roll AUII XR8 Premium Brake Upgrade

Can anyone please confirm if I can Convert my Std AUII XR8 220 Brakes to PREMIUM Spec?

Can I just replace the 287 mm x 28 mm Rotors with 329mm x 28 mm "Premium" pkg, using the Calliper Adapter Brackets to compensate for greater Dia Rotors, and my std twin pot Callipers?

I kmow from the DBA Spec Sheet, the Rotors are the same Spec ie dimensions exc Diameter.

Are aftermarket Calliper mounting Adapter Brackets available - to accommodate larger Rotors - or must I use Genuine FORD? Ford P/No: 8441 2B134 AB & 8441 2B135 AB

Does anyone know pricing on the the above Rotors, Adapter Bks and PBR Mustang Cobra Callipers for the "Premium" Pkg?

Any other advice would be appreciated - This is just for general Road use (NOT Track) and at $2,400, the PBR "Upgrade Kit" is unfortunately NOT an option.

Regards & BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR!

Hi ,there is a lot to get through here so I'll give it a go,

the 329mm DBA rotors will fit straight on to your car,
Dont know about the calliper brackets.
I think your callipers would do the job.
As for the price of the callipers from Ford, dont even think about.
Somewere on the forums there is a guy with a pair of new Brembo callipers for sale for about 600 bucks which is dirt cheap.
I think you would be able to get calliper brackets made to fit those Brembos as well as your callipers to your car, you'll have to go to an enginering shop.. hope thid helps....Steve
