    uprated pads

    going to be replacing the front and rear pads on my sri turbo in the next week or so. it has grooved and drilled discs front and rear so im going to put some uprated pads on it. anyone give me pointers for what to go for and what to avoid?

    Pllusy as Jiberson has mentioned Red Stuff will do but the majority on here have opted for the EBC Yellow Stuff instead as they tend to be a better performing pad...But the choice is yours!..
    Star Silver SRI Turbo..'Red.Dot Reloaded'..Cybox Precat, Cybox Catback SS Exhaust..K&N Panel Filtered...9Ltr EDS SMIC!!.....

    Yes that is true, sorry to rush in, red stuff tend not to perform so well until they get a bit warm but then they are amazing but yellow stuff perform good no matter what.

    The reds are designed as racing pads and so are higher rated but you may not get the full benefit for road usage.

    Is completely upto you and how your driving style is tbh. If your generally heavy on the brakes then red stuff, if you like to brake heavy now and then than yellow stuff.
