Couple ?s about calipers & chains

First off, I'm ready to buy a 4 piston caliper for my dual caliper set up. I'm somewhat tight on money so I'm going with the cheapest caliper on ebay that I can find. I know I need a 929/954/F4I front right caliper.
My question is, are F4i calipers not as good as the 929/954 calipers? Or are they the same? I found an F4i caliper for cheap but if it sucks compared to the others then I may wait.

The other questions have to do with my chain. I have a 60 tooth sprocket on the way and I need a chain long enough for it. I'm not going to buy a new chain, I'm just adding links. My questions are, Does anyone know about how many links total are used with a 60 tooth? I know with different bikes it may vary, but I just need a ball park estimate.
Also I was told cyclegear may have them but I need to call. Does anyone know of any other places that sell just links and not the whole chain?
Thanks.

P.S.
My goal is to have my bike ready for the Sarasota Throw Down! :YEAH

I can only help ya w/ the chain. I believe you stock rear was a 40 tooth...yeah? If so, then you went up 20 teeth, and I think you stock chain lenth was 108, so I'ld say you need a total of 128 links.

I have a 50 tooth on the bike now. I thought I was only about 110 links now, but I can't remember. I'll have to check when I get off in the morning.
