It's odd, but mine was amazing when new. I could lock the front with my pinky probably. then after a month or 2 it lost that, and even replacing them with EBC sintered never brought it back. No idea why this is unless the stock pads are better than anything else when new and soon after got to sheet.

papas....i know you can, but for me it was a lot easier w/o the muffler. It's a contortionist's nightmare to begin with, so removing anything in the way that makes it harder is worth it.
