Brembo Brakes on a Standard GT

Other than swapping out the calipers, dust shields and lines is there anything else to be done?

You forgot the rotors..............the Brembo calipers will not fit the standard 13" front rotors.
Just a thought, if you are thinking about upgrading the front discs, why not start with the rear discs first.....................they are a lot cheaper to convert from the small 11.8" disc to the 13.8" disc used on the GT500 and still use your lines and calipers and not even have to remove the axles.
Rear discs from Ford at $92ea, good pads at $60 for the set, and $130 for the adapters.............a total of $364 and you can install them yourself.

Since my car is TrakPak it already had Brembo's in front.............now it has the GT500 13.8" discs in the rear. You can look at my pictures to see the difference.

Any big difference when you upgraded to the gt500 rear? I'll hardly think it's will, for someone who dd their cars.

I just did this on my 3.7 and I'm really happy I did. Technically you don't need to swap out the brake lines, but I recommend getting some SS lines.

Yes it does make a difference. If you are just putting around town I doubt you will notice anything. If you are at freeway speeds or are using your brakes more than usual it does make a bigger difference than you would think.........depending on what pads your have on the car.
It will not be as big a difference as going to the Brembos. Kind of like going from 4 piston Brembo to 6 piston Brembo front brakes.
Also, if you do use your brakes more than usual splitting the clutch fluid to a separate reservoir rather than sharing it with the brakes will make a difference in the clutch feel which is noticeable..................as for the brakes.........I have felt no difference.

I JUST swapped mine:

FRPP Brembo 2-piece kit $2,000
+ gyrodisc 2-piece rear rotors $700
+ boss 302 duct kit $400 (see below)



I had the rotor covers put on during the install. But I haven't run the ducts or changed the lower fog light duct part, yet.

You just need the calipers, pads, and rotors. The dust hats did not change on my car until I ran ducts. I will warn you to stay away from really aggressive pads in the front caliper (such as Hawk HP+) as you will have ice mode trigger intermittently under hard braking. I will just give one word of advice about going to the GT500 rear without a 14" front rotor, it will mess with your ABS system, and could have adverse reactions (again, only under hard braking, it will freak when it sees a whole bunch of unexpected decel on the rear wheels vs the front wheels). If you buy used, be sure to check the rubber boots on all eight pistons, as they are known wear items on this caliper, and do not hold up to heat (only an issue if the caliper has seen road courses a few times with a fast driver).

I was thinking of doing this upgrade and wait to get brembos later on. I dd mine, so It won't make a big difference. So I guess I'm going brembo first.
