[V8] Brake Upgrades?

I know that Keith engineered a system that fit under the stock wheels using
the Wilwood Superlite caliper. Also, check out RPI Equipped on line. They
sell the brackets for Big Red conversions, and they have two Wilwood
packages, one for 11" and one for 13". I believe the 11" will work on V8s
that have been converted to the S4 strut set up and will fit under 15"
wheels, but check with RPI to make sure. At $795, the Wilwood package is a
steel in my opinion.
