I would be more interested in a slotted rotor then a drilled rotor for the street, but i would probably just go with a nice brembo blank and save some money. If you want them for looks its all a matter of personal choice.
+1 on Brembo blanks if you are not tracking or doing extensive 5 hr. mountain runs.
As far as exhaust, I would hit youtube and try to find some clips that show them installed and give you sound bites. There are a lot of choices out there, do your research. Oh wait.... its Johnny, there will be plenty of research. You seem to make consistently educated and tasteful decisions. I am now eager to potentially copy you.
