I wouls have saved a lot of money if I had installed my BBK sooner. Also, I feel that I am not using the system at 100% of its capability, so I feel safer.

Before that I went through all the time and money of: Motul brake fluid, track pads (Pagid Yellows, Carbotechs), cooked and replaced my OEM front calipers, added a Cantrell brake cooling kit. The cooling kit meant that the pads last 2 days instead of 1 day. And I felt I was running the OEM brakes at 110%.
It is a big money saver over time!
