I drive very aggressively, and the stock braking system on my ZX3 feels totally inadequate for stopping. In other words it sucks... I already changed the rotors to powerslot slotted rotors and i have hawk hps braking pads, and i still feel like I want more braking power.

Will upgrading to svt brakes make me stop alot better? And how hard is it to swap components?

it's not too hard to do the swap, though costly. if you really want to up the stopping power, go for the baer brake kits. front kit is about 750, rear kit is about 1150. you'll have to run 17 inch wheels though

I would step up to a Hawk HP+ pad. Beyond that, you will be getting in to racing compounds. Carbotech XP8s would be a step beyond HP+

You might want to think about easing up on your driving on the streets if you are always running out of brakes.
