I have the same exact upgrade (from Turner as well) but some reason on your car the rotors seem to be larger

I am planning on getting the Rotora red calipers...what do you think?

It's probably just that the SSRs are a more open design. Re the Rotora calipers, I'm thinking about doing the same thing (undecided on color), although it does eat into the cost savings from the CSL upgrade (vs. a BBK). I can live with the stock calipers for a little while. Plus someone recently posted about another potential option; check out these threads:

Conforti claims 12HP gain and butt dyno seems to confirm it. Definitely smoother acceleration, stronger pull from lower RPM. Not dramatic, but discernible. Increase in rev limit from 7900 to 8100 is a positive.

Are those CF gills?

Can't tell. Look better than black (on topaz) in any case, IMO.
