Def not worth putting these kind of break on a car unless you are going to track it or you fly from traffic signal to traffic light and need to stop fast.

bbk doesnt really make you stop much faster if any. what it does do is pretty much stop "brake fade" that you get while at a track, from continuasly pushing your breaks.

The stock brakes are plenty capable for track days. That money is better spent on entry fees, DE, tires, etc

This. Consider keeping the very good stock brakes and saving your hard-earned money OP.
