OOPS NVM. already answer my question I think
Essentially yes. I "upgraded" from OEM to hawk hps. The stopping distance (I'm guessing) is the exact same. The dust is 99% better than OEM and the initial bite is just a little less than OEM. There's really nothing that beats on street performance of OEM. It's really that good. However the trade off is bad dust like I said before.
Pick your poison but know that OEM will undoubtedly give you what you want from a performance standpoint.
