Even with a car that has more power, if you are just driving on the roads, I don't see the need to upgrade anything other than to replace the pads as needed.
What mountains are you referring to? I see you live in MO based on your profile.
I grew up in N California and experienced bad brake fade every trip to stinson beach.
