hey i have a 2003 v6 convert. and i was wondering if i could upgrade to 13in slotted rotors, without trashing my stock pbr dual piston calipers. i realize i will need to get rid of my 16in stock wheels to fit the larger rotors; however i plan on buying 18in wheels anyway. So what kind of slotted rotors and brake pads would you suggest, and would you even deal with the rear rotors or pads? thanks
The problem is the stock caliper wont fit over the 13" rotor. You will have to buy calipers for 13" rotors. I recommend Power slot rotors and kevlar pads. I will also tell you now not to buy Ceramic pads, they are for racing on the track and provide poor stopping in day to day traffic as well as rain/cold conditions. I had Hawk pads and did not like them. They provided no better stopping than OEM and they created 3 times more dust. I have gone back to using Bendix OEM GT pads. Believe it or not even though V6's and GT's have the same calipers Ford puts better pads on the GT. So if you go to get Pads ask for GT pads
you can buy a full front set of brake pads/calipers/rotors/lines for 400 or less depending on if you want the red powdercoated ones or just oem black (get the red ) however you MUST have 17 inch rims to clear the brakes.
