Hi Guys my ef gli front rotors need replacing and i was wondering if the ef xr8 are bigger and are they a braking advantage over the stock falcon brakes.do the calipers off my car need to be changed to accept the xr8 rotors?.

Also wondering what are a good front&rear brake pad to use for street/srip use.

Thanks
Mark

ef/el brakes are identical accross the range GLI to Fairmont Ghia to XR8, apart from EL GT brakes which are twin piston front calipers and bigger discs.
