Which Power Brake Conversion Kit?

Post #1 by jlopes » Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:38 pm

I want to add power brakes to my manual '65 with disc/drum.

I notice a few companies selling these kits, SSBC, Master Power, Scott Drake, diskbrakeswap.com, etc..

If you have install one of these conversion kit what do you think of them?

Mustang Depot has the only booster master cylinder kit ive found that will work with the stock shock towers, you didnt say if it was already Disc/drum or if you are wanting to go to disc drum. You also didnt specify if you have the v8 spindles or the 6 spindles, im assuming 6 cause your on here. As the kits for the 6 cylinder options go, wilwood makes a kit and the other cheaper option would be Scarebird, its a tried and true setup that lots of people have used. If you have done the swap to the v8 spindles this opens up your options expedentially. The quality of most of these kits is pretty much the same and all your doing is paying for the name, except wilwood they are still some of the best on the market when it comes to braking performance but your paying for it too.
