$607.95

I've heard not so great things about Stoptech - is this worth it or should someone save up some more for a Brembo?

As someone with both on different cars... I'd wait for the Brembos.

Would you say the porsche retrofits are better or worse than stoptechs (different sizes between the two of course but i mean just in general)

Stoptech: I have yet to find a street pad I like. I've tried... everything that's not low dust
(because all low dust pads suck)
I'm going to be installing a StopTech front BBK when it's time for my Inspection II, so I'll try them out and will soon have an opinion of my own (not comparable to Brembo as I don't own those).

I think by the time u put together a porsche set and installed it on the car, u might as well have gotten an actual bbk. Considering rebuild, repaint,brackets, ss lines and caliper price plus zcp rotors are involved
