    Hello ecoboost community,

    I have finally finished the design of this kit and the adapter brackets required. I have placed an order for (Qty 9) sets of CNC machined 6061 aluminum adapter brackets which allow the Wilwood Superlight-4 to be used on the 2013-2019 Taurus SHO 13.8" front rotor. This kit should also work on the 2010-2012 SHO assuming the customer uses the 2013+ front rotor. This brake kit saves approximately 25lbs of weight off the front of the car total when compared to the existing front calipers and mounting brackets. This kit utilizes 4 piston forged aluminum calipers, bp20 street pads, and stainless braided brake lines. The following Wilwood components, which are sold separately, are needed to complete the kit. I found the best pricing for these items through SummitRacing.com.

    This kit total should come in very close to the $1000-$1050 range after all items are purchased and make an affordable brake upgrade possible for the community.

    The adapter brackets and mounting hardware kit is $400 shipped and are on a first come first serve basis. They will ship out the 3rd week of March, most likely Monday the 15th. I accept cashapp, google pay, and PayPal. Please PM me for any additional questions regarding the kit or payment method.

    Thank you.

    If you are serious about wanting a set I could hold a pair for you if you place a deposit.

    2013 - 2019 SHO rotors are all the same size between Pp and non-pp.

    If all 9 sets sell and there is additional interest to keep making more kits then yes of course. I won’t however stock them and hold massive inventory as they will be group buy type small batches like this current batch of 9. The quantity of 9 sets is the quantity of complete kits my machine shop can make with one standard sized piece of aluminum bar stock .

    That's what I figured. I'm pretty interested but not sure I want to put that much into it right now.
