Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the MGP Red Caliper Covers with the Tri-Bar Pony Logo for the front and rear of all 2015 and newer V6 and EcoBoost Mustangs. So in this video, I'll be going over the styling and appearance you can expect out of the MGP Red Caliper Covers I have with me on the table today as well as the materials and construction. I'll even top the video off with the installation, which I'll tell you upfront will be a very simple job for anybody to take care of with a little bit of time at home, giving it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Let's get right into it.The MGP Red Caliper Covers I have with me today with the Tri-Bar Pony logo will be for all 2015 and newer V6 and EcoBoost Mustang owners out there looking to capture an aggressive styling similar to that of a Big Brake Kit. And they're gonna make their caliper stand out like this one here without actually breaking the bank. Now, we all know a Big Brake kit is something a lot of Mustang owners have highly desired to put on their own ponies, simply because of its aggressive and noticeable styling.Now, with that said, a lot of that impressive styling comes with a pretty hefty price tag, and especially for those Brembo and Wilwood kits there that have the functionality of impressive stopping power. But then again, you can capture their aggressive appearance with something like an MGP Caliper Cover just to give your calipers the impression of having that Big Brake kit installed.Now, these particular caliper covers from MGP will actually snap right on your factory calipers for both the front and rear of your V6 and EcoBoost model. This particular kit I have with me today was specifically made for those V6s and those turbo EcoBoosts. But with that said, they are offered in the gloss red appearance I have with me, but also a gloss black if you're interested in that as well.And as you can see here, we've got the classic Tri-Bar Pony logo that we all know and love. But if you're interested in a GT or Shelby option, you can check those out on the site as well to fit any of your preferences. So as you can see with me I have the Tri-Bar Pony logo, a classic Mustang symbol, actually engraved directly into the rear caliper covers here. And if you take a look on the other side, we have the officially licensed by Ford "Mustang" name engraved onto the front calipers just to sow some of that pony pride.Now, again, there are other logo options available on the site, so you can check those out as well. But these ones here actually offer a very aggressive styling for the side profile and the wheel wells to make them pop a little bit more than the boring stock options.Now, as far as the materials and construction goes here, expect a 6061-T6 aerospace aluminum, which is a lightweight compound, a very durable compound as well, all completed in that gloss red powder coated finish for aggressive good looks, a really shiny, noticeable appearance here, and, of course, that long lasting corrosion resistance. In addition to that, there's the gloss black option on the site as I mentioned before with a bunch of different logo options. You can check that out on www.americanmuscle.com as well.Now, in addition to that, you'll also notice that these are actually very much bigger than the factory options for your calipers and, of course, can actually reduce a little bit of brake dust buildup on your wheels for a cleaner appearance overall. Overall, you get that Big Brake appearance. But, of course, it's not gonna be quite the same thing, but it's better than breaking a wallet. If this is something that piques your interest, expect to pick it up for just about 200 bucks, which in my personal opinion isn't too bad of a price compared to the other option, which is the alternative picking up a Brembo or Big Brake kit there, which can go over a thousand dollars for just the front and for the rear. So, combined, this is not a bad price overall. MGP has been doing this for almost every generation of Mustang dating back to the Fox Body. And, of course, the $200 price range is pretty normal to see for these caliper covers and, again, in my opinion, offers a lot of bang for your buck. And given that a Big Brake appearance is a very aggressive side profile design.Moving along to the installation portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, simple enough for any novice to take care of in about an hour's worth of time in the driveway at home with a simple ratchet and socket set as well as a lug wrench. And with that said, I wanna point out that it will not fit four or six piston-equipped models and does require an 18-inch or larger wheel to get the job done considering the clearance. With that said, all you'll have to do is pop your wheel off, use the clip and bolt to attach it to your factory calipers, pop the wheel back on, repeat the process for the other three options, and you're good to go. Overall, an hour and a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.Well, just to quickly wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer V6 or EcoBoost Mustang and you're looking to capture an appearance similar to that of a Big Brake kit without actually breaking the bank on an actual kit, you might wanna check out the MGP Red Caliper Covers for the front and rear of your pony with the Tri-Bar Pony logo engraved into the materials, which of course are all available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Really dresses up the calipers
These caliper covers really make a difference. They show up real nice through the spokes of my 20" wheels. Installation was pretty easy and simple. I recommend that you make sure you don't push the stainless steel clips onto the calipers too far, it will make a very loud noise. It was easy to adjust the one set of clips that was making a noise. My wheels have wide enough spokes that I was able to reach through them and make the adjustment. Be sure to use the cardboard gauge to check the clearance of the clips and you won't have the noise problem. I purchased these from American Muscle as an open box item, at a very reduced price, they disclosed that the clips were missing. I contacted the manufacturer and they were able to sell me a complete set of clips at a very reasonable price. Even my wife says the ar looks so much nicer with these covers on! I definitely recommend these Caliper covers to everyone looking to dress up those ugly plain calipers.Helpful (0)

Makes the car look a lot better and ties everything together nicely. This is the second time I have purchased MGP’s products. Gave 4 stars because both times the fitment was a bit off. Pieces required bending or alteration in order to mount properly. Once they’re on, though, they are amazing!Helpful (0)

Great, but not perfect
The product itself looks amazing; however, the back two caliper covers on my stang ended up grinding on the inside of my rims. I think i can modify the back two caliper covers so this doesn't occur but paying 250$ on parts that caused damage to my rims isn't acceptable.Helpful (1)

Nice but takes a bet of work
As other have said the fronts went on with out a problem the back was a hole different story. After a hour of trying to get them to fit with out scraping, I went to google to see how to fix it and I did find out how to make it to work. Had to cut a 1/4 of a inch off them and now they do not scrap. They do look nice and I would recommend it but make sure you cut a 1/4 inch off the back clips so you do have the problem I hadHelpful (1)
Will this fit the GT base model which is 18" tire?
Hello! Unfortunately these MGP Red Caliper Covers w/ Tri-Bar Pony Logo will not fit a gt since the brakes are larger.
Hello. I have a 2016 Ecoboost Convertible Premium with P255/40R19 tires mounted in the 19 inch low profile floss black aluminum wheels. I don't have the performance package, but I'm not sure if the calipers are 2 or 4 piston. Aside from taking the brakes off, is there an easy way to tell? Thanks.
The 2016 Ecoboost Convertible Premiums came standard with 12.5" front and rear rotors with 2 piston calipers. There is an optional 13" rear brake rotor with single piston and 14" front brake rotor with 4 piston calipers. To confirm which package of brakes you have on your Mustang (standard or optional) please check with your dealership or handbook to confirm.
I have heard these will NOt fit wit the 20" Foundary Wheel package, is that the case?
I have the 20" foundry wheels and put them on but it scrapped the wheels. These covers won't work with those wheels.
Will these fit a stock 2017 Mustang Ecoboost? I saw a review comment that said they did not fit on the rear and they had to call the manufacturer to get the right clips.
These will fit a base Ecoboost with the standard 2 piston brakes and 18"or larger wheels. It will not be compatible with Ecoboosts with upgraded 4 or 6 Piston models.
I have a 2015 ecoboost 50 yr edition, my wheels are P255/40/19, will it work fine?
This requires use of the 2-piston calipers and 18" or larger wheels on 15-19 V6's and EcoBoosts.
As long as you do not have big brakes and since you have the 18" wheels these would work without a problem.
These MGP Red Caliper Covers will fit the standard Ecoboost Mustangs equipped with 19" wheels.
These covers will fit all 15-19 EcoBoost models equipped with the standard brakes. If the vehicle is equipped with the performance pack, this kit will be needed: https://www.americanmuscle.com/mgp-red-caliper-covers-w-tribar-pony-logo-front-rear-1517-ecoboost-w-performance.html
The MGP Caliper Covers will fit your 2015 V6 Mustang equipped with 19" wheels.
To confirm which package of brakes you have on your Mustang (standard or optional) please check with your dealership or handbook to confirm.
The MGP Caliper Covers require a wheel or 18" or larger in order to safely install. This will not safely clear your factory equipped 17" wheels.
We do have a product video here for reference: https://youtu.be/e2WryBzqHs4
Yes, these caliper covers are compatible with the factory wheels. However, we would recommend test fitting the calipers covers with your wheels as you may need a small spacer for clearance.
Yes, these caliper covers will fit all 15-18 standard ecoboost models equipped with the 2-piston brakes.
The MGP Red Caliper Covers will be compatible with 2018 Ecoboost Pony Package models.
