street or track....and it's way, way cheaper.

I found a set of 9-5 Aero calipers for $118 shipped, from Strandberg Auto. The rotors you can get from eeuroparts, and the new rear lines from GS....
