Re: Upgrade 2014 V6 Overland Brakes?
Upgrading the pads will give you shorter stopping distances and maybe a better pedal feel. Hawk LTS is a good pad. OEM pads are primarily designed not to be noisy first on most makes since one of the biggest complaints about brakes is they squeak or are noisy. Dont fall into the marketing trap and buy drilled or slotted rotors you dont need them and the holes and slots are there for looks.
Porsche invented rotors with holes back in the day. Porsche rotors always have the holes cast in which is in contrast to most rotors which have them drilled. Drilled rotors crack. Something else to consider for a firmer pedal feel is to replace the stock OEM rubber brake lines with a Earl's stainless braided brake lines. I prefer and trust Earl's since I plumbed many car with their products and never had a failure. Finally replace the brake fluid with a quality high performance brake fluid like ATE Gold or Blue. You want to look at the wet boiling point and not the dry boiling point.
Many an improved touring car, Porsche Club car, or BMW CCA car has done many a racing season with the stock brakes with just a pad change, Earl's brake lines, a quality brake fluid, and ducting more air to the brakes. You dont need the SRT brakes or big brake kit from Brembo. You get almost the same performance at significant cost savings with better pads, Earl's brake lines and changing to a quality brake fluid.
