Default 2005 S281 3V Brake Question (I have used the search function)

Can anyone tell me on S281 3V if the brakes are the same as a mustang GT?

Does Saleen put other than mustang GT brakes on all Saleens and then also have a optional brake upgrade?

I don't believe that I have a brake upgrade on the car to the 14" brembos.

Sorry if this has been answered before I did search.

If they are not the Saleen 14" then they are the stock GT brakes.

Same as stock Mustang unless you have the 14" upgrade like you said.

It's a fun car couldn't pass it up for the deal I found. I've wanted a Saleen since the early 90's

It has this stage II kit from procharger on it...

Welcome and congrats on your new Saleen! I too am a new owner of one (one month now) and find new questions everyday. Everyone here is really helpful when it comes to Saleens. Like they said already if the calipers are Saleen ones ten the brakes are stocl GT's.
