Hey I was thinking of replacing the stock lines. Is it a pain in the ass or is it worth it for the performance aspect? Thanks

It's worth it. A little paint to bleed but not too bad. I've done it several times now.

They can be a pain to bleed,I did mine manually.
Total time for the front end 2 lines from the master was a hour (Galfer)
You will definetly notice a difference,it gives you a solid constant brake under heavy braking.
I used to notice under heavy braking the handle would fade with the stock lines.Maybe due to swelling of the lines.But the stockers looked pretty solid also.
The Galfers ran about $100.00 for 2 lines from the master,custom cut for your model year specific,no excess line flopping around up front.
I bought Galfer greens for the green 06 I own.

HEL's, Motul RBF600 and the Mity vac here. SS braided lines not only look great, they dont flex like the stock rubber lines, definitely a good mod.
