Average size calipers

So today I'm ordering new break pads and rotors and possibly re-painting them. Bought the car last summer so don't know what the previous owner did. The calibers just looked a little big to me. Just wanted to get with u guys and get your opinions on the size if regular or upgraded thanks Click image for larger version

There should be a part number or name cast in the caliper so you can identify if it's a stock caliper, or if a previous owner added an aftermarket one.

Yeah, stock calipers there. The only way you can get "bigger" brakes is if you upgrade them to bullit or cobra calipers. Even the GT's used the same calipers as the V6

Unless you have money burning in your pocket I suggest you don't waste your money. Your calipers are more than strong enough for your car. The only reason to get bigger brakes is if you're putting down some serious power or you just want to make your calipers look good

Exactly. Even if you do full bolt ons and stay NA you still won't need bigger brakes. A good set of rotors and pads would do wonders.

Have you gotten a chance to try Cobra brakes? It's a major difference in braking power. I always had to brake really early on the track purely because there isn't enough clamping force with the stock GT brakes

Never had the chance. If I had the money though I would do the swap. Hardly anything an average joe like any of us can do to a V6 can warrant that expense. It's a good upgrade, don't get me wrong but you can put that money towards something better. I've never had a problem with stopping. I think David on here has the fastest new edge v6 and he's using stock calipers (I think)

I've never changed mine. Bought my car about 7 months ago and it's been down 2 of those months. I'm changing to brakemotive pads and rotors soon though

Understandable. It depends on your application really. I bought them cause I got sick of having ****ty brake at the track and it's nice having the peace of mind that if I need to make an emergency stop I know I can get the car stopped fast

Too much brakes is. Bad thing also. You can lock up your wheels and skid to a stop everywhere. There's a lot more to braking than calipers peeps
