Upgrading 2013 Mustang Brakes
As a Mustang owner, it’s easy to remain focused on how fast your ride is while you explore the many different ways you can make it even faster. Thinking about installing that supercharger in your pony car? Go for it — just don’t forget about upgrading her stopping power while you’re at it. The stock brakes on your Mustang have been designed to stop your stock-powered Mustang. If you’ve already made performance upgrades that make your Mustang faster than stock, it’s important to install performance brakes that make her stop equally as fast. CJ Pony Parts can help.
Mustang Performance Brakes — a Safe, Smart and Easy UpgradeThe stock brake rotor size on a 2013 Mustang GT is 12.4 inches, whereas most Mustang performance brake kits start at 14 inches. That may not sound like a big difference, but when you do the math, that extra 1.6 inches adds an additional 5 inches to the total circumference and an additional 33.98 square inches of braking surface area!
The larger surface area allows heat to dissipate more efficiently, which equates to better brake performance. Upgrading your 2013 Mustang brakes is a pretty straightforward job. You’ll need access to a jack, a jack stand and a few common hand tools. For the mechanically inclined, this is the kind of performance upgrade you can complete in a few hours in your own garage or driveway.
• Performance brake kits from Baer, Rousch, SSBC, Raybestos and Ford Racing.
• MGP caliper covers.
• Performance brake pads from Hawk.
• Brake cooling shields from Ford Racing.
• Performance brake lines from Russell, Maximum Motorsports and Ford Racing.
