2007 Mustang GT stock brakes and FI help

07 GT non daily driver,non track car.

About to go FI and was wondering if stock brakes will do or should I upgrade to maybe some slotted rotors and Hawk pads?

Better pads is a good first step. I still use all OEM stuff and haven't really ran into a problem. Its not as nice as a race set up but it is very functional. Keep the stock rotors for now. They are cheap and easy to replace.

It'll help a little. The only way to really improve braking would be to go to a big brake kit.

your improving the go power, so you should also improve the stoping power.

Has your driving changed that much over stock? Yes you have more power but if your foot is not in the loud pedal, it should'nt make a big difference unless your driving 120+.

I felt improved braking performance by using drilled + slotted rotors and better pads. Drilled rotors will break (one of mine already has) get ones with a warranty is my suggestion if you do that, otherwise there are slotted ones that will be just as good.

It's true though, big brakes are your best bet for large increases in stopping power..
