Brake Decisions

It's time to upgrade the brakes on my GT. The problem that I am having now is who should I go with. I have been shopping around, and the 3 brands that I have come down to are Brembo big brake, WilWood, and Baer. I have heard good things about all of them. I am starting to lean more tword the WilWood kit, because it is going to save me some money and you still get a nice quality brake. I'm looking for some opinions, and what are you guys running on your cars? The links are below at what I am looking at.

Wilwood Superlite Mustang Front Brake Kit 140-9109-DR (05-14 All) - Free Shipping
Brembo GT500 GT Mustang Big Brake Kit - Slotted Rotors 1B5.8001A2K (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

What year is your GT? If its the GT/CS in your avatar, then forget the Wilwood kit you linked, it uses rotors that are actually smaller then your currents rotors.

You are making this way too hard on yourself. There was a factory Brembo option. That Brembo brake package has been turned into an aftermarket kit by Ford Racing.

14" rotors and 4 piston Brembo calipers. Its not going to get much better then that, and it is by far the cheapest option. There are even cheaper ways to assemble the same kit if you get resourceful.

If you want to go crazy, then look for the 15" rotor 6 piston Brembo brake kit offered by Ford Racing. Its the same front brake setup as the 2013/14 GT500.

You can get GT500 take offs on the evilbays. Honestly if your car didn't come with the Brembos then the FRPP kit is probably your best bet tho. Or just get a really good set of pads and rotors for your current set and see if you like them.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
