+1^ there is a noticeable difference in braking power and grip coming from the stock GT brakes. They dissipate heat much better, I consistently hit 115mph at the road course and noticed hardly any brake fade no matter what speed I was doing.

Are those 17 inch wheels or 18? I was concerned about having to change sizes

17s. Those are my old Bullitts. One thing to remember is that you can't use your stock spare tire on the front if you go with them because it won't clear the calipers.

Yeah no problem, I should mention that I was on a Street/Track brake pad last time I went to the track.

You could visit a few of the local salvage yards and if you can find a Mach 1, its spare will work. Might be worth the effort looking for one.

*Edit*
Not sure about the Cobra's, but the Mach's have a full height spare tire.

I've tossed the idea around. I may just pick one up off Ebay. There aren't a lot of salvage mustangs let alone Mach 1s

Lol, you're prolly right. Mustangs get snatched up pretty quickly from salvage yards. Or at least stripped out big time. Didn't think of that. Lol

Yeah there's a salvage yard with a lot of Mustangs but they charge an arm and a leg for the more exotic parts.

Mustangs aren't even put out into the yard until all the stuff is yanked out and thrown up on CL/Ebay/Carpart.com...

As for the OP, the Cobra front's bolt right on, the REAR brakes, however, require the axles to come out to put the vented Cobra/Mach/Bullitt rears on. Most of the braking is done by the front though so even just doing the fronts will be a big difference.
