Dude, is this a Vtec?? Anyway, a cheap thing to do would be to get the Brembo caliper covers...won't do any good but will make people go like "WHOA, BREMBO!"

Hahaha... this guy is at it again! Dude ur car is not as fast as u think it is.... you already gave us the firgures of it touching 130km/hr in 2nd! and not 1st gear it touches 85! I am definatly not buying that... before getting better brakes get a new speedo or something.You only have minor mods done nothin big like a turbo or somethng so there is no way your car is going that fast in 1st or 2nd gear. No offence meant just giving u a reality check.
As for the brakes i think better brakepads would be a good option.

WTF *** ***!!!!!!!!!!!! 1st gear 85kmph.............even a OHC Vtec hits rev limiter at 46kmph in stock.

85kmph, 1st gear on 1.5exi is unrealistic with the stock ecu as it would mean 210+kmph on 4th at God knows what rpm's. Impossible according to me.

What rating HKS plugs are you using?? and yeah hurricane(never heard actuly:-() cables,,,u mean plug wires?? How much did you spend for all this??
