Be careful on the brake up grade. We've found on our MR2's doing the "brake upgrade" to just the two front rotors actually increased the stoping distance. If you're going to do it right do all four.

They use Willwood and they have great prices.

For my car (91 MR2 Turbo-custom application) 4-Piston all around, 13.5" rotors, new master cylinder, and E-brake cables.... $3,000! 6-piston up front are just a few hundred more.

I'd also look into an AEM Plug-N-Play programable ECU rather than the chip upgrade.

Check these guys out for prices:

While they don't have any parts on their site this is my brothers. I did the work and we use to have a full list:

Send an email for a good hook-up. Tell him I sent you and you'll get a great deal I'm sure.

Anyone have experience with Koni?

I've been reading about some of their complete kits and they seem interesting

I had a 73 Datsun 240Z back in Highschool (1980s 8) ) and put a full Suspension Techniques set up on it, this was a long time before most people had even heard of lowering a car, and the kit came with Konis!

They were awsome. Excelent shocks. I doubt you can buy better.
