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

            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.

                  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

                            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.

                            Tom
