    Big thanks to CJ Ponyparts for my Cobra brake upgrade kit, they knocked a bit off the list, and managed to ship the whole thing to the UK for $150.
    That and they got it well before the estimated date as they were on back order at Ford.
    Fitted everything fine, and i seem to remember some saying if you dont fit the Cobra master cylinder [i have'nt yet] that it makes the pedal harder, so i'm assuming the cobra master has a bigger bore and therefore makes the pedal easier on the foot?
    Must admit they should have had these "dinner plate" size discs as standard. :)

    Is that for the rear? I looked at their site and the front looked like they cost 400

    "ship the whole thing to the UK for $150".
    Summit quoted me about $400 to ship the whole kit as did a few others, so yeh i think thats good.

    It doesnt show the Master Cylinder on there, so yep, i assume its a cheaper kit, the kit i got is :

    http://store.summitracing.com/partd...4294924755+4294922533+400070+115&autoview=sku

    Its hard enough getting someone to ship to the UK, i cant afford to keep returning stuff if its wrong, so although i found this kit cheaper at a lot of places, they would'nt ship, or the shipping was more than double. I cant just drive to the nearest breakers for parts so a complete kit is a start.

    Now can anyone answer my original query............ :)
