Default Brake rotor, pads & lines recommendations needed!

I need to replace the braking system on my 86' 944 na. I am wanting to use Brembo sport cross drilled rotors (f & r) but can not find them. All I see are the big brake conversions, which is not what I wanna do. If Brembo does not make these for my car can you all recommend something that is sport related or the most popular that you all use? I am also looking at using Stop-Tech stainless brake lines as well. What do you think? I am not sure about the pads yet?? My main use of the car is a daily driver but I want a little bit of an upgrade without going broke to do it.

Absolutely no need to put on cross drilled rotor. The cross drilled rotor was designed for weight savings, not for cooling, and it just for some reason just stuck around thinking it was for cooling purposes. I run a standard rotor on my 944 turbo race car with good results. I think the S/S lines are a good idea, but other than that, I would stick with a stock setup. The problem with upgrading pads to more of a street/track pad is that you will have to deal with some brake squeal and most aren't comfortable with that.
