If you have around stock whp I'd say a replacing your stock brakes with a set of rotors like DBA, pads such as Hawk HP+, DOT4 brake fluid and braided brake lines.

My personal setup is DBA slotted, Hawk HP+, ATE Blue, and C-One brake lines

Best budget setup for abuse would be Centric Cryo rotors and Stoptech street pads.

Contact DBA they make custom Rotor sizes and I love they're 4000 series rotors

You'd be surprised what stock brakes can do
Running Stoptech Street pads, DBA 4000 series rotors, Super Blue ATE DOT4 Fluid, C-One SS Braided lines and my car stops well without being a BBK

If you want slightly bigger you could fit the 295 mm Avensis rotors and calipers. These are plug and play. This is probably the cheapest option.
Same question for you then, does this setup include the rears as well?
Also, would you need a better master cylinder?
And, are they easy to obtain in the us?

-Only fronts
-No need for a better master cylinder, brake stopper would be nice though
-You could buy them from eBay and have them shipped to the US. The Avensis is a pretty common car in Europe, but you have to find the 5x100 295mm version.

Appreciate that Vin. Now if someone can figure out a good factory level upgrade for the rears. Im trying to do my own research into using maybe FRS rears or even TC rears. Im pretty sure TC rears are a direct bolt on since the fronts are the exact same caliper.

Hopefully someone can chime in on this. Or maybe im getting too overzealous and dont necessarily need the rears.

I did not come across a cheap bolt on rear kit yet. Not sure if you actually need one apart from the looks. The slightly bigger fronts combined with good rotors and slots all around generate plenty of braking power
