Definitely improved breaking power compared to the old deteriorated rotors and break pads. One test that I would be curious to find the results about is testing the new EBC rotors and new red stuff ceramic brake pads vs. new OEM rotors and brake pads, but can not do do such test because of tedious process obviously. I am pretty sure the EBC are superior to OEM products, just do not know how much more superior. I noticed with the slotted rotors that while braking there is a a light vibration feel in the braking pedal. Think it is because of those slotted tracks on the rotors. Would be nice if the manufacturer can advise on the product instructions what to expect to feel while braking. Additionally, I would have liked that the red stuff brake pads were packed (bubble wrapped or something) separately. The ceramic pads can easily be chipped away if not carefully packaged. Mine arrived with a slight chip.
Overall, I am satisfied with both the rotors and brake pads and I do recommend their use over stock equipment for better all around braking.
