I have the stainless steele brakes 4 lug disk brake conversion, it took around 6 hours to install, and together with the SVO 73mm front calipers with ceramic pads, and stainless braided brake lines I dont have any worries about not stopping now.
it probably decreased my stopping distances by 50 feet.
and now I can lock up all 4 wheels, where before when I jammed the brakes HARD it would only slow it a bit, not locking up any wheel.

the brake upgrades cost me:
$900-rear disk conversion
$120-braided brake lines
$40-svo calipers
$80-front ceramic pads

replacement parts for the rear are the same from a thunderbird S/C
and the front is for a 84-86 SVO stang.

braided lines flex nearly as much as rubber lines, do it right and bend steel lines, braided are only good for areas impracticle for bending steel line

How can you have solid lines to the caliper? Hmmm
