    That's 800 total for all 4 corners though. Still a win in my book.

    Yea but the rears aren't really worth upgrading imo. The OP even said he didn't really feel a big performance difference with it. For that kind of ballpark, I think I would go Wildwood as well and just be prepared to clean them more often.

    Yeah it's a tough decision:
    I guess we'll see how it plays out. I'm not a fan of the reviews for the wilwoods so that's really my only decision to stay away from them.
    So if you take the Wilwoods out of the equation, your other choices are in the $2000+ range; at which point the pros and cons stack like this:
    OEM - driveability and cost with lower overall maintenance.
    BBK - looks and ultimate weight reduction plus stopping power.
    The question becomes how do you use your car?!

    Ya I'm still following. I was thinking about reusing stock calipers on the SVTF rotors. Save some money there

    Well finally got the hardware from SICO; but of course since I got sick of waiting I took the calipers to the powdercoater....way to go Murphy! So another week and we should have a real update.

    It either replaces the oem caliper carrier bracket or attaches to the OEM carrier. Either way, it's function is to properly align the caliper to the larger rotor.

    Well there are 6 bolts, 2 spacers and 3 holes in the bracket so to my way of thinking the Mondeo or SVT caliper must bolt to one of the OEM mounting points on the knuckle along with the bracket which bolts to both OEM mounting points on the knuckle and the other mounting point for the caliper bolts to the SiCo bracket together with the spacer. I may be wrong and shit I am not sure I have explained that right.
