Joe from Crescent motorsport already made a cheap EF/EL brake upgrade...was like $1900....could be less depending on if you already had some mods done like braided brake lines etc...but it included 330mm rotors etc from mustands I think and 4 pot callipers....there were ABS issues but I recall Brett(Terroristghia) saying they had been resolved...

beats paying $2600-$3000 for the cebco kit

mind you both the above prices are for front kits only.....that prices isnt for the whole car...its be times 2. No brake upgrade is cheap

I'll rephrase the last bit....no major brake upgrade is cheap where its the entire kit and kaboodle such as callippers etc.....like the jump from the stock ford brake setup in the AU/BA/BFs from stock to FPV(where available) and up to PBR,AP Racing,Cebco and Brembo's.....

propbably not many for an XF, but considering that kit goes right back to XR, there's plenty of people doign up those early model falcons that that would be great for!

i got a ford au ute had piss single spot front calipers when i got it a year ago had the car 4 2 weeks n warped the a** out of the disc. i knew they had to go. up graded to ba xr8 .not that easy had to change most of front suspension to ba but was worth it , changed the ute completely not only does it brake better but handles way better to. since i have only changed pads once , other than that not a drama. it cost me under a grand and would recomend it to any one with a au .if u r having trouble finding parts pm me i can send u where i got mine ( sure if i can post non sponser co name) :!:

I emailed that ebay seller and he said he will be doing similar e-series kits in a few weeks.

I've been emailing Joe regarding his kits for the past 6months. A few weeks ago he said he was too busy doing gas conversions and had put the brake kits on hold.
