Any way to post photos from my phone? I took a bunch of photos of the installation but can't find the paperclip icon to upload them.

Braking performance seems great so far, while doing the break in procedure (driving to 40mph then hard braking to 10 without stopping, repeating quickly 5 times) my girlfriend said I was trying to give her whiplash lol. But I have just driven twice back and forth to work with no hard braking so can't comment on the performance too much yet.

Here is the 2004 single caliper vs. the 2006 dual caliper.

I don't believe your pics attached


Update: Not sure what happened last night, the pics did not load for me. But they are there now. Looks good! Curious when you get this out on the road, what your opinion is of the braking with the dual piston set up. And the red will help make the calipers pop from behind the rim.

Braking is not remarkably better than before, and with the ceramic pads they need to warm up a little before they brake well, early in the morning driving to work the first stop sign at the end of the street it's slow to stop, but within a few minutes of braking they are warmed up and stop fine. The main advantage of these is not fading under high performance use, but unfortunately I have not been able to test them like this yet.
