Default Brake Pedal Feel - LS400 vs Supra BBK

I searched and can not find a thorough answer to this specific question: Between the two bbk's mentioned above, which one gets rid of the stock mushy pedal feeling the most? Is there a difference between the two? I can not stand the feel of the stock brakes. Please if anyone knows which of these bbks gives more pedal feel back to the driver let us all know. Thank you.

Don't quote me but, I read somewhere that they're pretty much the same calipers besides that the Supra's are alloy and the LS400's being aluminum. You may be able to address your brake feel by replacing your brake lines with stainless steel lines. I have the Goodridge SS lines and they feel great. Pads may also play a part in "brake feel" as well.

I appreciate the feed back. I should've mentioned that I am going to upgrade the lines to stainless steel which ever route I take. What type of pad would help with the feeling? Can anyone else help a fellow member out with input about the two regards to brake feel?

Not many of us have done both... people just usually choose one or the other; I'm sure there's someone out there though.

i had Goodrich lines and EBC greenstuff pads on my stock calipers and rotors... brake pedal and feel were great... Had the pads on for many years with hardly any wear. Hawk pads are another great option as well....

Also, if you use the LS400 calipers you will need to add RCA's to clear the caliper of the tie rod where as the Supra BBK is a direct replacement
