Another brake thread

Ok so as you all know I posted a thread about a braking issue. I'm thinking it's time to take care of this, the car brakes nicely under daily city driving but anything higher speed it's not smooth.

I'm thinking of front and rear pads and new rotors.

Pads: I get a ton of brake dust now and it's annoying, style 68s are
Not easy to clean either. This is going to be a spirited driving daily with occasional autox days.

Rotors: not sure what to do here, I hear slotted an drilled, slotted and or drilled but am not sure which to go with and why/why not.

Lines and fluid: are stainless steel lines going to help my car brake better? Are they easy to replace? This will be my first brake DIY

I want the best bang for the buck braking performance without a BBK

I've been warned that certain pads and rotor combinations will actually brake worse unless you are slamming on your brakes to get them to
Bite but whatever help would be nice as well as vendors and pricing.
