Brakezzz

You are probably going to hate that clutch for a daily driver to be honest. Also the MSD was not worth the motney either. With what you have so far, stock brakes are fine. Stay away from slotted and drilled as they tend to crack, go with one or the other. Most people use a rotor of choice and EBC reds. Yellows will likely not get hot enough in regular traffic and you actually may reduce braking power using them as they require more use to be effective. I have used power slot and they worked well for road use.

I would also go with a 17% pulley over the 15%. I had a 15 and upgraded a few years ago and it is much better with more power down in the lower range.
