Review & Install Video
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.
