"braking power" is so vague; you have to be more specific

"Braking power" has 100% to do with your tires. The stickier your tires, the shorter your stopping distance. Any competent brake pad will be able to lock the wheel up and trigger ABS, at which point tires are the only things that matter.

So the remaining criteria is dust: try ceramic pads, but be aware there may be less initial bite (whether this is a good thing is personal preference). Search on the forums for reviews about ceramic pads.

Axxis Ultimate Pads from Turner Mororsports. Low cost, I've had them for 4.5 years now, a good 35K miles. A high performance pad that will last, never squeak, and minimal dust. I had these for my STi as well. My favorite pad by far. You just can't beat the price for what you get.

I have mine paired up with Stoptech slotted rotors, Stoptech stainless steel lines, and Super Blue(now gold) DOT 4 high performance braking fluid.
