You already have vented... You just need the dual front calipers on your disc set up for it to work better.

The dual calipers allow the brake system to work with lower pressures because there is twice the pad area to do the stopping on the front wheels. So less pressure required / better brake pedal feel and modulation / much longer pad life / lower pad and disc temperatures.

The new calipers the kit uses also have dust boots included for longer seal life and less corrosion - problems which people in the past had with the Wilwood calipers but are now addressed for street and off-road applications.

Combined with the extra thick pads used in the kit - this results in a braking system that should work without any maintenance for a very very long time.

My kit arrived earlier this week.
Looks amazing with high quality parts!
Will be a few weeks before I can start on the swap but am going to start by tin-zinc plating the brackets and then will either clear or black chromate them (if I get lazy I will just paint them after plating) :)

We are still waiting for the discs for our kit. Everything else has arrived but It has been over a month and a half and now we are not getting any reply to our emails?

Is anyone else having problems with delivery after payment?

I know Chris is/was away so that is most likely the cause for delay.
I have had zero issues and great communication.

Are your private messages to him still in your outbox? If so, he hasn't read them yet.

Does anyone have the instructions for install?
I have all the parts but no instructions. Would rather not try to figure it out as I try to install.
Thanks,
Dan

If I get anything I will post it up!
I still find it Extremely Strange that Chris is missing in action! Something is wrong.
If anyone has any information about him can you let us know.
Thanks,

Get a message out to Andre. I think he has something along those lines.

I got it too via email from the same source.
Happy to share with anyone else that may need it!
Thanks - did you get the longer passenger side lines?
I still have to go through everything (parts) now that I have the instructions)
If people want to post install progress pictures and tips, it would be helpful (to all) :)
