Default Q: 13” Brake Upgrade?

My 2003 Saleen Mustang SC281 has the standard front brake set up. What is the best available alternative (value for money) to replicate the big brake upgrade (13”) that Saleen put on the cars as a factory option at that time and who is actively offering these ? (want to retain the original look of the 13” option)

When I did mine I bought a used set, had them powder coated to match car and rebuilt. But basically you just need the bembro big brake kit for 99-04.

The Brembo kit Saleen used is similar to the year 2000 SVT Cobra R front Brembo kit.

I used the Brembo kit on mine and I love it.

What does the brembo kit consist of?
Are the rotors the same dimensions of the regular cobra rotors?
Are the calipers generic brembos used in other applications?

They use the same 13” Cobra rotors. The caliper is a basic 4 piston design that Ford used on the Cobra R and Focus RS so yes it’s a shared component.
