What pads are you using on porsche calipers?

I was thinking to use ferodo or redstuff. I was thinking redstuff because i have slotted wilwood gt rotors, i dont like dust.

Depends on your application and brake balance to some extend.
I use (Ferodo) DS3000 on the rear. Its a track pad with high friction and I like it.

Alex, Red stuff are for high power heavyweight cars. Use EBC greenstuff for the same effect. I'm using Greenstuff in 944 single pots and pagid in the 928S4 rears. With Porsche calipers I very much doubt whether you will get anywhere near fade so the softest pad material is necessary for initial bite. Greenstuff does have that plus a little extra latitude on the heat range.

Ok, too bad that there is no greenstuff pads for 996 front calipers, or if there is, i havent find them yet.

I know, there will be little fade, if not all with wilwood gt 330x28 rotors and 996 calipers. Greenstuff sounds better, it may be softer braking with them.

Do you have Performance Friction over there? I used to run Pagid but I ended up continuously developing deposit issues causing vibration. Switched to Performance Friction have have been really impressed, they are very expensive though.
