It was asked some time ago weather it was worth converting to the new mustang breaks from 1996-2004 cars and the answer was NO (see attached thread)

forums dot corral dot net/forums/showthread dot php?t=700746

But recently I saw an ad at the top for corrral

vintagevenom dot com/shelby-gt500-brake-and-wheel-conversion

That sells a kit to convert to the GT500 brakes for $395. You can get the GT500 calipers and rotors for under $500 from e-bay.

So for less than $900 I can have 4 piston brembo brakes assuming I have 18" wheels. The cheapest Cobra R kits I can find are over $1300. What do you think? Is it worth doing and will it work???

sorry I cannot post link yet so copy, past and replace the "dot" with a "."

Like diesel I am looking for an autocross champ. I have the handling I am looking for and definatly have the power but I lack the stopping power needed. For autocross with speeds below 90mph, what is the best brake setup then???

Diesel, excellent point about tires! And the PBR brakes can be had for short change when compared Brembo.
