I'll be honest it would be easier to buy an injen. But
3 inch carbon fiber pipe was about 75 to 80 dollars. 3 inch 90 degree connector 50. I bought 2 different carbon fiber panels as originally I was going to build an enclosure over the port where a CAI drops in but opted for a different route. I'm using one of then panels as the holder over that port for the lower portion with a larger zzp filter. I'll try and lay everything out once I'm done with it for sure. And after I file my patent. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

OHHHHHHHHHH lol um yeah pretty sure im under 400..
$70 for a pair of calipers and brackets <debated getting the powder coated ones but that would have been well over the 400>,
$50 For pads
$50 for Dust shields
$85 For Rotors
$15 for the drill bit I didnt have <one of few>
$?? Caliper Bolts I seem to forget about this part.. Hopefully I'll find what I need before Friday.

Current total $270. Though this is only the fronts. I havent decided if Im pad slapping the rear or replaceing pads and rotors

Nice, mine seem to fade under hard braking, thinking of pricing this out and doing it.

Thats why im doing it lol.. ive noticed it a lot since the day I got the car.. I end up in traffic a lot and seem to have to apply more pressure than necessary to slow down and then it finally starts to have effect by which point its more of a sudden stop ...

Oh Pat....

Live and learn buddy.

You know, ZZP has a 12" brake kit for $399.

They have an even bigger 12.6" kit for $499.

Except I dont want the redrilled rotors that I have to get remade whenever I need a set. And although the dual piston set up sounds good I'm familiar with the issues on those calipers.

You'll likely never need new rotors for the rest of the life of the car though.

Drilled rotors do have a tendency to eat brake pads though with the increased friction forces.

I see. I didn't notice they were drilled rotors.

The zzp.ones are redrilled for the cruze lug pattern. Drilled and slotted references the rotor faces themselves.... and yeah I was able to stay under 400 with an encore setup. No one said anything about an upgraded version of the setup with powder coated calipers and drilled rotor faces.. the link I put up.. and still at 401.. lol grief over a buck :p

Updated the antennae. Apparently visual garage isn't that busy because I got mine in about a week.

Looks good! Love the look of the shark fin on my Volt, but Christ the reception sucks with one.
