    I am looking at dual piston front, single rear with steel braid lines. Thoughts and ideas?

        99+ Cobra calipers (look on eBay for good used ones and make sure to get the correct banjo bolts with them)
        13" Front Cobra rotors (From DRT-Sport but specify you need them drilled for 4.25x5 bolt pattern https://www.drt-sport.com/catalog/3978 )
        11" Rear Cobra rotors (From DRT-Sport but specify you need them drilled for 4.25x5 bolt pattern https://www.drt-sport.com/catalog/3978 )
        SS braded lines (From www.Spinning wheels SC http://spinningwheels-sc.com/stopfle...es1993-98.aspx )
        Brake pads (from your vendor of choice.)
        Rear re-location brackets (From Super coupes unlimited http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthre...or-upgrade-kit )

        Can be done for under $800 and yes, it is worth it but you will only be able to run 17"+ wheels. So best to wait until you can have all the parts, a lot of guys like to hub swap at this time too for more wheel options.

          Yes that sounds similar to what I want done. Most likely Wilwood brake parts. I want to keep the stock wheel sizes. A lot of this is cosmetic for when I choose my wheels and tires. I want the calipers to match the body color. I probably won't get all my dreams this year but by next summer be ready.

            Best to install the 99-04 V6/GT brake calipers then with T-bird rotors or just leave your Mark VIII brakes because they're better.

              You can do a pbr dual piston and be able to keep stock wheels..not much improvement braking wise over our mark 8 sport brakes but they don't warp like our sport brake setup loves to do..
              98 lsc..trac loc,cobra cams,90mm mafs,exhaust,tune,accel coils,DS rotors and ceramic pads,rims and sounds too.
