V6 Brake Upgrades

Any of you V6's upgrade by conversion kits (mega bucks) or upgrade by getting new rotors and pads that are not in a package deal?

What type of driving are you doing? The V6 (unless heavily modified) does not require any extra braking power. If you track your car, or do some weekend drag strip playing, then upgrade the pads. The stock rotors with a 17 or 18 inch wheel work just fine for the V6 power output.

However, if racing is the primary function of this V6 Mustang, then pads and perhaps slotted rotors to rid the gas buildup of constant braking would be a must. Towing also places a large heat buildup on rotors, but not many folks that I see tow much with their Mustangs.

I have a part time job in a small job shop and the owner is going to start making his own brake setups for Vettes and Mustangs. Using mostly aluminum and Titanium. He goes to track days and that is where he is going to develop his technology on his Z06 Vette and his brothers GT. I'm hoping to get a set at cost when we start building the Mustang sets.

Roush sells stock gt caliper and rotors threw ebay. I think the rotors and calipers are the same as the v6 just larger.

this doesn't make sense. if they are larger then they are not the same.

Apparently they won't fit. It's just the 05-10 that will do it. Our GT won't. I'm going with brake motive from eBay. Pads and rotors for $245. But I'll mainly just buy the rotors since my pads are still good and I tend to warp brakes easily.
