Vt front upgrade for about $900 is standard fare. That's with basically all new stuff so realistically it costs not much more than a proper overhaul of your stock brakes etc.

A really solid road upgrade but not exactly a motorsport option.

I'd be interested to hear of upgrades that fit under 15" steelies.

Do the rx7 calipers go - are they a bolt up or is there an adapter kit?

Go for 4 pot Wilwoods, put 330's up front, and 290's on the rear. Apart from this all you need is some adaptors and new lines.

Did you get quoted $1300 fitted?
