So I wanted to update this thread after a lot of troubleshooting and comparing to a few other cars. Seems like the issue is actually related to the bigger 282 cams in the car. At idle the vacuum is not great and thus I am not getting much help from the booster. On deccel there is more vacuum and thus the car brakes better from speed.
I am going to add a vacuum reservoir, for now though I need to push harder on the pedal at low vacuum conditions
A couple months ago I switched to a new set of J-hook rotors with hawk pads. The braking wasn’t great so I switched to the mx72 which improved it dramatically but I am having an odd issue.
When I let the car sit for a day or so the first time I get on the brakes it feels a little squishy and doesn’t stop hard. Once I have braked a few times and have some heat in the system it gets noticeably better and stops like the combo should. I have bled them a few times and do not see any air. Any thoughts on anything else to try? Anyone ever have warping of J-hooks? Fluid level is solid and no leaks. I also have the master cylinder brace.
Maybe I got a bad set? Might try a set of RB or DBA T3 5000 for street usage, anyone have experience with these? I love j-hooks but these suck for some reason
