Because the Dinan kit is merely a re-labeled Brembo kit, it can be assumed that the Brembo kits will also retain the sensor. Stoptech kits use a different but possibly compatible sensor. See their website for more details. I don't know about the use of sensors with other BBKs.

Unfortunately the Dinan and Brembo kits are very expensive and the Stoptech kits are only slightly less expensive.
I saw on UUC Motor Werks which are very cheap price for front and rear kit. On UUC Motor Werks page they offer WILWOOD big brake kit front and rear with 4 pistons calipers for 2100, so I wonder if i can use the brake pad sensors in these. I hope so, I'm going to give UUC call tomorrow and ask them.
