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.
Thanks for reminding me this Badfish. I fixed the original post with your numbers for the stock and Stoptech weights. For the Stoptechs, I get 8.6 lbs savings for all 4 corners. I erased OC Kid's Brembo numbers since his scale seems to have been off. Now, I need accurate weight figures for the Brembos and cost figures/reference/link for your Stoptechs.
