The Brembo's are going to create a lot of dust, I got brake dust on my hands unwrapping the bubble wrap they were packaged in. The ceramic pads are not. If you're going to run only on the street ceramics will be fine. If you track the car, ceramics won't work anywhere near as good as the Brembo pads. For the money I think the Brembos are a good pad for Novice and Intermediate level drivers and the price is right. Racing Brake track pads will run around $375 a set and Cobalt Friction will be $500 a set.
I run a lot of laps at Watkins Glen which is a pretty fast track. I tried Hawk HP Plus pads on my stock 4 piston SS Calipers and had issues. Took them off and threw them away and put the stock Brembo SS pads back on and had no issues. They worked great for the remainder of my track time. My first days at Watkins Glen this year will be May 3rd and 4th. We'll see how the six piston CTS-V calipers with the Brembo pads work. Stay tuned.

I believe the Brembos are the stock pad for the ZL1 and CTS-V. Online GM Parts houses list the ZL1 and CTS-V pad as part # 25940447 which matches the GM Part # on the ACDelco 171-1040 box. FYI GM wants $275 for the same pads I got off Amazon for $173.

I hope this info helps. If you need more, just ask.

I knew I had the good pads when I saw the box said made in Italy then opened it and found the Brembo box. I am going with the Brembo pads and will save the Durastop as emergency backup. As you can see in the photos below, there is a difference in the materials. In the photos below when I am comparing the two pads the top is the Brembo and the bottom is the AC Delco Durastop.
Great info. Keep it coming!

I am tracking next weekend 12/13 on the AC Delco pads and will report back after....It will be in the mid 40 and 50s here next weekend and this is the first time out after putting all new caliper on the car... I will shake it down before I push it to see what happens with the AC Delco ones.

Yes the stock pads on both the CTS-V and the ZL1 are the Ferrodo 1000....This is also the same material used on the SS/1LE.

TD thanks for great information. Yes it helped a lot. I'll be purchasing the stock Brembo pads. I'll deal with the dust. Thanks also Matt.

Is there any difference in clearance from the caliper to the wheel vs stock brembo's?

What shipping did you guys get from Amazon. I left it with the free shipping option, since it's the same as standard. I hope it doesn't take forever. I ordered two days ago and they haven't at least shipped them out yet

So, looking for rotor choice alternatives for this setup so I can weigh my options. Not finding much out there that's made for the ZL1.

So my question is this: will a set of rotors designed for a CTS-V fit? These are aftermarket rotors, not the one piece that came on the CTS-Vs. Just want to make sure the V's don't have some wonky design difference that's different than a ZL1 before I order.

A lot of members used the actual cts v rotors in the 6 piston swap, so if it's designed for the cts v then it will work. But the cts v rear rotors have a different offset so we can't use cts v rear rotors from what I've read

Duly noted. I'll give the company a call tomorrow and see what they say, but if need be, I'll just buy ones made fore the CTS-V in the front only, then get some made for SS brakes in the rear.

I'm in the same boat as you. I was gonna get the cts v dual cast from amazon but I decided to be patient and grab the two piece zl1 rotors off amazon for a lil bit more.

I've got my eye on some from Brake Performance. I know they're nothing special performance wise, but I like the warranty and I just think they look cool lol. Plus they weigh slightly less than the CTS-V rotors.

Yea they do look pretty cool. And if you can get some rear matched SS rotors it would be sweet. How much are they asking.

Not bad at all. I would imagine they would be the same size as the oem cts v

Their website says they guarantee OEM fitment. I'm sure performance isn't any better than stock but they seem decent quality and the warranty gives me peace of mind.

Yea they should be good then. I just love how massive the ZL1 rotor is. I never imagined getting them until this post and I seen the amazon price. I'm gonna wait 2 weeks before I purchase the rotors. I ordered the 6 piston calipers, pins, and pads to get that out the way, now I gotta make a decision on rotors

I called them and they said they should fit, but they don't have any in stock whatsoever for any of their front rotor styles. Need to check around and see if another re seller has any since she told me the wait could be over a month.
