    Jennifer you sound like a wonderful lady, but aren’t we getting a tad politically correct here? This is an Internet car forum for heaven’s sake. I may not agree with what Bat24 has to say, but I certainly defend his right to make a public ass of himself whenever he so chooses.

    Personally, I don’t think touchy-feely posts have any place on a car forum. I am less offended by some guy ranting about how hot his ride is (or yours is not) than I am by another dissertation on how we should get in touch with our feelings.

    There are people in this world that actually do like hard liquor, hot rides, red meat, etc... They read a forum like this for tech info, and they are not interested in personal growth, emotional development or anything personal about anybody.

    So would anybody be interested in a pair of GT calipers? I have several sets of them, no rotors, just calipers that need homes.

    Uncalled for. Post count does not equal knowledge or common sense level.

    Just wondering if anyone can answer for me...
    I have a V6 Vert with no ABS. I was also thinking of going to the GT front rotors and offset. I already upgraded my wheels and tires to something I'm really happy with and would like to improve the braking of the car. Would going to the larger GT rotor actually help, or would I need to upgrade to a bigger caliper as well? Is there a real advantage to the larger rotor with the same caliper? I know a full brake upgrade is going to do more for me, but if I can get better braking out of a $200 upgrade for take offs and some better pads, I'd rather go that route than pay a couple thousand for a full blown brake system upgrade.

    My wheels are 18" so I'm not worried about clearance of the GT rotor.
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    The set comes with the calipers but now I’m a bit confused. I thought previously it was said that the calipers for the GT and the V6 were the same and only the offset was different. Can anyone provide clarification for me? Is there conflicting information in this thread or am I just confused as usual? :shrug:

    Maybe I'm the one who's confused, but I'm pretty sure that the GT mount higher to clear the larger diameter rotors.

    Same caliper... The GT uses a modified mounting bracket. The brackets from Ford cost almost as much as the takeoff package.
    Before buying a takeoff package make sure you confirm that the brackets come with the package.
