What? If you look at the original post using OC Kid's numbers, the weight savings is reportedly 24.6 pounds. BUT, these numbers are incorrect as he used a bathroom scale (no disrespect OC Kid).

I re-weighed the OEM brakes. I then posted the numbers according to what OC Kid had weighed for the Brembos. I'm not sure we have accurate numbers for that either. But, for the numbers we have now, BBK will save you about 3.5 pounds TOTAL for Brembo and if you use Stoptech you will save about 2.3 pounds TOTAL. The numbers I have on the Stoptech are accurate down to the hundredths of a pound. See this post here.
