No one else has the quality of Turners kit. It's worth the wait!

Check with Jon Myers...he stocks the Turner kit. It's a first class upgrade and you won't be sorry.

I dont feel that's fair, not in the least. Ask the man who owns one (of mine).

CNC machined 6061-T6 aircraft structural grade aluminum, 11 inch rotor and
massive single piston caliper used on '94-'04 Mustangs. That is just the basic
disc setup, which fits a 15 inch wheel. Granted I have not sold anywhere near
as many sets as Turner, but I have zero complaints thus far - no quality issues.

Yours are real eye candy, Tom, and great-looking, quality work. IIRC, the catch is you can't use stock wheels, right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Sorry Tom,
I know your setup is sweet, but didn't know you were actively selling kits..

Just like the Turner setup, the stock Stude wheels wont clear the caliper,
but they WILL fit inside a 15" wheel, its the large 13" Cobra setup that will
not fit inside a 15" wheel, that brake setup requires 17" or larger.


Sorry Tom,

Less active since the CNC mill at the shop I was using broke and I have
not been able to find another wanting business (huh?).

Tom,

Do you have a link with more information on your kit? What is the price and availability of your brackets? What would be the total cost for each axle?

Nick,

I had 11 sets made, varing from the GT single piston to the GT dual piston to the
Cobra 13" rotor dual piston caliper brackets. I dont sell kits, just the bracket, all
the parts are available from your Ford Dealer, or Autozone, or any of the Racing
sites online that carry Ford parts .. or Craigslist or ?? Ebay? Your local junk yard?
It is hard to give an estimate on cost, since where you get the parts from will be
what controls that, all new parts from the Dealership would be expensive, going
to Napa or to Autozone a rotor is 35 bucks. You can order drilled and slotted and
get that modern look, or step up to the Cobra and really wow them. I got my GT
calipers for free, there are Mustangs everywhere.

I only have one set of GT brackets left, because had a Cobra set modded and the
guy backed out due to money problems. I have had plenty of interest in buying
more Cobra sets .. but until the CNC shop is back up again - I am out of stock on
filling those orders. PM or email me for more details. sbca96@aol.com

So the Chrysler Cordova/cop car 15x6 wheels I use should work with your set up, right Tom? Russ Farris

So the 15 x 6.5 Chrysler wheels I run will have no clearance issues with your setup, correct?....Russ Farris

Russ, the nice part is, its 'easy' to check without spending any money, just
about everyone knows someone with a '94-04 Mustang, so take a wheel off
the front of the Mustang, put yours on and spin it .. removes all doubt and
only takes a few minutes.

Sorry for seeming to hijack this thread, I just wanted to clarify things. ;)
