This brake upgrade gives better stopping performance in everyday driving, aggressive street driving, or all-out track days. The linkages needed can be sourced from the E36 M3 Euro 6 speed cars. It's the repeated hard braking from very high speeds that requires a very special brake pad. We plugged these into one of our Project M3s and saw a linear power increase from mid-range up to rev limit with a smooth idle. Subsequently, there are a few routes that can be taken.
A red light will indicate the top rev during start up. Unlike strictly-street pads, mixed-use pads need some heat in them to work effectively. A software tune is one of the best upgrades you can do to improve the driveability and performance of the car. Borla produces each system to have a deep, sporty tone that doesn't offend or intrude on the cabin. The stock cylinder head and valvetain work great from the factory. By designing for one chassis we're able to focus on what works best in that application - proper fitment and operation without unnecessary adapters, easy-to-use camber and caster adjustments, and an intelligent modular design. With our , we unfortunately succumbed to the latter.
Meaning the performance and handling envelope of this car went higher then before and in its time-period matched up very well with more expensive and more powerful cars being sold.
