I'd put the GT fronts on the back and the Cobras in the front,, that's if the GTs will fit in the back (don't see why not but you never know)

Yeah, not a bad idea.. Just thought having cobras in the rear would look sweet plus I have not seen it done before

I'm pretty sure with the right tools and creativity that almost anything can be done

I did this on an 01 mustang V6 (front only) was very simple. Just needed the calipers, brake pads, rotors, and brake lines.

For the rear its just a bracket and new rotors, not really worth doing out back for the most part~

I have it done on the front of mine. You can get the bullitt or Mach one brakes too as all are the same, just the 10th anniversary look prettier with the red powdercoat.

Not sure you'll find new 10th anniversary calipers anymore but you can find cobra calipers on eBay all day long

The only difference between the 10th anniversary and regular cobra calipers is that the 10th are red, buy some on eBay and powder coat em red

I have 13" slotted and drilled rotors all the way around but I still have stock gt calipers. What do recommend for aftermarket calipers that aren't too expensive?

Rock auto has the cobra brake calipers. But you need the bracket and the 13 inch rotor and pads. I recommend getting stainless steel brake lines for the front.

How do you have 13" rotors on the stock calipers? You would need a new bracket to fit a 13" rotor. Cobra brakes like mentioned above are a good upgrade for GTs for the money. Really anything after that is the big kits made by Brembo, Wilwood, SSBC, etc.

Not without a relocation bracket... stock rotor size is 11"

Are those 18" rims? Cause a 13" rotor basically fills the gap on a 17" rim

Wow! I must of gotten 11" then. Because the 20" rims I have, and with the new rotors don't take up that much of the rim

I agree, I don't see how 13 inch calipers are working with stock calipers. Plus stock brake pads on a gt are thicker than the cobras so I don't see how that would even work

Like I said I got the wrong rotors. They were supposed to be 13".
