SS lines will improve pedal feel, and brake fluid will exceed the limits of the pad, so little will change, but it's obviously a cheap improvement.

The plates will be either Aluminum or thinner walled stainless steel. Both forms would be fulled anodized. We haven't made a final call on this yet. We're not looking for feedback on which material to use, as customers instantly assume the aluminum setup would be lighter, but it has to be thicker, and there are heat issues to deal with. We'll be making the martial decision based on what is best for this application as we continue to finalize the part.

The idea, just like with the ABS ducts, is that a fortune spent savings onces of weight is not where your money should be spent.
