The Red Rocket was 360WHP at 2700 pounds wet with me in it and had stock SC brakes. I never had a problem with them and could lock up the tires at will, which I figured was good enough for a street car. You don't have to worry about brake fade on the street (at least if you are sane). The 915 was a hoot but too short for that power. It was time for a 930. Now that I have one I find the tranny gear ratios very good with the power level range I am shooting for. Brakes are awesome but way too much for the street. If you ever use 930 brakes to their fullest on the street you're looking at serious jail time.

Want 400WHP? Budget $25K if you plan to go inside and mod a 3.2L engine. The bolt-on go fast parts will cost you $10K of that total. If a shop is doing everything it may be a bit more before all is sorted.
