inexpensive bbk?

what is a good, inexpensive bbk for street use? I'm mainly doing it for the looks. 6+ pot would be great. looking to keep it between 2-3k. will go over that budget if it's really worth it.

Exactly! Looking to do this.

If it's mainly for looks and no track duty, just do the fronts. Just change brake pads on all 4 corners with the install with the same kind.
