There are 18s that fit the 380mm front kit, which I chose over 355mm kit for heat management. From others on the forums these should be more than adequate.
Gotcha, I guess I'm being hopeful that my stock calipers will do the job. I was able to get a slight bit of fade and my front rotors did get some good surface cracks, but I'm still not ready to give up on the old single pistons just yet. I did feel that the stopping distance was a bit long with the stock brakes and have a hunch that the fronts were doing too much work. I'm sure the stoptech's thow a bit more bias rearward for more overall stopping power.

Do those 380mm's work with the stock 18's?
