I'm on the way to pick it up now. I think it will be way different compared to stock. I've read a bunch of reviews and they say that the lines alone will make a difference because they dont flex like the rubber ones do.

I'm glad you're enjoying the brakes John! The stoptech setup is really nice all around and this is by far one of my favorite pads to use. Bedding in your pads really brought me back to the days of my bugeye and the countless brake setups I had on that thing
