Budget front brake upgrade kit??

Looking to upgrade my front brakes; came across this kit. It uses the existing calipers (has a bracket to raise them higher) with larger 14" rotors. Think it's any good?

That's actually the first I have seen of that and that's pretty cool actually. Hammerdown has a writeup he did on using the 13.2" rotor off of the 2011's and up on our cars. He did all the ground work and I THINK it was only like $200 for the whole setup....don't quote me. You can look at hammerdown's profile and look at the threads he has started and find it easily.

$250 for everything.

If I recall correctly from the thread you mentioned, the 2011+ cars use the same caliper and maybe even use the same pads as our cars so all you really need to do the upgrade is the caliper brackets and the rotors (IIRC the calipers have different part numbers in ford's system but are identical otherwise)... but you can order a full take-off from Roush for $250 as linked above to make sure you have everything.

I'm due a set of brakes soon myself and have been contemplating this upgrade, but my problem is that my OEM 17" wheels won't clear the 13.2" brakes. Hopefully I can get another 5-10k miles out of my current brakes and can delay that project until the spring when I planned on buying new wheels anyway.

I suppose we've spent enough time derailing this thread now?
