same as on my 01 bullitt....

they are great, you will not be disapointed, and they will work wonders with some sorta aftermarket rotor....

ford rotors suck!

Actually Ford rotors dont suck bad. The problem is they wear fast with the use of High performance pads. The real culprit in pre 99 single disc calipers is they are not up to performance driving. They fade fast. when i am screaming down the closed runway near me I have to coast a ways to loose some speed before I start pumping the brakes or they will heat up really fast and fade out bad.

you would need 13 in rotors period with any Cobra or Bullitt calipers


Actually the gains in stopping for general drivving will be small but you actually gain weight do to the larger steel Rotors. Unless you are doing Autocross most V6 cars dont require big *** brake calipers and rotors.

I am not saying dont do it just there are better mods that actually give you better performance gain for the money.

But I think Cobra / Bullitt calipers look bad ***

The Cobra Calipers are actually a little less money than the red bullitt ones and I hear easier to get, but like Corey said, the same other than the color basically. I wanted Power Slot front rotors, but I cheaped out and got the ones that came in a kit for a lot less, cross drilled , slotted and not treated for rust, they are ok.

Whichever you like the best! I would check to see if they are backordering the Bullitt ones though, they were putting them on long term backorder not long ago.

i will get the cobra now what i would like to know is if i have to buy these rotors (cross roadz direct)


Powerslot 1994-2003 Cobra Slotted Brake Rotors FRONT (Pair)Price: $239.00

NOTE: Fits 1994-2003 Cobra Mustangs

Venting the gas from super heated brake pads improves overall brake performance. Of the various venting methods, slotting has the clear advantage. Slotting, unlike drilling, is not prone to cracking. Plus drilling delivers considerably less active braking surface - 8% less than Power Slot Rotors. The tapered slot also channels brake dust and heat away from the rotor and pad for improved braking ability. Power Slot Rotors are CNC-machined and come with an anti-corrosion plating that looks great behind custom wheels.
  • FEATURES:
  • CNC Machined
  • Anti-Corrosion Plating
  • Slots Keep Rotor Cooler
  • Slots Keep Rotor Cleaner
  • Improved Wet Braking
This includes both front-left and front-right slotted rotors. Please add the two rear rotors seperately if you want them as well.

Do not get the aft because the Cobra rear rotors are to big for your stock rear calipers. You can get any Front rotors you want for your car as long as they are for Cobra's. There are many manufactures

The stock calipers on the 99+ mustangs are pretty good for almost anything you really need. Is us fortunate one with 94-98 mustangs that need the upgrade done. So I upgraded mine to the 99+ style and the braking is much smoother and quicker. I forgot who even started this thread, but my recommendation is that 94-98 mustangs upgrade to the 99+ PBR dual calipers and get some powerslot rotors and leave it at that. And if you're going for a more custom look, paint them and add you own mustang like I did.
