Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com taking a closer look at Power Stop's Z26 Street Warrior cross-drilled front and rear brake rotor and ceramic pad kit, available for '94 to 2014 Mustangs. Power Stop is a company that produces quality braking components with the goal of giving you increased stopping power for an affordable price. We've had some experience with Power Stop's brake package for the newer Mustang on our 2014 project car build, Project Coyote. And you can check out that build by clicking on the project cars and video tab on the home page of the website. While you're there, check out some of our other project car builds along with exciting Mustang news, and of course, more in depth product overviews.The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior kit, as I mentioned earlier, is available for just about all '94 to 2014 Mustangs including the '11 to '14 Brembo equipped cars. Now this is a really cost effective kit, especially when you consider what you're getting. The Power Stop includes the front and rear cross drilled and slotted rotors, in addition to the brand new carbon fiber infused ceramic pads for all four corners. American Muscle also sells all of these same components individually as well, so you can pick up what you need without purchasing the entire kit if need be.Now that you guys know what's included, let's break down the components a little further starting with the rotors. Now as I mentioned earlier, you're getting two front and two rear rotors with the kit. And as you can see, they're both drilled and slotted. Having a drilled and slotted rotor like this will be beneficial because it will reduce the heat in your brakes that may lead to excessive brake feed after a few repetitive hard stops. The rotors have bevel drill holes to keep temps down during use, as well as rounded slots to help maintain a clear contact patch for the pad and the rotor. The rotors have also been silver zinc plated to help prevent any possible rust or corrosion, ensuring that the rotors will look good for years to come.And speaking of looking good, performance benefits aside, a set of drill and slotted rotors look killer. And they do add a more aggressive look to your Mustang, especially if you have a wheel design like the MMD 551C. Or a set of AMRs. Or Bullitts, for instance, where you can really see a lot of the rotor. In fact, you can head back to the site if you're not there already, to check out some customer- submitted reviews and images of this Power Stop kit installed on a wide variety of Mustangs. As for the pads, the Power Stop kit utilizes a carbon fiber infused ceramic pad, which will help you in a couple of different ways. For starters, the ceramic compound will increase the overall stopping power by allowing the pads to handle higher brake temperatures with less heat fade. The ceramic compound in this pad will also be quiet and produce less dust when compared to other materials, keeping your wheels cleaner in the process. As for the install, you'll need some basic hand tools along with a jack or a lift. Since you're tackling all four corners, it might take you a few hours, about three or so, to get the job done. The kit also includes all the necessary hardware making the install that much easier. One very important step. Whenever installing a new set of rotors and pads, it is very important to follow the manufacturer's bleeding process and braking procedures just to get the optimal performance and wear from your new setup. If you're looking for brakes that will keep up with your performance base driving at a very affordable price, then be sure to check out a Power Stop Z26 brake rotor and ceramic pad kit for your '94 to 2014 Mustang, available here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Great breaks that look good too
These breaks are great. I cant tell how much better they are than the stock ones (my breaks were very worn when I bought the car). I took the breaks to my local shop and they very quickly installed them. The breaks were very easy to break in and dont make any noise. Overall I am very happy with the breaks and the look of them.Helpful (0)

Well worth the cost
They may not have the same look as the more expensive brands, but for the money there is no comparison. They have great stopping power and are very simple to install. Just remember to have a large C clamp handy. My brake kit arrived on time and was well packaged. I can’t say enough about these brakes and will recommend them to anyone I come across.Helpful (0)

I am a novice at DIY mechanic. This was very simple and worth the time. The only thing not mentioned in video is the placement of brake hardware. These little clips are side specific. please excuse me not knowing this but as a novice DIY mechanic I like to know these things in advance. Otherwise, this is a fun and easy upgrade. Next are my red caliper upgrade.Helpful (1)

Using 15 and 17mm wrenches/ratchets. Should take someone who's changed pads/rotors and hour and a half-2 hours...unless you clean/paint your calipers also. They definitely stop you harder.Helpful (0)

They look fantastic on my car and the breaking is greatly improved over the stock. It has much more bite and I feel a lot better driving around in them.Helpful (0)

Me and my son
I bought this set for my son’s 24th birthday present. This was his first brake job and he did great. The fit and finish of the pads and rotors were excellent. Stopping, as my son stated, “Is like a dream!” Very nice product. The zinc coated rotors should be looking great for a long time.Helpful (2)
What size are these rotors?
They're the same size as stock. They work well and look nice.
Are these lighter than OEM
Although there will not be any significant difference in weight between these and OEM rotors, there will be a noticeable improvement in stopping power and fade resistance with the Power Stop kit.
Do I need to change my calipers too, or will the factory 2014 V6 mustang calipers work with this kit?
This is compatible with stock calipers.
Fits without Brembo calipers, how do I find out if my mustang came equipped with brembo calipers?
The Brembo Brakes were available on GT, GT500 and Boss Mustangs only. Unless you have an aftermarket Brembo brake kit, your V6 should have no issue with this kit.
How is the noise if any when braking???
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit should not feature any noise when braking.
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit's life expectancy will vary on driving behavior and conditions - so it would be difficult to provide a life expectancy.
With the Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit and any other brake pad and rotor kits, mileage will vary based on driving style, vehicle weight, wheel and tire size, and a number of other factors.
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor are the same size as the OEM Rotors on your 2011 V6.
This kit will fit your vehicle as long as you do not have the big Brembo brakes installed. This kit will work on a 2011 V6 equipped with the Performance Package.
Both brakes will last about the same depending on how you use them. The main difference between the two will be the Z26 offers better stopping power.
The brake pads in this kit will be the Z26 Extreme Carbon Fiber Infused Ceramic Brake Pads.
We do offer the pads separately. The front pads included in this kit are the Power Stop Z26 Extreme Performance Ceramic Brake Pads - Front Pair (11-14 GT, V6), item # 384201, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/powerstop-z26-front-pads-1114gtv6.html). The rear break pads included in this kit are the Power Stop Z26 Extreme Performance Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (11-14 All), item # 384206, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/powerstop-z26-rear-pads-1114.html).
these hold up very well and clean pretty easy but the stopping is outstanding. I have these on my 07 gt for about 2 years no rust on the bolt area yet,night and day stopping performance over the stock rotors.
yes they will
This will fit the 2014 V6 Mustangs as long as you don't have the Brembo calipers. These pads and rotors are designed for use with the stock calipers.
