2014 Mazda 6 GT - 6AT
It did open up the EBC OrangeStuff, which I am excited to try out once they get broken in. I could not find that particular compound for the stock calipers, but there are tons of choices for brake pads in general.Duh, youre right, but i still wanted to be sure. I dont feel i need more brake cause of the Z23 pads, but its nice to know this is a viable choice later on.
Some other things to note about these calipers that came as a bit of a surprise. Pistons are phenolic, no metal options currently available that I have found (stocks M6 calipers do have metal pistons of some variety) One of the two slide pins rides in a rubber grommet / bushing (in the second photo you can see that rubber bushing on the lower left side of the bracket). On the stock calipers both are hard connections, metal to metal. I anticipate having the car out on Road Atlanta later this year and will give some feedback on how this setup does.
