In the majority of cases a ceramic pad will not perform any better than a standard semi-metallic pad and they usually cost more as well. Some even lack the same performance (look at Tireracks brake pad performance chart). The only real benefit from ceramics is they tend to dust less. Personally I'd stick with a reliable and "proven" street performance pad like Hawk HPS. You're going to all this expense to improve braking so why gamble? Go with a sure thing!
