Where can I get the SS brake lines to replace the OEM ones ? Which Hawk pads are you running ?I have their kit on my GT, and it is great. If you're going to the track, you need this. I'm running stock rotors, Hawk pads, SS lines, DOT 4 fluid, and the QM brake cooling kit. No problems with brake fade.
What did you do with the brake splash shield? Did you cut a hole in the stock one or buy an aftermarket shield with the hole already in it?I have their kit on my GT, and it is great.

I'd rather not remove the shields. They do serve a purpose...especially with the stock brake pads throwing out so much dust.The OEM splash shield is removed. The kit comes with an adapter to connect the brake cooling hoses.
Yes they are, to give you an example Fred (07 SHELBY) and I went on alittle cruise last summer and I cleaned my wheels before we left his house, his was fairly clean before we started as well. By the time we got back to his house after, I would say 150 miles or so my wheels were black and his looked like they did when we left.Are the Porterfield pads really that good? I put EBC pads on my Charger, and they work great, but they're nasty. My wheels get black in a couple of days.
If you need brake cooling, you don't want to be using the stock pads, they won't cut it with the heat. At least on the front, swap the pads. No, the OEM shields won't work with the cooling adapters. But dust with the Hawk pads is not that bad. Here's a close-up of one of the photos of my car at the track taken by the track photographer. This was late in the day, so it was taken after driving 200 miles to the track and racing most of the day. You can still see the sunlight reflecting off the wheel.I'd rather not remove the shields. They do serve a purpose...especially with the stock brake pads throwing out so much dust.
Do you think there is any way to mount them without removing the shields?
I was thinking I would hold off on new pads until the stock ones were used up, but I'm not sure I can wait that long. I may have to pull the trigger on the Porterfields.The brake dust alone is all the reason you need to replace the stock pads. I have not done it yet, but, plan to soon.
