About those Hawk HP pads, I had an opposite experience. Some years ago, I bought a Wilwood 6 piston brake kit for my TSX. You would think ANY 6 piston caliper would snap your head off but with those Hawk pads, it was not getting the job done. I switched to my tried and true Porterfield R4-S pad and now I got the stopping power I was seeking. These pads are gentle on the rotors, they don't dust anywhere close to stock pads, and they (Porterfields) stop great. BTW, I'm using this compound on my 380 6-pot Brembos now, and wow wee, it's like throwig a boat anchor out the window when you really want to stop.
