Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant that 94-04 GT & V6 were the same, but yes, Cobra, Bullitt, and Mach I got the 13" rotors.

So there's upgrade options for the rear calipers and pads that I won't need to sell a kidney to pay for?

Depends on whose kidney, and how good your metalworking skills are

AFAIK, all alternatives require relocating the rear calipers. Now that I've said that, someone may pop in here with one that works.

You can swap to the 89 calipers, brackets, and rotors - they're a bit beefier.

THAT said - someone noted that Gen1 Dodge Vipers use the same shape/size brake pad, so it should be possible to upgrade the pads some.

OTGH - do you lock up your wheels now? When you hit ABS, are all four wheels thrumming, or just the front? If the back is already locking/ABS'ing on you, more brake won't do any good until you fix the tires. And since the front brakes do most of the braking ANYWAY ...

Wasn't there someone selling the MN-12 rear rotors with the Mustang bolt pattern, or was it that I was smoking something again?

Can the 97 Sport front rotors be used on the rear with XR7Dave's (from SCCoA) rear bracket mount? Isn't the front rotor from a Sport 11.65?

Thickness is wrong, rears are much thinner.

So yeah, I bought two Lincolns in a week.
