Wilwood is great stuff? How has this kit improved pedal feel and stopping power?

Opinions of the brand vary. I searched and searched and the only thing I found was big brake kits. I didn’t want large pistons in a four and six was too much. No company that I found had anything in the range I got.

The shop that did work were the ones who worked with wilwood to put the kit together. I’ve only had them for a week. I like the response I’m getting when pressing the pedal...a slight tap and the car begins to slow. Full Depression of the pedal is a smooth and immediate stop. I don’t know all the technical jargon that goes into these things, but at this point I’m enjoying the upgrade. I would have made the same decision if I had 18s.

If anyone is interested, here is a great read on a thread I started over at Mazdas247 maybe about a year ago. I was speaking with a guy who worked at Ferodo, a German OEM brake supplier for 10-20 years. To conclude, he said that German OEM pads are the most ideal choice because this dusty pad is more gentle on your rotors, effectively cleaning and massaging them as you brake.

@tickerguy, even you may find this an interesting read:
