With our 2014 Mustang GT project getting serious handling and performance parts thrown at it, we had to do something about those stock non-Brembo brakes! We turned to Ford Racing and installed one of their M-2300-S 14” Brembo brake kits on our project car. We also figured we would take the time to walk you through the installation process as well. So be sure to watch the video as we show you how to drastically improve the brakes on your 2005-14 Mustang!
The Ford Racing M-2300-S Brake Kit includes the 4 piston Brembo brake calipers, 14” front brake rotors, a new brake hose set and a set of rear brake pads. This kit provides you with improved stopping power and enhanced styling by ditching those small and ugly factory brakes. It is a great upgrade for any Mustang V6 or GT without the Brembo package.
The kit does require 18” wheels for proper clearance. Be sure to click on the link below to shop our complete line of Mustang Performance Brake Kits!
