Review & Install Video

Hey guys, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. This is my detailed overview of the Ford Racing SVT front brake upgrade available for your 2005 to 2014 V6 and GT Mustang. All right, guys, this overview is going to cover a few basic topics - what you can expect as far as components with this kit, what you can expect as far as benefits or performance, and then finally a quick little walkthrough through the install. Guys, obviously you are going to be replacing both your calipers, your rotors and even some brake lines here in addition to bleeding the brakes, so I'm going to give this one a strong two out of three wrenches on my overall scale of difficulty with a little bit more detail coming up later on. All right, guys, this kit is going to be for the S197 V6 and GT owners out there looking to upgrade your factory base brakes with a nice big brake kit here from a trusted name like Ford Racing and Brembo, and one that's ultimately going to be one of the most affordable here on the site. Obviously, guys, this is something that should appeal to just about anyone, right, whether you're a hardcore track guy or even just a casual weekend enthusiast because braking is something you really never want to skimp on or overlook. This is the exact same setup you're going to find on the 2007 to 2009 Shelby GT500 and is very similar to the one used on the 2011 and up Brembo cars. Ford has basically taken all of the guesswork out of assembling a brake kit for you and has even thrown in some extras. They're giving you a 100% bolt on complete kit that, again, is just going to give you everything you need to get up and running. With that said, let's break down some of the individual components of this kit. Even though this is technically a Ford Racing deal here, I think the centerpiece of the kit without a doubt are the large four piston aluminum calipers here from Brembo. Again, the same exact kit are Brembos used to haul down those early Shelbys from speed. I'd say they do so pretty effectively. Now, when shopping for aftermarket big brake kits for your S197, I'd say a majority are going to include some kind of four piston calipers for the front. However, if you do have the money to burn, there are six piston options available out there. But obviously, those are going to cost a lot more. Nevertheless, the four piston options here from Brembo that are included with this kit are going to be a very solid performer and are probably more than enough for the majority of owners out there, no matter what you really subject your ride to. That's really no surprise because Brembo has been making braking components for over four decades now. They're obviously going to be one of the leaders in the world of aftermarket and even factory braking, supplying brake components to F1 cars, Mustangs and everything in between really. So you know these things are going to be built to perform and they're going to be built very well. Besides providing plenty of stopping power, these calipers are going to look pretty sharp behind your favorite set of wheels thanks to the anodized black finish that will keep these things looking good for years to come. Between you and me, this is what Ford should have done on the '11 to '14 Brembo cars instead of using that ugly matte gray finish, but I digress. Those 4 piston Brembos are going to be riding on the rather large 14 inch 1 piece vented rotors, again, another part found on the factory 2007 to 2009 Shelby GT500s. These things are going to provide a lot more surface area equaling better stopping power and better heat dissipation, which is really what you want, because again, guys, 75% of your braking duties on your Mustang are handled by the front brakes alone. When you're making this kind of upgrade or this kind of improvement, the difference should be pretty noticeable right away. That's what a lot of our customers have pointed out in the customer review section. This is really important as well for you track guys, because again, if you have the factory base brakes still on the car, you've probably noticed a whole bunch of fade in stock form. These brakes here from Brembo and Ford Racing should greatly reduce some of that fade and ultimately provide a more consistent pedal feel lap after lap. Wrapping up the front setup here, guys, these Brembos will come preloaded with brand-new Motorcraft pads, again, the same pad used on the Shelby GT500. I'm guessing some of you are sensing a trend here. But ultimately, that is nice. Again, they're preloaded, ready to rock and roll for you. Ford Racing also throws in brand new dust shields and brand-new hardware. Again, a nice touch. It should help eliminate any unexpected trips to the local hardware or auto parts store. Let's quickly shift gears and talk about some of the extras included with this kit because, again, this is a 100% complete kit from Ford Racing. They do toss in some extras that kind of sweeten the deal a little bit for prospective buyers out there. First on the plate, they've included brand-new Goodridge stainless steel lines for both the front and rear, which is awesome and a huge upgrade over those rubber factory lines. These are going to provide a firmer pedal, maybe a little bit more consistent of a brake pedal as well, and at the end of the day, guys, they're going to be far more durable than those rubber lines. In addition to the Goodridge stainless steel lines for both front and rear, Ford Racing is also tossing in brand-new rear pads as well with this setup, which again is a nice little extra. Same exact pad compound as the GT500 fronts which are included with the Brembo calipers. Basically everything with this kit, guys, is 100% fresh and brand-new and ready to rock and roll. The only thing that's missing here with this kit is a brand-new set of rear rotors, which you could do on your own for pretty cheap. Now, let's talk about some of the other details when running a kit like this from Ford Racing, the first of which is actually pretty important. You can only use this big brake setup from Ford Racing on cars equipped with ABS or anti-lock brakes. But for a majority of you guys watching this at home, it shouldn't be an issue. Secondly, guys, when upgrading your brakes to a larger brake kit such as this, wheel fitment will become an issue. Personally, I recommend running a 19 by 9 wheel or larger such as the Brembo wheel, for instance, an AMR Boss style wheel or obviously a GT500 style wheel. Guys have run 18 by 9 wheels and gotten them to fit with this kit, such as the GT500 wheel for instance, but overall I'd personally recommend sticking with a 19-inch wheel or larger just to be on the safe side. Finally, guys, you cannot use any Bullitt wheels with this kit or the FR500 wheels. On the topic of price, the Ford Racing SVT brake upgrade kit is going to ring in right around $1000 here, which I think is really awesome, especially when you consider the quality components and the extras that Ford Racing is throwing in. Compare that to some of your other options here on the site. The Ford Racing SVT kit will be one of your most affordable options compared to those other options which can range anywhere from $1500 to $4000. Again, guys, you're getting a ton of bang for your buck with this kit. As for the install, well, like I mentioned earlier in this video, guys, there is a fair amount of work to get this kit installed. You will have to bleed the brake system as well. If this is something you don't feel comfortable with, definitely don't be afraid to leave this one up to your local professional shop, as brakes are obviously pretty important. On the other hand, guys, if you prefer to do all of your own work and are handy with a wrench, just leave yourself a few hours in the shop or garage, maybe a half a day to get this one tackled. Again, I'm going to call it two out of three wrenches on my overall scale of difficulty. As you might expect, there will be a fair amount of tools needed to complete this install in addition to a jack and jack stands or a lift, because all four wheels and tires will need to be removed in order to gain access to the calipers and rotors, which of course will be removed as well. Again, guys, since you are doing rear pads with this kit, just make sure you have a caliper tool on hand or something similar to help you spin that piston down and make room for those new pads. Finally, you're going to want to make sure you have some nice fresh brake fluid on hand before getting started with this install and all of your tools needed to help you bleed the brakes themselves, basically just a wrench and a clear tube if you're doing it with a buddy or a one man bleeding tool or vacuum bleeder if you're flying solo with this install. All right, guys, the Ford Racing SVT front brake upgrade is really just going to be an awesome choice for any S197 GT or V6 owner out there looking to drastically improve the stopping power on his or her ride, maybe add a little bit more bling behind those front wheels, and doing so for a price that is very hard to beat here on the site. That's my review of the Ford Racing SVT upgrade which you can find right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Great brakes, but please do your research

    Five stars for looks and stopping power. But there is a catch. I have a 2012 V6 Performance Package. The front wheels will NOT fit over the stock 19" wheels. Diameter is not the issue, it is the width of that big Brembo caliper. I had to run 25mm spacers to get the wheels to fit. And since spacers are not recommended for front wheels, I will eventually have to buy new rims. That was an unexpected cost. However, the brakes do look fantastic on the front and increase braking confidence. I look forward to eventually replacing the 14" rotors with cross-drilled ones after the ones that came with the kit wear out. And once I get new wheels I look forward to really testing them on an autocross course. But, again, if you have a 2012 v6 performance package, either plan to get new wheels or consider other options. American Muscle did work to help with some of the headaches associated with this installation. Therefore I am still (despite this one frustrating experience) a big fan of the company.

    Nice improvement in performance and aesthetics!

    Haven't tracked these yet however a lot of forums have said there is little to no noticeable brake fade even in repetitive high-load scenarios. They are a huge improvement over the factory system. Throw a set of Konis on it after this and you're ready to add some ponies. Took me a day to install but that was because I was coating my rear calipers gloss black.

    Nice kit, bad instructions

    Kit fit nicely on 19” SVE series 3 wheels. The Instructions are full of black and white low quality photos and also not specific on some of the important details. For instance, to depress the rear caliper you need a keyed brake tool kit.

    Great product, fits perfect.

    Took my time to do the install on a Saturday afternoon. My only suggestion is that the instructions change the torque amount on the banjo bolts to coincide with the aftermarket steel lines included in the kit. 12 - 15 ft. lbs. max torque as the bolts are not too beefy or you'll snap the head off as I did with my first try. Did a little research online on Goodridge brake lines which gave me the torque requirements. Very happy with the braking ability now, plus it looks cool.

    As per the description this kit does not fit. With the proper wheels described , wheels will not clear the caliper with out using spacers. If I had known I needed spacers I would not have bought this kit. And why does the description not list the need for wheel spacers?

    Upgrade 2010 Mustang

    This is a must if you have a a Supercharged Mustang. I found the brakes to work up to Fords billing of this Kit M 2300-s. I had to slow down very fast on the Expressway​, and they worked A . I also found no brake fade with the stainless steel brake lines. One thing I see as a must, is replace the rear stock rotors with new rotors. This way all is NEW. I did stock Ford OEM. Very pleased .

    Kit is heavy ! Pad material is questionable. Would say you're buying this kit for the calipers. Everything else can be discarded. I returned mine due to terrible shipping logistics probably not due to A.M. Will bite the bullit to buy a lighter , non OEM , after market kit for front and rear. Not available on this site. With the average big brake upgrade kit in the $2k range , let's say you get what you pay for with this one.

    This was a relatively easy install with great results. Plug and play! These are the same brakes that are on the '12-'13 BOSS mustangs and pre-2013 GT500's. Similar brake pedal feel for normal braking, but less leg pressure is required for the more spirited hard stops.
