I keep finding bits a pieces of info.
Maybe someone could direct me to some complete details and parts list to up size my brakes,My II goes like hell,but when it comes to slowing down there just isn't enough there to do it to easy.
I had A newer(90s) stang with a nice graphics kit on it,come up behind me,he tried to stuff me in the slow lane,I let him get to my nose and then I let him it.We went at it for about a quater mile,He was two cars behindI was about 130mph(guess).Anyway I was at my exit and when I got to the end of it.My brakes were hurting I almost didn't make it.They had to be glowing.

You must have a manual transmission?

I've been through the hot brakes bit once or twice...totally faded on me a couple time too. The results are cracked/blue rotors.

The front brake stuff using Heidt's adapters, Granada rotors and GM calipers is here:
