People have been asking about putting 2015 brakes on the SN95, so I thought I’d just go for it. Here’s the best part:
Total cost was under $1000!
S550 Calipers – $100 each (+$50 core)
Rotors (2x): Blanks $60 ea from an auto parts store, slotted $100 ea from StopTech.
FTR Brembo Kit – $350
Stainless Brake Lines – $95
Pads (currently only available from Ford) ~$100
Caliper Pin Kit (2x) – ~$12
Total cost: $889!
First off, I started with our GT500 Brembo Adapter Kit (http://www.fullytorquedracing.com/sn…brake-kit.html). The S550 calipers use the same mounting pattern as S197 brakes, but there are some clearance issues so we had to machine down a section to get it to clear the bracket. The only other modification we made was to add a 1/8″ washer between the bracket and the spindle so everything would line up.
There was a fair bit (maybe took an extra 30 min) of modifying to the caliper, so I’m thinking we’ll probably come out with a bracket specifically for the S550 calipers if there’s enough interest.
The S550 Caliper is a bit larger than the GT500 Brembo, and also has larger pistons as you see here.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Use the S550 CALIPERS, PADS, AND HARDWARE, with the 2012 GT500 ROTOR

Are you guys possibly working on the s550 15 inch brembos for the sn95? If so that will be my next upgrade. Also cooling brake ducts should be added to your lineup of parts to make. They are super simple but require someone who can weld aluminum since that is the best material to use.

Let’s get a 99/04 IRS adapter made for some big brakes back there with parking brake!

I would buy this setup as a kit, with the calipers already pre milled, etc.
My new motor is producing over 900hp in my terminator cobra and I NEED better brakes..

That is such A nasty Idea just ABSOLUTELY love this idea. And the power you pushin over 900 thats Pretty S.I.C.K. I JUST LIKE IT BUT I AM GONNA TRY an stick with originality and for that I can only go with ONLY one Brand Named Stang in and that would Be the BEST ONE THE NOTCHBACK-STYLE.
