Track Pack Brembo's on Base 2014 GT

Well, I know that everyone says you can do it. I just wanted to say that you can do it, very easily.

I bought a set of Brembos from a wrecking yard for 225$. One of the crossover pipes on the bottom of the caliper was mangled, so I had to order that and it was 55$.

Then I ordered the two backing plates, 16.50$ a piece from Ford.

I also found a set of front and rear Hawk ceramic pads, new in box on Craigslist for 150$.

Bought Stop Tech slotted rotors for the front for 195$ from Autoanything with free shipping.

I work at a body shop, so I had them painted. I spent 3 hrs cleaning them and taping them off. Painted 2008 Dodge Viper Metallic Blue, with white pearl and 3 coats of clear.
















It was super easy to do. Spent more time, cleaning and painting all 4 calipers, and then bleeding the brakes than I did installing the parts.

Looks really nice....now all you have to do is to install the GT500 rear rotors to make it look even better...........Big rotors up front and 11" rotors out back just look out of place.........IMHO

No I agree. But 14" rotors front and rear is a poor set up. If I had the 15" gt500 fronts I would've done that. I may go with one of the 13" rear kits, but for now the car just pounds the pavement back and forth to work on the highway, with occasional drag strip trips.

Not really understanding your comment.....14" rotors in front and 13.8" in the back is a pretty evenly balanced setup.......worked very well on my 14 TrakPak.

Everything I have read said you wanted larger up front and not even sizes. I read many threads on the gt500 rear upgrade and a lot of people advised against it...to each their own I suppose. Whatever works.

I can appreciate reading about theory on the internet......great place to gain information although the real world can be a little different. Bigger discs out back are for loosing heat faster not stopping faster. Does it do any good on the street.........probably not.......at the strip......not unless you are doing 130mph when you go through the traps.........on a road course........you bet!
In my drag car I had smaller discs in front than in the rear....in my road race car I had slightly bigger discs up front with 4 piston calipers and slightly smaller discs in the rear........but with single piston calipers.........kind of like the TrakPak with 14" four piston calipers up front and 11.8" discs in the rear with single piston calipers. The temperature of the rear brakes on a road course will exceed the OE pads and rotors promoting uneven and quick ware. In creasing the rear rotors by 2" will allow the OE pads to run 30% cooler in the same track situation.....stopping power with the single piston caliper is changed....but only very slightly.

I assumed the bigger rotor and moving the caliper out further from the center would increase the stopping power significantly. I am not opposed to doing it. I can get the brackets for cheap. Just didn't want to change the braking characteristics a bunch. My car will probably never see a road course. And I don't really take any windy roads. So if I'm a jamming on the brakes it's because I either saw a cop, my radar detector is going off or some obstacle appeared in front of me. If I did the bigger brakes it would be more for show than woah. But I did the brembos because I felt the stock base brakes sucked. Plus I have had an incessant squeak from the front so I put all new everything. No more squeak. Haha

Placing the caliper further out does little to increase stopping power...you are just putting the caliper out further to make contact with the larger rotor and the difference you can feel is minimal at best.
You can buy the OE bracket although you will need to pull the axles out of the housing to mount the bracket....myself and a number of people on the forum have used these brackets 05 14 Mustang 14" Rear Brake Rotor Adapter Brackets GT Boss 302 GT500 V6 13 8" | eBay
and changing from 11.8" to 13.8 discs takes about an hour for both sides....
If nothing more than to make the brake system look better if you have open wheels......with the 14" discs up front and tiny discs in the rear....the cost is minimal.........just a thought.

I did what olerodder is talking about as well. I noticed a difference when doing mountain driving. They just felt like they ran a bit cooler in the rear, plus they really do look better. I also did the spacer.

Nice job - I think they look great and how nice you are able to do all the work yourself. Makes it a lot cheaper. For us non do it yourselfers - installation can get costly! Plus you were able to get the parts from cheaper places - junk year - craigs list etc.

Good job!

Wanna take a vacation and come to Wisconsin and do the same for mine LOL. Red would look great!

We have helped some friends diagnosis on a motor using skype....I'll bet we could help guide someone through doing this and even help locate parts at a reasonable price.......as long as the person had some basic tools.....I think it would work.

I hope the blue paint holds up. Is it a high temp. rated paint? Baked on powder paint? Or just sprayed?

That paint job came out really nice. Is "Brembo" painted on or is that a decal?

So how difficult was it to swap out the rears for a larger disk? What kind of cost did you run into?

It was very easy. As hard as it is to do a brake job really. The cost was pretty cheap as well. It's been a little while so I'm guesstimating the prices I paid. The adapters were like 130 (Ebay link above), gt500 replacement rotors (rockauto about 65 each I believe), and I did some new hawk pads from AM for like 80 bucks. So all said and done it was about 300 bucks.
