    Review & Installation Video

    Hey guys, I'm Justin with, and this is my detailed look at the Ford Racing Brembo 6-Piston Brake Upgrade available for your 2005 to 2014 Mustang GT, Bullitt Boss 302 or GT500. So this kid from Ford Racing and Brembo should appeal to a few different types of owners. Now first and foremost, it's definitely gonna be for the S-197 owners out there who track their car frequently and want a big upgrade in stopping power over your factory setup. This statement is definitely geared toward the base GT owners, older Bullitt owners, things like that, as opposed to the Boss 302 or newer GT500 owners. But nevertheless, if you're looking for a solid all inclusive upgrade, this is definitely gonna be the ticket.That being said, S-197 owners who might not track their car at all, but still want that range of stopping power upgrade, this is also going to be a great option for you, especially if you're looking for something that is going to be completely baller behind your favorite set of wheels. Function over form is always a good thing, but in this case the form just happens to match the function. Again guys, this kit does include both brake setups for your front and rear here, and by the way, this is the same exact kit used on the '13 and '14 Shelby GT500s.Now let's first start with the front setup because this is obviously the centerpiece of this kit. Starting with these gigantic 6-piston Brembos here, powder coated black and finished off with that Brembo logo. Now these guys are gonna ride on top of these massive 15 inch, one piece vented rotors here, a ton more surface area which is gonna equate to better stopping power and better heat dissipation. Now if you guys didn't know, 75% of your car's braking duties are handled by your front brakes alone. So when you make this big of an upgrade, the difference should be immediately noticeable as a lot of our customers have pointed out on the site. Now if you do track your car regularly, this is gonna basically equal a big improvement in brake fade and a more consistent pedal lap after lap.In addition to that front setup, you are also receiving a solid upgrade for the rear of the car in the form of the 13.8 inch vented rotors here along with these single piston calipers. Now again guys, the front setup is handling most of the heavy lifting here so while the rear setup might look a little wimpy compared to these burly fronts, you have to keep in mind that this setup was enough to haul the '13 and '14 Shelbys from 60 to zero in roughly 101 feet. Now that's super car territory, guys, and while yes, you can probably argue some of that is due to the tires on that car, the kit I have on this table here with me definitely played a major role. So that covers pretty much the main components of the kit here, but as you can see, it does feature a lot of other stuff as this is an all inclusive kit. Your brand new front pads here are already pre-loaded in the 6-piston Brembos, rear pads are gonna be right here. You're looking at brand new axle flanges, dust shields, all new hardware, all grade A stuff, and then finally brand new front brake lines. Now if I did have one small nitpick with this entire kit, is that I would have liked to have seen stainless steel lines here for the front as this is a performance kit after all. But nevertheless, that's an easy and cheap upgrade if you wish to make it on your own.On the topic of price, guys, I think you're gonna find this kit offers a lot of bang for your buck, and the comments in the customer review section tend to back that up. Now when you are shopping other options on the site, whether it be from Roush, Wilwood Bear, whatever, those options are going to be far more expensive than this kit. And a lot of those options only take care of the front brakes. Now the options that are on the same page as this kit price-wise are only gonna offer a 4-piston brake as opposed to the 6-pistons with the Brembos here. So again to reiterate, to get a full kit here, all inclusive, for a name like Brembo and have a 6-piston caliper out front for south of 2Gs, mind you, really is quite a bargain.Installation here, guys, I'll be honest, not for the first time wrenchers out there because you will need to bleed the brakes properly in addition to mounting the kit to your S-197. So for that reason, I'll call it a two out of three wrench job on my difficulty meter. Not willing to go a full three out of three wrench job because, honestly, doing brakes isn't rocket science, but they are kind of important so you will need to know how to do them properly. Grab a buddy if you've never done them. Either way, figure a few hours in the garage from start to finish, a decent socket set, a decent wrench set, in addition to your bleeding tools, and don't forget your fresh brake fluid to complete the job.So a lot of times us Mustang owners are guilty of worrying about going faster without giving any consideration to the second part of that equation, stopping. If you're looking for a very solid brake upgrade kit for your S-197 for a price, it's gonna be very hard to beat given your options.

      Successfully installed on my V6

      After months of research and against the advice of everyone (including AM), I installed this upgrade on my V6 without problems or modifications. I couldn't find any reason why not given that the braking system on the S197 is exactly the same across except for the models without ABS. I have the pony package which carries over most GT features except the engine so I can't tell about the basic V6. I do can vouch that if you have a Pony Package with ABS you can install this kit. AM is loosing big on all those V6 customers by not researching this further. Installed alone in my garage along other upgrades. Its not necessary but I took the differential out to work better and not having to mess with differential oil. Highly recommended.

      Ford Brembo Brakes

      I installed the Ford Brembo racing brake kit in one afternoon. What a difference it made in stopping. With the nitro oversized tires, the mustang stops on a dime.

      Lots of Dust

      Great look and stopping power but, these brakes put off a large amount of brake dust. Still a quality product in my book.

      Massive upgrade over stock

      the 6 pistons up front are fantastic! They handled great on the track and provided a much better feel and stopping distance compared to stock. The rears brakes are still the single piston and nearly identical to stock. Would have been nice to have better upgrade for those too but given the massive price different between this and other big brake upgrades its worth it. You do need to pull the rear axles to install rear brakes, but this gives you a perfect chance to upgrade your rear gear or change the fluid. you do need get a new gasket for that as well.

      The Brembo 6-Piston upgrade kit is great. Everything fit well and the price is very fair. I purchased them for the occasional road course outing. I just came back from one and they worked flawlessly. I highly recommend them.

      Brembo Big Brake Package

      For starters this is an awesome and much needed upgrade if your going to boost your car. Nice to go fast but better if you can stop fast too! Overal take on the install was a pretty easy install until you get to the rears. Which you have to remove the rear axles in order to change the rear brake caliper brackets. Oh and don't forget the part of removing the rearend cover to access the c clip that has to come out to take the axles out. Just do your homework and you'll be fine.

      Plan ahead for a completed job

      The kit is as advertised and works well. Since the kit does not come with stainless lines, I sourced them from Sifflers. Since you have to pull the rear axles I upgraded the fluid to Royal Purple and do not forget the friction modifier. Also installed the Ford Racing rear end cover. This is also the best time to change the brake fluid. After much research I used the MOTUL 600 RBF. Everything is available from AM except the brake lines and brake fluid.

      They are absolutely amazing

      I bought these for my fbo 2014 5.0 and the change is just amazing. Wow! The stopping power on these bad boys is extreme. They rotors are somewhat heavy but I didn't expect them to be light since they're a high perfomance track brake system. They didn't slow me down bcs the weight differnce is just not significant. My cousin installed them for me in 35-40 minutes. Easy work because instructions weren't even needed; they're brakes. I am truly happy with my purchase.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Which fluids will I need to purchase when changing into these new brakes?

    • When installing the Ford Performance Brembo 6-Piston Brake Upgrade Kit it is a good idea to change the brake fluid with fresh DOT3 Brake fluid, though DOT4 or synthetic DOT3 can be substituted depending on your needs. Racing applications where high heat is expected, DOT4 is more ideal due to its higher boiling point.

    So I have been debating whether or not to purchase this kit due to the rotors that come with it. Later down the line when it is necessary to replace them, are the standard rotors my only option? Also if there are more rotors that will fit, do you carry them/recommendations?

    • You can replace these rotors with any rotors that will fit a 2013-2014 GT500. We carry a few different rotors that will fit here:
