Should I get brembos?
So I was considering getting brembos for my stang after she comes out of hibernation since I am supercharged. I know it seems like a no-brainer to get a big brake kit since I am making 550 rwhp but I've read some other threads on here about the stock brakes vs the brembos and it seems that the conclusion is that unless you are autocrossing the car (which I wont be), they are basically just for looks and won't really help you stop quicker. My car is 95% street driven with once or twice a year at the drag strip and that's about it. Currently I've taken the stock brake system to its limits by upgrading the pads, rotors, fluid and lines (stoptech slotted rotors, hawk hps pads, pentosin DOT4 LV, and Russel SS lines). The brakes feel better than they were stock, but I still feel like there could be room for improvement. I like the hawk hps pads but they need a little bit of warming up before they bite good. I could also probably go with a better brake fluid but the cap said DOT4 LV and pentosin was the only manufacturer I could find that made this. I'm guessing that running regular DOT4 with a higher boiling point would be better because the LV is for winter with lower temps and I don't drive my stang during the winter anyways so I could probably go to something like Motul or ATE with a higher boiling point.
Anyways, back to the original question, my only reasons currently for not upgrading are:
1) I have a base auto that came with a spare tire and would not be able to use it in the front because of the clearance with the brembos.
2) When my car is in storage I put the stock 18x8 rims back on which would not fit the brembos without running wheel spacers.
3) I actually had originally tried to upgrade to the brembo 4 piston kit from american muscle when I first installed my procharger but UPS kept damaging the calipers because of the poor packaging from ford racing. If I decide to buy this kit again I would probably go with the vorshlag kit or someone who ships Fedex because in my experience UPS is terrible when it comes to damaging packages.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
