The HPS are highly recommended/reviewed everywhere. I think they are a safe bet and are tried and true. I would go for ss lines and new brake fluid while you are at it. It made a good difference in brake pedal feel for me when I changed that out. I was also considering the MC brace, but didn't want to deal with the PITA install. I figure I will do it somewhere down the road when I am doing something major to my engine and don't have to squeeze the thing in there.
I know it's been beat to death in this thread, but I just thought I would add that my Michelin Pilot Super Sports and custom alignment are probably my favorite modifications so far.
