Willwood Brakes

Well I finally took delivery of my front & rear Wilwood brake kits today Let me just tell you, the quality is second to none. If any of you have been considering a Wilwood kit I definitely recommend it. I took some pictures for you guys to see what comes in these kits. I also have included a picture of my first ever safety wire job!

Well, very very very very expensive. I have 5 different kits in the pictures. Front kit, rear kit, front stainless lines, rear stainless lines and E brake cables. Everything needed for my 05. I spent a lot, no really A LOT on these kits. I searched the Internet and got the best price from some place I can't even remember but if someone is serious about the place and price I'll get it for you.

My point exactly. The Brembo 4 piston kit doesn't come close in overall fit/finnish/quality and it costs as much or more so you do get what you pay for.

I agree it's expensive but as I mentioned the four piston, one piece non slotted Brembo kit costs as much and can't compare to the two piece slotted rotors and 6 piston calipers in this kit. But as you mentioned, expensive.

Yup, I melted some serious plastic over the past few months. I turn 40 on Monday and figured it's time to make it happen and stop wishing. I lost my dad last year and he spent his whole adult life building a car that he only had 5 years to play with before he died. I have a great wife who understands [although I'm sure she does not know exactly how much I spent ]. I hope to get my car on MMAFF some day.

I understand that! I have been wanting a procharger ever since I took delivery of my 2006. I'm getting married in September and my fiancé is talking kids already so I figured now or never and bought it. She thinks it cost half of what I actually paid.

I've got the brembo 1 piece rotor set up. I'm wondering what the advantage is with the 2 piece.

From what I've read the Wilwood's internal fins are larger and flow more air and being 2 piece the hub is smaller and aluminum which is lighter and cools more efficient. The kit I got is also 6 piston.

I am taking of the same Brembo kit for the Wilwood. I liked my Brembo kit am changing to Wilwood because they do not make a rear kit. Me being anal couldn't have Brembo on the front an Wilwood on the back

Re: Willwood Brakes

I wish I could afford new brake system my stang has stock brakes and 20" wheels and I don't think the brakes are sufficiant for the larger wheels I could be wrong.

Yeah. The cool thing is my brembo fronts are red and the anniversary rears are red also so everything matches up. Drilled and slotted rotors on the rear do well enough.

Yah I've read just a rotor upgrade and better pads are sufficient for the rear.
