HZ pads in VL turbo calipers, larger fit better?

Can someone tell me about the mod to brake pads from a HZ or HQ that will fit VL turbo calipers? they have a bigger surface area and are better pads. ANyone know more about this? Im not sure which one to look for.

theres an article on autospeed about that. the pad has to get a some metal taken out of them on the edge, but it works, and it has been done.

DB1075 Falcon pads - you still need to mod the corners of the metal backing to get them to fit though.

Are the front calipers on a non-turbo the same shape as on a turbo? I'm wondering if I could use this HQ-HZ pad theory on my non-turbo.....

you sure they take the same pads dude. I was certain that you have to buy vl turbo specific pads when gettin new ones.. and out of the 2 pads for each side, only one is supposed to be fitted to the piston side of the calliper... if u get what i mean. ??
