Features & Details

  • Increased Stopping Power
  • Upgrades V6 Front Rotors to the Larger GT Rotors
  • Easy Install, No Bleeding Required
  • Reuses Existing Calipers and Brake Pads
  • Fits 2005 to 2010 V6 Mustangs
Larger Rotors for Bigger Braking Force. Made to outfit your 2005-2010 V6 Mustang with the superior braking components of the GT, the Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit works with 17” wheels or larger on your ‘Stang. Vented for cooling, these rotors are unlikely to suffer overheating and the resultant brake fade. They also offer improved leverage and torque to boost the stopping power of your Mustang’s brakes.

Ford Manufacture for High Performance. Centered around a pair of plain cast iron rotors, the Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit is built for both effectiveness and affordability. A genuine Ford part, its fit and dimensions are precisely matched to the needs of the Mustang. The design includes a vented interior with curved vanes for superior cooling during hard driving action.

Improved Airflow to Cut Brake Fading. Strong and straightforward, the Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit is made to perform better than stock – mostly through its increased diameter. A plain rotor without drilling or slotting, this component boosts the leverage and torque applied to the wheel when you step on the brake pedal, thus creating better stopping powre and a shorter stopping distance. The air flows through the rotors’ vents, cooling the metal off, so that gases won’t form on the surface and the brake fluids won’t boil, thus preventing brake fade.

Fits 17” Wheels or Bigger. Needing no brake bleeding for fitment, the Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit bolts onto your Mustang easily. The kit requires use of 17” diameter wheels or larger. You will also need to relocate the calipers with the included caliper relocation brackets.

Includes Rotors, Brackets, Hardware. This Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit consists of (2) 12.4” plain front rotors, (2) caliper relocation brackets, and the necessary installation hardware.

Lifetime Warranty Coverage. The Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit comes with a limited lifetime warranty against defects from the manufacturer.

Application. This Ford Racing Front Rotor Upgrade Kit is designed for use on all 2005 to 2010 V6 Mustangs with the factory 11.5" front rotors. Technical Note. The Ford Racing V6 Front Rotor Upgrade Kit requires the use of 17" or larger wheels for correct caliper clearance.

Technical Note. The Ford Racing V6 Front Rotor Upgrade Kit requires the use of 17" or larger wheels for correct caliper clearance.

What is the recommended method for cleaning off the new rotor's anti-rust coating?

    Looks better in the wheel

    I have the 18" Saleen wheels from here and the stock v6 rotors looked really undersized. better stopping power but still not a huge difference. Woud I buy them again/ suggest them? Oh yeah not a doubt.

    Great way to improve performance and appearance

    Easy install. Took me about 2 hrs, and it only took me that long because I had to paint the the Caliper bracket to match my Caliper. Great stopping power. Super happy with this product.

    Much needed Maintenance

    Definitely what the doctor ordered. The old rotors from the v6 model were seriously inadequate post V8 swap. This kit did the trick for what I needed it for. They clear the 15-17 gt mustang performance pack wheels with no issues of inside rubbing and I can tell there is a lot less brake fade and better stopping power that is comparable to a stock GT mustang if not slightly better. The install was easy at only 15-20 minutes per side and has all the needed hardware so you don't have to reuse old bolts.

    A must have for sixxers!

    I never figured out WHY Ford chose to put SMALLER rotors on the front of V6's... As soon as you get bigger wheels, you really feel the difference! I got this kit for my daughter's 05. (NO, I'm not fronting! My DD is a 98 V6) Anyway, it took no longer than a standard brake job, and reuses the calipers. It stops better now, because you've increased the "leverage" of the brakes by moving the caliper closer to the tire. Highly recommend! ~ Carmine

    Exactly What I Thought I'd Get

    After determining that I required new brakes for my daily driver, I decided to do an upgrade over the stock brakes. I was pleasantly pleased with the packaging, and with the contents of the box, which included all the required hardware, to include all new bolts and fittings. After the install, which is quite easy and a proper break-in for the rotors, the stopping power is noticeably better. Much thanks to AM.

    GT Rotor Upgrade

    When your rotors go bad you will end up spending at least $100 for a new set so why not put in the couple extra bucks and get bigger, more powerful rotors and brackets. Personally i wanted a good set of drilled and slotted rootrs and they are hard to find for V6. This way when these get worn over time, i can upgrade to any GT rotors of my choice. Also i had steering wheel shaking under hard stopping pressure and this fixed it right away. Good Buy. Worth the money!.

    Excellent budget upgrade for the V6

    I recently bought bigger rims for my '05 V6 and the stock brakes were not stopping as good as they should have after the change. After reading a bunch of posts on forums and reading the reviews here, I decided to grab these. Now it wasn't a huge change but it's definitely A LOT better, I can stop when I want to now! If your a V6 owner and your changing rims, adding a bit more horses, etc etc, this upgrade that worth it.

    12.4" brake upgrade

    My stock brakes were worn out, so I took my car to a shop to get everything replaced. I was quoted $200 to get the same wimpy and tiny sized front rotors that come stock on our V6. I then knew I had to resort to AM for another solution. Lo and behold, they carry this brake kit that gives you the bigger GT rotors and at a lower price. Knowing that my car is no longer stock, I had to increase the braking power to make up for the extra HP. The shop installed it in about 15 minutes and they were telling me how great they were. This kit comes with everything you need. Under normal driving, they feel just about the same. I then decided to really test them out. I hit 60 mph and pushed the brakes hard and right away I felt a huge difference in stopping power! The brakes no longer struggle to put a halt on this pony. And the big brakes look gives the car more appeal! I highly recommend this brake kit if your car is not stock. Thanks, AM!

    must have

    Specifically, V6 owners who add horses, and increase tire size, over 17 inches, my car no longer feels like its going to slide through the brakes, I did this upgrade with new Hawk ceramic pads, although the original pads had plenty of bite left, the increased surface of the rotor, stops the car faster, and the brakes stay cooler.

    Now I can stop when I want

    Before with the original brakes I had trouble stopping. When I would try to slow down from higher speeds I would get a vibration through the car as it would "try" to slow down. These bigger brakes should've come stock on v6 mustangs, but it's definitely worth it if you drive fast!

    Definitely feel more bite than the old rotors and under hard braking the car comes to stop in less time and distance :). Next upgrade is the stainless steel lines that should make it even better!!!!

    Noticeable difference

    Bought these awhile back when my stock rotors were going out. The car would shake, particularly the side mirrors and steering wheel. I decided it was time for a new pair and why not upgrade to GT sized ones. I noticed a huge improvement in stopping and braking was much smoother. Nothing to dislike about the upgrade kit, came with everything you need to install them.

    V6 Brake Upgrade

    This product fits well and looks nice. Gives the v6 the big strong breaks look. Not much of a difference in stopping power though but worth the price if you need new brakes and rotors.

    These rotors should have been factory standard on the V6.

    Fit perfect, More expensive than replacing with the stock size rotors but was worth the extra $$ for the improved braking and looks.

    Great product.

    The upgrade kit does what is intended. The rotors came on time but the package was missing two of the four caliper screws that should have been in the box. That was not a problem as the existing stock caliper screws were a fit. The rotors were covered with an anti rust coating that had to be cleaned off with solvent before the install. There were no instructions but I was guided by a friend who has done a few mods in his time. You will need to look up the torque settings for the screws. Look out for the sharp points on the caliper springs when you slide the brake pads in.
