Depends. What are you going to do with the car? If street driving and occasional track work, pad upgrade is the way to go. Cost effective and really improves brake performance.

Pads are probably the biggest improvement you can make from all I have read the stock calipers are more then adequate for street and limited track duty .My upgrades are based on similar set ups I have had on some of my other cars

I was ready to go to a big break set but Dave told me going to the a Eagle pads would do the trick. My experience has been that the new pads with the stock disks works great. Totally different feel.

I've been very happy with the Redstuff EBC pads. Far better in every way than the stock pads, which are mediocre at best. You really only need to change the front pads.

We have our Stage 1 brake upgrade which includes everything you need to upgrade the brake system, Pads, Rotors, lines and fluid for $650. We install this kit quite a bit and it does a great job. We can include EBC's if you would like on the kit and the EBC's are also available on our site -

Hope that helps,

I installed the Hawk HP Plus pads front and rear, and had to learn a light touch on the pedal. These are definitely a big improvement to braking power. I run Solo II about 6 times a year, and these provide more than enough braking power with the stock rotors and calipers.

Check out the stoptech sport kit, lines, rotors, pads, for $480 or so, IIRC.
