Carbotech 1521...they are as quiet as my stock pads were, the dust cleans off the wheels easier (and they dust less), and I have absolutely no complaints about their performance. They're awesome.

Your stock LS3 heads might actually be a better choice than your AFR's depending on which heads they are and what's done to them.

Same cranks fit so long as you swap the reluctor wheel.
