I like the painted calipers. Can't see spending 7K for BBK if all you want is the look.

Agreed. I am not tracking the car much so I can't justify 5k worth of after market brakes for a little bit better stopping power. I don't think I can "feel" 5k worth of more stopping power over oem brakes.

You can definitely feel it. Pick up a used set of StopTech in the FS section. You want to be able to stop that beast with the added power.

I don't hate the red calipers.

Install for the G-Power will be complete today (hopefully) after I get off work. I will have to wait for the tune hopefully by Wednesday. I will update post with pix and videos after I am complete. I also have some ACM test pipes on the way. I should have everything installed on the car by the end of the week as long as all goes well.

I would have painted them gloss silver. Looks cleaner. The red is too 1999 old Honda days. Then we went to gold caliper paint then to Endless BBK and Project MU BBK.

Supercharger install almost done. Here are some pictures of my progress. Its been a pain in the ass to put in the fan after putting on that intercooler. I guess I should have waited to install the intercooler as the final step.
