troy-curt No matter what the HP is, the weight is still the same.
So stopping power would be the same. On the street all you will need is a good quality brake system.

If you don't make mistakes. your not doing anything.

street machine

if it is just a street machine i would just upgrade to good friction material, if you are going to domore than street driving then I would prolly upgrade the fronts to something bigger.

Front Disc Rear Drum Brakes

I have a 76 Monte Carlo with front Disc & Rear Drum brakes. The latest car magazines are big on converting rear drum brakes to disc brakes. If I upgrade to high performance calipers, rotors and pads in the front and high performance shoes in the rear will this be good enough for street driving. My engine produces about 3 times the HP and Tq as the original 305CID. Thanks for the input.
