Anybody try Wilwood's D52 caliper upgrade?

As written about in Camaro Performers...
http://www.camaroperformers.com/cama...ade/index.html

I am thinking about the front brake upgrade with Wilwood D52 calipers.
Anybody use these? I'm wondering how much of a difference these would make, because I'm not real happy with the performance of my stock brakes.

Eventually, I'd like to put discs on the rear too. But no $$$$ right now for that.

Rod has them on his 68. Maybe he'll jump in here. He didn't like them at first but did some adjusting and liked them a lot for the price. I'll look for his post on the pro touring website.

Thanks. That was very helpful.
It seemed like also upgrading the brake pads did it for Rod...
