Dont need fancy gear like that and that item listed there is second hand and how many of them can you get at that price, only that 1 there LOL

Stick to what i mentioned and everyone will walk away happy as it dosent cost a fortune.

I can find a brake joint that can back us all up in regards to rotors,calipers, pads and braided lines so we can all get a cheap kit happeneing.

A Ford territory rotor is about 330mm so either use a 322mm rotor or the territory rotor and BF XR caliper, but just use the cheaper rotor so get out of it cheaper unless its only a small cost difference for the territory rotor.

OK so the Territory caliper is a 2 pot and looks almost the same as the blue ones in the ebay link i posted.

Is that right.

Territory caliper and BF XR caliper are both 2 spot but dont know if that blue 1 is also twin spot.

Just forget about that rotor and caliper setup on ebay as its a premium rotor as u can see from the slots and im very sure those rotors are expensive so just forget about that dude.

Stick to what i have suggested for parts as thats the cheapest components that have great value for money in regards to performance.

Hopper stoppers use the parts i mentioned on a few brakes kits and i know this for a fact :D

The 322mm or 330mm paired with twin spot caliper has braking power upto 2.5 tones according to hopper stoppers but i believe 2 tones is about right

Ok cool i want something good i am mainly research at this stage it will be a little while before i buy i just went searching and could not find much.
I was think of getting the EL GT calipers mainly because of the ford logos on it which look good and suit the car the FPV ones are ok too but the tickford ones are what i was wanting.
If i put that aside i could paint the territory ones and get some stickers.
Does any of these kits need adjustment to the brake booster/reservoirs ports.

U ask for all the nice looking stuff but u have to pay for it dude LOL

Adjustments to booster should not happen, we all want a kit to bolt on and work even ABS so thats when it starts to get trickly.

I work on falcons and territory's all the time and the brake setups are much different between the cars.

Check out this. I am wanting to do the same conversion on my car.

Surely if someone else has done it before then it can be done again????
