Looking good man. That turbo header looks like fun. I want to see how you do with the turbo thing. Might be something in my future.

Overall, the truck stops dead fast. I barely put any pressure on the brake pedal and it is stopping. Slamming on the brakes throws you into the dash, lol.
The e-brake took 10minutes to hook up and i barely push in the pedal to lock it up and it DOES NOT move after. I like verry much!!

Can't believe I missed most of this build up. Looks great. I'm really curious if you could provide a bit more detail about the brake setups you have?

Like was the rear a kit or just a bracket and parts?

How bout the front? I'm curious as I would really like to do something very similar to my truck.

Looks damn good man. I really like it. Now lower the rear. That rake reminds me of the 70's.

Okay, here is the kit to run the cobra front brakes. The guy isn't making the kit anymore, but if you've got access to machine shop its easy to do.

Compare the rotor fronts to see how the kit works:

Comparing the backs:

And how the aluminum bracket works for the caliper:

Rear brakes work by modifiying the caliper brackets...bolts right up:

And this machine works great for bleeding!

Its not too bad. Drop in forged pistons/rods (i've heard stock turbocoupe/svo is the best), then injectors, MAF, fuel pump, turbo, header, intercooler, piping, 3inch exhaust, head studs, clutch, and head gasket. Probably more, but it'll give you like 300hp easily.

That's why your rotors looked wierd to me. I was thinking to myself "I don't remember the wheel studs and bearing being part of the rotor."

Haha... looks like I'll have to do some of my own research to figure out the 13" on a 4x4.

As for the rear setup though, where did you get the brackets and what are the Calipers and rotors off? Is that just the SN95 Mustang setup? Here's the 2 threads I know about that look similiar but I know in Bob's thread he actually made his own brackets. Yours look almost factory.

sn95 Mustang rear disc conversion for your Ranger 7.5" or 8.8" - Turbo Ranger Forums

Doesnt sound to bad really. So if you drop in the pistons and rods, do you have to bore it out any or will they go right into the 2.5 block?

Grant was first to reply in that thread. lol.


Yeah, Grant's setup is mustang. Bob's setup and the stang setup won't work on 31splines without custom brackets...luckily for you, you've got a 28spline, and the stang brakes are pretty much a complete bolt on.
