The master cylinder brace didn't do anything for me other than making the brakes feel firmer
That's all it's really intended to do along with the ss hoses, improve brake feel and responsiveness to some end. It's not going to effect the net stopping power much if at all but damn do they feel good.

Brembos are the best. Especially after a carwash in the winter.

I'm just here to say congratulations, and I am jealous of the drivers' skills and talents.

And I'm here to say, get a darn DP already!

I saw this post. I am very tempted. Can't let a deal like this slip away. But I don't wanna buy it and not use it for like, a few months until I buy an AP and get a tune.

More money more problems...

You don't need a tune. You just need a full send.

Agreed. STi intercooler and some reflective heat tape. Heatsoak in autocross is no beuno. I should also install that Cobb heat shield too while I'm in there.

I know. Would be a shame to wrap it or coat it. But I want to maximize performance and also reject heat. So torn on what to do. I like that nice straw colour stainless gets when it gets hot.

304 isn't terribly resistant to chlorides. One winter in Calgary and it'll be grey and drab.

Just wrap it.
