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.

As much as I would like to do them I would just do them Black and they really wouldn't change much. Maybe in the future but for now its to much work. I actually had to remove the Strut tower brace to remove and install the manifold. Luckily I was able to get to the Bolts and flange nut on the brace without having the remove the tires.

Just realized I never posted Pictures of my paint correction so figured I would post them up now. I used all Adam's products and think I did a great job for my first time around. Three are still some smaller scratches but most are now gone,

Here's a before:




And now after:






These are after the sealant, glaze and wax
