I recently had the VMP 820 HP kit installed at VMP along with the rest of the stuff now in my signature.  Car is really starting to feel like something I want to hold onto (not that it wasn't before but now that it has a little more personality ... keeper).  Next I am planning on doing either the clutch and a one piece drive shaft or long tube headers.  However, my brakes gave up their first squeak yesterday and the car has over 45K so I think the priority is now probably brake pads and maybe rotors.  If anyone has a suggestion on either the brake pads or the rotors I would love to hear it.  Low dust would be nice for around town since I do drive the car everyday.

I'm starting to think everyone has moved over to the GT500 site but I will keep this build thread alive in case someone stumbles across it on the same journey.  I went with StopTech Cryo treated slotted rotors front and back and hawk ceramic pads.  I ordered the 25 dollar rear brake tool set off Amazon to get the rear calipers compressed,  Easy job.  If you get the Hawk pads you will need to buy the hardware separate if the current clips are not still serviceable (I broke one of the rear pad clips being a perfectionist and trying to get it clean). 

 

VMP Performance is installing DynaTech LT Headers this month.  I am hopping it's not too loud afterward.  I am keeping the stock cat-back.
