Brake rotor and caliper upgrades
« on: October 12, 2011, 03:20:30 PM »
Are there any brake upgrades to the rotors and calipers that will retain the 4 bolt hubs and doesn't cost Wilwood money?  I know there are a bunch of aftermarket kits to go to 5 bolt but I really don't want to go that route.  Has anyone every tried to adapt a Fox Body Mustang or T-Bird TC to a Pinto setup?
 
Sorry if this has been discussed at length in the past but I searched the forums and didn't find what I was looking for.
 
Thanks

the only substitute for cubic inches is BOOST!!!
