Having just purchased an FBT with the 330mm one piece discs and 2 piston calipers - I was wondering how hard is it to get quality bits to build another set. Are the spindles, calipers and discs available from Ford or elsewhere (pt numbers????) and was the twin piston caliper used on any other variation (AU TE's maybe)?

far as i know supposedly brembo but its very hard to get the stuff of them

but mustang 94/95 parts, eg spindles/rotors/calipers will fit direct

but thats "supposed" not 100% sure, Joe from Crescent Motorsports and I are working on getting the parts into aus and fitting/selling here in SYd/around aus for under the $1k mark

I think you will find they are twin piston PBR callipers like the GT.

Brembo I think made its first appearance in AUII?

XR8Chic would know if Mustang spindles etc swap over, pretty sure Kelli is using twin piston Mustang callipers.

New Mustangs have gone backwards and use McPherson struts, so those brakes wont be a option.

What I am asking is not for aftermarket stuff - I could go to Cebco and get that - I am chasing the "Tickford" winged calipers and other GT/FBT specifics.

Hi Shane,
I have chased up PBR about the calipers etc.
Dont have them anymore.
You will have to hunt around for a damaged GT (good luck)
Ford were even asking $700 per front upright :shock:

Maybe this could be a good opportunity for someone with engineering knowledge to come up with a design or adaptor plate that can fit the AU twin piston setup onto a std or slightly modified upright.
There are heaps of twin piston calipers sitting around at the wreckers that can be picked up for a good price.

But if Fuzion can get the Mustang setup here for around 1K, that is better than paying Cebco 2.2K for the same thing.

Keep us posted Fuzion, those mustang calipers souns like a good mod.

Hmm... under $1k. i would be very interested in bigger brakes for the eb if they can be made to fit the earlier e-series. i dont really want to cough up $2200+freight for a cebco kit if i dont have to.

I might look into adapting the AU twin piston calipers to the E series...wouldnt mind a set on my EF XR8.. are they twin spots or four spot piston calipers...?Im currently in the process of making some adaptor plates to fit these massive BREMBO race calipers onto a mustang,and still fit the 15" rims...but I've come thru with the goods...all the other engineering shops said it couldnt be done...

Great news mate :D

With the amount of Resources we have pooled within this Forum I cant see why we cant
all get together on a few projects that could benefit us all mutually :wink:

Hi All I am also trying to source a decent brake conversion for my ED XR-6. Any information you can give, or if you are trying to get enough interest in sourcing either locally or in the states count me in!!
I am new to FORDMODS only perousing each thread but this has caught my eye, and would definately be interested!! I have tried to source GT brakes and uprights from Ford .They said OBSOLETE no longer available. Regards loco.........
