Performance Friction BBK

I was wondering why there is little info on this kit out there? Is there a special reason for this?

On paper they look very well made and engineered.

I might give them a try. Anybody knows of a vendor here that sells these?

Thanks guys

What do you mean by little info out there? I'm running the PFCs on my e92 M3 and love them!

I'm not sure if any of the forum vendors carry the PFC BBK - PM me if you'd like the name of a vendor that carries the full PFC line (race and street) and will gladly answer your technical questions.

The majority of related BBK threads talk of Stoptech, Brembo and AP...

I can also attest that the PFC BBK is awesome on the track.

Very good and reputable maker of braking systems. They don't do as much general consumer marketing so aren't as well known to the average enthusiast looking at a BBK upgrade, but that shouldn't be taken as an indication of their performance.

Is pad replacement cost higher on the PFC kit? They use 4 pads per caliper right?

Yes, 4 pads/caliper

Street pads ~$250/set

Race pads ~$400/set
