Looking to upgrade my Brakes.

I am a proud owner of a 2003 50th Aniversary Z06. I am looking to upgrade my brakes and I was considering a 6 piston Stopteck kit. Has anyone used this brand before or are there any other brands that anyone can recomend where I can maintain that level of quality? Also are those Ceramic brakes? Whats the difference bettween Stopteck and Brembo.

Thanks

Stoptech, Brembo, Wilwood, AP Systems, & Alcon all are top quality brake calipers. Any of them will accept ceramic pads, but why would you want to use a ceramic pad in an upgraded brake system? Ceramic pads make less dust, but they don't stop the car as well as regular race pads.

Agreed. Get some Hawk HPS or HPPlus pads. I did on my stock C5 brakes and it made a huge difference.
