Ok heres a question for the break gurus: I'm under the impression we have 11 inch front rotors correct? If not please correct me. So would 11 inch two piston front calipers + slotted fronts and rears with performance pads be too much breaking power? Or would the stock single piston calipers with slotted rotors and performance pads be enough? Thanks in advance.

It's not piston qty, it's piston area. If ONE is equal to TWO there will be no difference. Or SIX, or FOUR, whatever. Adding more area gives more clamping but comes at the expense of pedal feel and travel. Softer and longer.

Few options exist for cars to "just put on" a muli piston caliper that will really change things. Larger rotors are by far the preferred means of change. More mass, improved cooling, more leverage. Leaving calipers and mc's alone.

^^^ Ok hasn't it been proven though that more rotational mass reduces horse power, granted it lightens up the car? But good point. I'll have to look at the options for bbks.
