Hey Max_well: Try these dudes:

www.kvrperformance.com

They have the slotted rotors for a II. I would not suggest slotted however, there more of a race car thang. The slot is like a knife edge that cuts a layer of pad on each rotation. (you will always have fresh pad). I would sugest crossdrilled rotors with KVR's house brand pad, they work really well. My Mark 7 has them and the braking is amazing!
I deal with KVR everday at the speed shop, they are kool people! You could also send your rotors in to be crossdrilled or slotted if they are in good shape. (get there carbon fiber pads, they rock).

Tried the cross drilled... Several brands in fact... They all had the same result, cracks

Actually had one loose a chunk. It was kinda neat when I nailed the brakes at 145mph

I've checked out a few places that had the slotted rotors, but like you mentioned they are rough on the pads... (But I'll bet not near as rough as my foot is on them)
As much as I really like my ole 4 luggers me thinks it's time to do the Grenade brake upgrade... Got some pieces and parts together so when EFI is all done on the Gran Torino it'll be time to get that little green bullet to stop...

Yes, I was checking those out... For now I am going to stick with the stock rotors.. (found a parts car grenade with new rotors!)
I have faith that I can warp them all to hell in a short time. Then it's time to go shopping...
