Well, the Stop Tech's have two piece slotted rotors. Less weight = less unsprung weight. I also think they the calipers just look beefier, and come in red. I'm sure they have similar stopping power, I just wanted a two piece.

$900 is a pretty good price, depending on what you are getting, but keep in mind you can buy the brand new FRPP 14" Brembo kit for $1,100 all day long. That includes front and rear braided stainless lines, all the new hardware needed, new front pads, and new pads for the back. (and of course the front rotors and calipers)

I did not notice where the intended use was clarified -- drag strip or road track? For drag strip or street you don't really "need" any of this, though they do look cool.

In a car as heavy and fast as a mustang, I don't think you can have too much braking ability. I opted for the BBK on my car because I always wanted Brembo brakes, felt that bigger brakes would be better than smaller, and I may take the car on a road course at some point in time.

I would say to go for it. I am curious to know whether the master cylinder on the BBK cars is different than that of the regular cars. If it is, personally, I'd rather go all in than just part of the way by buying the caliper/rotors, but not the MC. However, if the MC is the same between setups, sounds like the OP is getting a decent deal on some good brakes.
