What discs and pads for a 9GT

Going to get the calipers refurbished on my EVO 9 next year and whilst Iím at it would like to fit new disks and pads all round.
What do people recommend? The car is running around 430hp. Thanks

Depends what you use car for and what you need them to handle abuse wise ?

Discs wise most are decent enough its the pads where the performance comes from

Some may not agree (may think it's still overkill) but at your power level I'd suggest going to 2-piece discs; PF or Girodisc seem the most popular, and then pads...everyone will have different opinions depending on the balance between stopping power (related to use as per Ian's comments), noise level and dust they produce...

Personally on my 9 I have the PF Z.11 pads with the PF 2-piece discs and they're great for fast road and occasional track. More aggressive pads that I've tried (and also liked) are the carbotech XP8's which have better stopping power but do come with more dust and squeal...XP10's supposedly have less but not tried those yet (though have some to put on my Alcons for whenever I get around to have them fitted).

Also don't forget braided lines (HEL / Goodridge) and good fluid if you don't have them already (RBF600 or Castrol SRF are considered top tier fluids I believe - I use the former).

Cheers guys, car is road use only ad definitely don’t want any pads that squeal or give off huge amounts of dust.
