I have a 66 GT 350 Shelby Mustang. I own a small autobody shop and have restored several Mustangs over the years.
I just bought a 2008 Ford Shelby GT500 with 1800 miles on it. I plan on modifying it with Ford Racing Performance Parts that include a short-throw shifter, axle-back exhaust, upper control arm, panhard bar and a supercharger upgrade that will produce 605hp.
I’m an inept mechanic at best but I have undertaken some small projects on my car. Next up is brakes. I’m trying to decide between 2 kits. One is the standard front drum replacement with disks and the other is a replacement kit with 4 new drum brakes supposed to increase braking effectiveness about 30% and replacing the single master cylinder with 2 cylinders. It’s pretty much a necessity since I live in the mountains. Can’t decide though. The disks promise better braking ability but it’s apparently more difficult to install. Since I’m not too handy with a wrench it’s a difficult decision.
