The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

IMO Power Stop Ceramic pads are good for average street use. But for spirited driving they do not do so well. As the pad gets hotter the braking distance becomes increased and the braking predictability gets questionable. I have traditionally used on my daily drivers HAWK brake pads. I see your choice of supplier carries HAWK rotors so perhaps also the pads? IMO HAWK are the best ceramic pad you can get. In the world of brake pads you get what you pay for. As far as I'am concerned you DON'T skimp on brake parts!

We used Freodo for track or very fast street cars
HAWK for all around street and spirited driving street and light track
EBC Green Stuff same as HAWK but second over HAWK.
In trying many other pads they did not do as well as these 3.

A lot in choosing a pad not only has to do with how you drive and where but also what tires you have the other brake components and suspension condition. Truthfully no one can decide for you and every PT is a little different but a continued research with all the information about brake pads will help you decide your personal best choice.

+1 for Hawk Pads.

i use the HPS pads for street/DD and the HPS+ pads for the track.

I bought "power stop" at Rock Auto 3 weeks ago, they fit perfectly, however, they were noisy for the first 100 miles. I broke them in as detailed with the order to the letter. Now they are not noisy, braking seems about the same as moe.
If you do go with Power stop, the instructions don't tell you to grease the crap out of everything but the ceramic part of the pads. Bynot doing that, the noise level is bad.

fwiw
