Prices have come down on UFOs (rotors for internal calipers); places
like Impex sell them for under $200 each.  Many people get 100k miles
out of them.


Try to find someone offering free delivery.... they're heavy to ship.

What problem are you trying to solve?

Both my cars have UFOs, and they work great.  I've driven other V8s with
the conversion and find the brakes to be noticeably less capable.  I've
had people with converted V8s drive my car and comment about the
difference in braking feel.  

UFO rotors are available if that is your problem ... yes, they are a bit
on the expensive side, but they last a long time.
