69 Camaro wilwood brakes

I have a 69 camaro that i bought as a shell and have been getting everything lined out to put it together. I have a big block that i plan on running a high lift cam in so I would like to run manual brakes and would like to know the best options or kit that would do front disc conversion along with rear conversion , wilwoods manual master cylinder and all the hard lines to do so. Ive heard nothing but good about Prodigy so hopefully you can chime in and give me some advice. I plan to run Weld 15" or billet specialties street lite wheels. Not going to be a pro-touring car mainly street and drag strip. Also it is a 12 bolt rear. Does not have to be wilwood but most of there kits look pretty affordable. There is a setup for the fronts on ebay from CPP that is around $485 to $525 with spindles. It seems like stock replacements are between $350-500 so i figured the wilwoods would have to be better than the stock single piston calipers. Thanks

Re: 69 camaro wilwood brakes

I have on my 68 a Wilwood big brake kit, 12.2" drilled/slotted rotors, 4 piston calps with their tandem M/C. This is a manual system (per Wilwood's recommendation) and it works great with very good stopping power. 15" rims are going to limit you as the kit above requires 16" rims. I run 18". See parts of sig for pictures
