Where can I buy new stock 14 GT brake calipers?

I was going to buy brembos but I can wait because I want to maximize my mods with the 2.5k I'm going to spend on them. I want new calipers so I can powder coat the calipers grabber blue.

Ebay...

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=301516626618

But you really want to do that? I think you would be making the right move upgrading your brakes

Or maybe get the caliper covers AM sells and paint them.. At least those would look better than the stock calipers

Well I maybe deploying soon so I'll have extra money to get the brembos later. I really want the brembos but I can do a lot with $1,800.

The 14" Brembo kit is only $1150, where does the $1800 come in?

Hmm. I wanted the rear calipers as well but the price isn't bad for the front brakes. Now I need to get a quote on powder coating them.

First, you don't need rear calipers, they are the same as you already have. The caliper brackets are list at $105 and I can get them for $75 each, the rotors are list at 165 and I get them for $92............you don't need new hoses, you can use your stock hoses (in the rear)...........total for front and back brakes is $1486............a savings of almost $400. Or you can buy the rear kit from Ford S197 Brakes - High Performance and Racing Parts - Vorshlag LLC or they even sell the complete kit for front and rear for $1504.............and I don't think you even need to change the front hoses either.....................maybe you can get AM to price match Vorshlag's pricing.
Just trying to save you some money.

I've got a TrakPak car with Brembo's, and I will upgrade my 11" rears for the 14" rears soon. It's just that I hate taking apart the 8.8 with the C clips..............it's a pain compared to a 9".

Yes, you're right he was talking about the 15", sorry I was thinking 14" rotors front and rear............my bad!
I personally don't see a need to put 15" on a street car, and although those have six pistons instead of 4, it's the size of the pistons (area) of the pistons that stop you fastest.............not the number of pistons.
I doubt that a Mustang with 15" rotors/six piston calipers is going to stop that much faster than 14" rotors/4 piston calipers. As far as brake fad.........on the street you will never notice the difference and at the track with the same pads on both I don't think you'd see much of a difference either.............IMHO

Especially on stock tires and suspension.... Not a lot of people realize that if you can hit your ABS you don't need more braking power.

But you do need brakes and pads that last longer for track duty, the Brembo's are great for that.

I don't have stock tires and I'm about to put $1,800 into the suspension.

It never hurts to try and all they can say is no.
It's your car, if you want to purchase the 14" Brembo's and 14" GT brakes let me know, I'll be glad to help if I can.
Really, the Vorshlag deal is pretty good, $1500 for both front and rear.

Usually track brakes/pads don't last long at all, because of the material the pads are made of. It just depends if you are going to seriously track the car or just go out to have fun. If it's just for fun a good set of pads you also use on the street are fine. If you are serious about tracking the car...........the OE pads and rotors will need to go.
Racing flat out for 35/45 minutes on a 15 turn 3.7 mile course will take it's toll on any normal brake system..........even the TrakPak Brembo's.

Why not pick up some used take offs and save even more. Your going to refinish them anyway. Plenty of auctions out there but here is one example

This one is a killer deal

You could sell anything you don't use, but you would be sure to have everything you need
