Looks like a huge brake kit, should work well and provide plenty of overkill stopping power. Requiring 18" wheels kinda limits the application of the kit but if it suits you then i say go for it.
I'd shop around some tho, $3300 seems really pricey even for a Brembo kit.

Yeah the price is a deep but it is used by pro's and the brake itself is very good. I've checked everywhere and this seems like the best i just wished they would include rear wheel brakes also with this kit unless they do .

i'm sure the rear big brake kit is seperate.
Another thing to consider with purchasing a big brake kit is the brake pads.
What's the availability of the pads? How do those prices compare to different kits from comparable manufacturers?
Are you considering this kit because it's for Racing? If u want a kit for street use i think you should consider something less expensive.

If you can afford it, by all means get it.
Although i still think that there are less expensive kits that would provide you with adequate braking for your needs.
I found that same brake kit for less at tirerack.com of all places. I know you could probably find it for less with a more extensive search.

Couple of things... I had that kit on my '97 T/A. Stops great but caused my ABS to act weird. I ended up disabling the ABS. Might have been the way the GM ABS worked and might not affect the Z, but I thought I'd give you a heads up. Also, pads and replacement rotor wear surfaces are very expensive. I believe the rotor surfaces were $700/pair and pads were $200. Unless you plan on racing the car, the AP racing or Wilwood kits would probably be much more cost effective and provide all of the stopping power you'll ever need. Now, if you're just buying them for show points... that's a whole different deal.

Where can i get those rotors that come with that kit? I've been looking for them everywhere. I've also been looking for the rear wheel kit of it also.

You can only get them from Brembo, that's why they're so expensive. Also, that $700/pr is just for the wear surface, not the whole rotor. You re-use the hat.

Ah so i need to call them directly to order replacement rotors. Also how often will i need to replace them? And how much is the whole rotor if it is even needed.

Id go with Rotora or Stoptech before i went with brembo and all the components in their kits can be bought and replaced if necessary. If your car isnt going to see track time, dont waste the money, you wont get them hot enough on the street to utilize their potential.
BBKs are great for track use and show us (major points) but for day to day driving, i would just upgrade the rotors,lines, and pads. Youll see a bigger improvement doing that.
