At that price I would almost be interested right now...but I would have to change wheels and it would just be to say that I have them. Someone needs to jump on them though and fast.

What color? (I think they come in silver and black?) These are the 4-piston for 13" rotors correct? Direct bolt on for a hubswapped car?

I might be interested also if they are indeed a direct bolt on.

he said he has 3 more pair in red and 2 pair in silver. i should get mine by monday or tuesday, if everything goes well ill see if i can hook it up with the remaining calipers. the install should be almost as simple as the 13" cobra swap. it uses the same rotors and will bolt right up to the +93 spindles. im pretty sure its going to require a set of custom braided lines, but a good quality braided line shouldnt be overlooked when your installing 4 piston brembo calipers. the rotors come with brembo brand pads, witch is nice becouse the pads for these calipers is easily over $100, possibly more.

Why are braided lines needed? Will the ones from the GP a while back work?

nope, the cobra r caliper has a unique setup, instead of a banjo bolt through a block it is more like how the rubber hose end attaches to the hard line on the car. i could be wrong, but from pictures ive seen this is what it looks like. check out the hub swap article in the tech section of tccoa, in that article he is doing the hub swap and cobra r caliper install, you can see the brake line in one of his pics.

ok, just ordered my brake lines for the calipers from paragon performance, they were only about $50 for the pair shipped, so the brake lines are taken care of at a great price

When you get your lines (or calipers) can you get me some dimensions and pictures of the fitting I would need please? (Depth, diameter, thread spacing)

i'm very interested in a silver set. few questions though, and i'm not too wise about breaks (or anything else for that matter) so sorry if my questions are noobish.

these are just the front two calipers, right? and what would it take to put these on a non-hubswapped car?

if i can get these to work without too much trouble, i'll totally take a set, just don't want to jump in too fast.

you have to run 13" cobra rotors with these calipers. i guess you could redrill the rotors for the tbird pattern, but ive never liked doing that.

I'd be interested in a silver set. I am pretty sure they didn't come in red, so hopefully these are not 05+ GT500 calipers that DO NOT fit.

Brembo makes the red calipers, but not in mustang 13" setup.
The ones you bought are most likely for dodge 300c/SRT and are commonly missadvertised as fitting cobra's. They don't.

When you get them, please update this post. It would be great if they are the right ones.
