Seeing as how they gots um fer the Willywoods.

I'd get the same compound so they work at about the same temp range and avoid one being grippier than the other.

I use the wilwood blacks up front and Hawk HPS in the back. Works great 2 years and 35k miles on this combo, but squeks in the cold and an extreme amount of dust on the wilwood blacks up front.

Sigh... Dynalite Forged Billets.... Are not on that list. Is it just "Dynalite" or... huh?

Info from Hawk:
HB540H.490 (DTC05 compound, HP+ is HB540N.490 but they don't make them)
(Looks like ~45 for the set, plus S&H)
DTC30 - Step grippier than the 05's.
DTC05 - gripper than HP+ (didn't seem this from their literature, hard to follow)
TireRack - main distributor
HP+ - 100-800*, DTC05 100-900*

Wilwood:
BP-20 similar to E-compount
150-9413k (kit - pads, pins) $54.08 (Ordered from Summit via ebay (weird) for $65 shipped)
150-9413
There is a BP-30, but more wear on the the rotors.
