With the stock system I was going through a set of OEM pads in 3 to 4 20min sessions before the pads turned to dust. After upgrading to the BBK I was able to go 5 sessions before getting the stoptech performance pads to start to fade. Just moving to the BBK and the supplied pads made a huge improvement over the stock kit and stock pads. Running Hawk DTC pads with the BBK I have not experienced any fade yet and I have not installed air cooling ducts. Only thing missing is I did not try race pads with the stock set up to see if that would need cooling also.
