If it helps, the 15" brembos are able to clear 19x9.5 SVE drift wheels. Check LMR for their specifications

Thinking about getting these Ford Racing Mustang High Performance Brake Cooling Shields (05-14) | Free Shipping! Not sure if they work with the 14" Brembos as they're for the 15" big Brembo kit.

I thought the only thing that differed from the 4 piston and 6 piston kits were just the size of the calipers themselves? I have seen people put the 6 piston kits on their GTs with no prob (of course after checking clearence). However, I would still contact the vendor to confirm.

Nope the bigger rotors too, 15" with 6 pistons vs 14" on 4 piston. They're both bolt ons without any need of a bracket (on GTs at least). Wheel clearance is the main issue. Stock wheels (any package) won't clear 6 pistons. Would need to go aftermarket for sure

Where does the clearance issue occur? Is it rim width with rims needing to have a big enough concave for the spokes to clear? I'm guessing my v6 will need the GT caliper brackets as that's the only difference between the GT and V6 front brakes (GT caliper bracket allows for slightly larger front rotor).

If you got 19" wheels, then the only other concern is them clearing the spokes. The install kit from AM has everything else you need for the install. You could get wheel spacers for spoke clearance.

From the face of the rotor, to the face of the 4 piston Brembo is right at 2.375 inches. You still need to factor in the step on the rotor, the wheels mounting surface to the rotor face. It is around 1.040 inches. Which gives you a difference of 1.335 inches (33.9mm), this is how far the caliper sticks out past the surface the wheel mounts to. You will need to factor in some clearance of course. My TSW wheels only clear by a 1/16th or so, so you don't need much. 35mm "should clear, but I would figure with 36mm minimum too be safe. Use that in conjunction with your wheel width and offset to figure how much extra space you need. My name is also Kevin Cook. That really freaks me out for some reason. I also have a sterling gray 14.

You know, they do say everyone has a twin somewhere in the world! LOL!!!

Still waiting for Fall so I can get my Brembos. Should be picking up my car today. Had 3.73s installed and BMR rear LCAs.

I ordered the 14" Brembo + 4 piston kit, with 2-piece rotors. I plan on using Motul 600 or 660.

So my only concern now ( for road racing) is cooling the front brakes.

3 options:

Simple/cheap: $50
Ford Racing GT500 Mustang Brake Cooling Shields M-20045-MSVT (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

Good: $210, but I don't like the placement of "intakes" unless I can hide them behind the grill.
JLT Mustang Brake Cooling Kit - Silver Bezels JLTBCK-FM13-C (13-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping

Best: $520, too much money, but looks OEM & awesome. And I'm sure works best
Ford Racing 2013 Mustang Brake Duct Kit

I think I'm just going to go the $50 "cheap" route and hope its good enough.

You will like those upgrades. I have BMR LCAs as well. I have the BMR UCA and mount too, I just haven't had time to install them. The Brembo kit isn't a cheap upgrade, but worth it. You will be glad you did them.

I am assuming you aren't going to be driving the car in the rain, right?

The stock GT500's won't do much, they just replace the big stock shield you now have. They don't force any air through the rotor.

Take a look at these;
Vorshlag S197 4" Oval Tube Brake Duct Backing Plates (Pair) - Vorshlag LLC

Don't put all of your eggs in one basket, upgrade the rears also form the 11.8 to 13.8".

The Boss 302 Laguna Seca are nice, just a little expensive. Nothing against AM, see what the price is at; EXHAUST KIT QUAD TIP MGT 2013-14

I didn't see your last comment!
Why cheap out on cooling the brakes when you spent all of that money on 2 piece rotors...........doesn't make any sense to me.

Anyone have recommendations for rotors? I have the 4 piston 14 inch fronts and 13.8 rears. Looking for a decent DD rotor that doesn't break the bank ($70ish range). I'm going with either the Hawk ceramic, 5.0's or HPS pads.

So...............what is wrong with the rotors you currently have?
If you are going to be putting new pads on.........just have the rotors turned...............a lot cheaper at $20 per rotor than spending $70/80 each for new ones.

So I went to whitebear lake & ordered the full 2013-2014 302 kit, only to find out they can't provide it. FRPP discontinued it as of the end of May and NOONE has it available.

Why does it matter if I drive in the rain? I rarely drive in the rain, but those shields are supposed to be stock on the GT500 big brembo kits, so they should be "rain proof" They allow more air to flow around the backside of the rotors thus you do get better cooling. No where nearly as good as air that's directed at the rotors.

I'm going to build my own kit:
  • Lower foglight = $42 ($21 each) DR33-17B968 (RH) & DR33-17B969 (LH)
  • ebay duct & rotor shields = $210 (for ducts & shields)

$252 + shipping

Just wire and tap in small electric fans behind the wheels, directed at the rotor area.

I could possibly build my own kit:
California Special lower fog light plastic pieces = $?
DR33-17B968 (RH) & DR33-17B969 (LH)
tubes = $119
FTB Rotor shield/duct = $149
I doubt the GT500 shields(if you can call them shields)are rain proof. All the guys I know with Shelby's drive then in the sun, not rain.

I have a v6...with v6 rotors and I am switching to 14 inch brembos, so I need new rotors.

Ok, so you haven't gotten anything yet? Are you going to buy used ones or new ones?
If you buy used take-offs they should come with rotors/lines/shields then you can just take them and have them turned.
For my money OE parts are good and I know my best price on 14" rotors is around $120 each and even at www.brakeperformance.com where I've bought their discs and pad packages they are still $115 each. I doubt you are going to find any 14" front discs for $70 or under. If you were talking stock 13" discs, sure you can buy them for less than $70 each, but not 14" discs.......................ALTMK.

Centric has some priced in that range. I already have the calipers, I paid 130 each for them.

Sounds like you got a real good deal on the calipers.
When I put GT500 discs in mine I think I paid $75 each for the rear discs and $130 for the adapter to move the stock caliper, which was $330 for 13.8" discs, bracket, and TrakPak pads like I have in the front. It sure fills up the rear wheels after having the 11.8" rear discs.
Also stopping from triple digits is slightly better.

So my Brembo calipers, (4) new rotors, all new pads, SS lines, etc. are in.
But since I decided to upgrade the cooling from just the GT500 shields. Now I'm going to wait & do it all at once. So the $3k worth of parts are sitting in my trunk.



I was actually holding off on this big $ expenditure to make this car track ready, as I was considering getting a 2016 GT350 and selling my '14 vert, but the best price I've gotten so far for the GT350 is $15k over MSRP, which puts it at $72k. Not worth it IMO.

Please take pictures when putting them on.
While at the Ford dealer yesterday after they replaced the pinion seal the owner of the Dealership was talking about this with the sales manager and what I gathered is that they are going between $10k and $15k over sticker, and there will be no deals given as most of them will be spoken for before they are delivered. For that kind of money I could make my own GT350R out of 16 Performance Package!
