So since i havent had any mods in a while and since i am also still waiting on my Hawk pads to come in i thought i would give this build thread some life with my recent Adams Purchase. I took the plunge with their spring sale and ordered almost everything i will need to correct my paint and get it looking amazing.

Heres a picture of all of the products. I can't wait till i can get this done. But I will wait for the pollen to be gone before i do it.

So today I was able to get my R1 Rotors and Hawk HPS Pads installed. Took a little over an Hour and a Half form start to finish. I made sure to really heat up the pads once they were in to make sure i had no problems in the future with noise and to make sure they were Burnished well into the rotors. I actually could smell the pads and even saw a little amount of smoke. As of right now with the little bit i have driven i can definitely tell that it stops much quicker and the pedal definitely has a tougher and nicer feel to it. All in all I am very glad that I did this mod and I am much more confident with the breaking of the car now.

Here are some pictures:

Those rotors look GREAT. Adding this to my next round of mods. Regardless how much brake is left on my stock set-up. New rotors and pads. Thanks for the write-ups.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I'm really thinking whenever I get around to doing my rims in black that these rotors will really pop

I have been thinking about something but I like the silver look actually. If I were to paint them I would go with a Silver Ice color. I really like the way silver calipers look behind black wheels. Plus I think if I were to do yellow it would be to much.

Also I went to go and find the paint and primer for my manifold in town and wasn't able to find anything I needed in town so I think i might just save up and go the powder coat route. Still thinking about it since I might do a ported manifold in the future

To Give you a more honest and in depth review I would need to put more miles. Right now I have less than 50 on them and from what I could tell it made a noticeable difference. The car stops much quicker and the pedal has gained some firmness but that could also be because they are new pads. Now on the aesthetic side I love it. The drilled and slotted gives a complete different look and I have gotten a ton of compliments.

The only down side is that I have gotten a tad bit more break dust which was expected. All in all I have about 100 a corner on them which I thought was a good deal. The breaks was something I have been wanting to do for a while and I am glad that I finally got them done. I won't really know how different they are till I get on it try to slow down.

Honestly I haven't driven my Camaro in about month and a half and have only put about 50 miles on the breaks from the install. But with those 50 miles I could tell a better performance. Another forum member installed the same exact setup (kjkjr27) as me and has said he also has felt an improvement over the stock breaking performance. Maybe you can ask him for a better review since I haven't driven my Camaro much

Well I got my manifold project done and installed. Have to say I think it came out pretty good for using high heat spray paint. Here are some pictures but once the weather gets better I will try and get some better ones. I do have to give credit to KJKJR27 for the inspiration on the colors to use.
