FYI - get any brake fluid on the blue silicone dust seals, and they're toast. The factory ones are not affected by brake fluid.

Yep I was just reading up there instructions and they said that lime 3 times. Don't use brake fluid to lubricant use grease. Not sure I like the sound of that. Our the blue seals that much better or if you use oem seals and Titanium shims that will do.

If you are going to use aftermarket pads like DTC60 or DTC70's I would think you would want also to use titanium backing plates at least on the FRONTS.
I like the design of the oem Brembo vented pistons. Looks like you have more surface touching the brake pad them the Racingbrake piston.

Well I agree totally. The vented pistons SHOULD dissipate heat better and the titanium shims SHOULD keep some of the heat from transferring to the caliper. Stock seals will be less likely to get cooked anyway in this environment I would think.
