Re: AU1 Brake upgrade suggestions
I am working on that very upgrade at the moment
as for your option two:
to fit the twin piston calipers with the 330mm rotors you need to fit the T series PBR and brackets. To find those calipes i can only wish you luck!
for rotors i was lucky enough to get my hands on a prototype DBA rotor, however the 400 and the 500- DBA series will do teh job nicely which cost between 700 to 800 a pair.
I belive you can use series 2 standard uprights to fit the T series calipers, but i will test that theory next week when they arrive next week, otherwise u need to find T series uprights as well (which are 1500 new from ford :( ).
thirs u need abraided hose lines which doesnt cost too much. for my rotors I am using metal king pads, however i wouldnt use them with the 400 and 5000 thousand series as they use a softer cast and might wear the rotor too much, bendix ultimates will do just fine, however being soft compound u might have to replace them more often than harder compounds.
I am not sure if you have to exchange the brake booster or not, wil find that out once i test the new system.
all up it costing me aroun 1700 bucks, the cebco kits cost around 2500 i belive it is and the brembos cost 4000+ ...
once i got the brake upgrade sorted i will post some pics and a write up ...
