    Thanks I appreciate the confirmation on the brake lines. I wasn't going to buy the kit and just order separate parts to save the cost. Just noticed the brake line in the kit so wanted to verify. I knew the rears are the same as what is currently on the car only red. Will probably paint the existing ones.

    What he said. I did use a small sanding wheel on the rear calipers to get them a little smoother. Very happy with the results.

    technically, The ends of both lines are the same, so the old ones will fit. However, because the placement is a little different, the lines for the Brembos are shorter. I think the OEM lines for the Brembos are pretty cheap, so you may want to consider those. If you use the ones from the 4piston calipers, be very careful how you manage the extra slack in the lines. You’d have a really bad day if some moving part of the suspension snags on the line and yanks it during spirited driving.

    Edit: OEM lines are about $25 each. For that price, I'd buy them just to eliminate the worry factor.

    Yeah I’d probably take a quick look at the placement of the lines before taking it for a drive. I didn’t change the lines when I did the swap on my non pp gt and I don’t rub anywhere. And that’s with 10.5” wide wheels

    You do not need to replace the brake lines. I did the swap on a non PP GT also with 10" wheels and zero problems.

    Thanks for the information. You are correct the price of the lines are fairly cheap so for the ease and peace of mind it is probably worth it.

    Sorry another question. I have read thread after thread on this to determine part numbers between the various color combinations of the calipers and the part numbers in this thread for the red and white calipers. Had decided on the red ones but compared prices on the black ones as well. Upon seeing the price difference between the various combinations I convinced myself I have research overload and must have completely messed up in my research.

    From what I have read this is the caliper part numbers:
    KR3Z-2B121-A Left Caliper (Red with White Lettering)
    KR3Z-2B120-A Right Caliper (Red with White Lettering)
    FR3Z-2B121-E Left Caliper (Black with White Lettering)
    FR3Z-2B120-E Right Caliper (Black with White Lettering)
    JR3Z-2B121-A Left Caliper (Black with Red Lettering)
    JR3Z-2B120-A Right Caliper (Black with Red Lettering)

    On the Tasca site as a starting point on pricing the Red/White combo is around $213 per caliper, Black/White combo is $88 per caliper and the Black/Red combo is $150 per caliper.

    If I am not mistaken they are the same caliper except in different colors. That is a staggering price difference. Am I missing something?

    they know folks will prefer the red because they stand out, so they milk them.

    Im just assuming it also has to do with the fact that the red calipers were made for the Bullitt and everything that pertains to that edition is marked up.

    Tasca is showing $241 for the Black/White 50th anniversary calipers? It looks like all the other parts stores are around that price as well. The Performance Pack version is the cheapest, probably because they make so many of them.
