So, you have the speed but can you slow it all down?
When it comes down to building the ultimate performance car, your braking system needs to be just as beefy as your engine and chassis. Although there are several parts of the braking system that require your attention when building out the ultimate Mustang, your brake calipers should be high up on the list. Depending on the generation of Mustang you're running, the brake calipers may be in dire need of an upgrade. Sure, later years were available with Performance Packages that brought 6 piston calipers to the party but earlier generations like the fox body were woefully under-braked for the amount of horsepower that the 5.0 put down.
Upgrading your brake calipers often means bringing up the number of pistons within the caliper along with it. Multi-piston caliper setups work by applying braking force across a wide area and, combined with a high strength rotor, can slow your Mustang down with absolute authority. Even if you're just looking to bring back a fox body to its original glory, swapping out an old, gunky set of calipers can do wonders for your braking performance.
