Love my Wilwood kit too, but I didn't go all out, only picked up the 4-piston version on the 12.2 rotors.
It seems great for my level of courage behind the wheel & no tracks nearby.
Which version did you get?

Forged Dynalite 12.19 inch kit with BP 10 pads. They're just perfect for lively street driving.
It' just another enhancement to a fun and wonderful car. The list "so far" includes Ohlins coilovers, larger sway bars, lightweight 949 rims, nitro nt5 235/40 zr17, v4 intake, reflashed ecm and custom exhaust.
Next will be the larger intercooler and ecm next level reflash.

I felt the oem brakes were fading under heavy braking. Larger rotor Wilwood ,fronts only, definitively made a significant impact on improving the heavy braking issue.

The Abarths at the Bondurant Trackside school have standard 124 Spider brakes. Many of the maneuvers that are taught in the class involve heavy breaking. No issues whatsoever!

Did a couple of mods, GFB, EuroCompulsion ECU clone, muffler delete, upgraded intake....still don't feel the need for better brakes....maybe later...but it stops just fine right now...

I had them installed as well and I love the solid feel. The stock brakes at Bondurant were good, but felt like marshmallows in comparison. The Wilwoods feel closer to the big brakes & rotors I had on my Corvette.

LBJ, I remember you writing about the Wilwoods earlier this year. What did you do about the rear brakes?
