Hey from Atlanta! - MM03 - 06-30-2017 01:05 PM

Hello Fellow Panther Owners,

I've owned my Marauder for a little over a year and I love it! But modifying this car is addictive; it should have come with a warning label LOL.

First I did CAI, Performance tune and 4.10 gears, then I upgraded the suspension with bigger sway bars, rear control arms & watts link, upgraded the brakes with C-5 calipers & GT500 rotors, stainless steel brake lines and cut 1 coil the coils springs. Recently deleted the rear cats for a little more exhaust sound. The car runs great! I'm planning to add headers and ultimately boost! Hopefully, I'll be done then! Shout out to Marty O and the crew at Mo's Speed Shop who did most of the work on my car you guys rock!

Looking forward to learning from you guys and gals and making some new friends in the process! - [attachment=2722]

I've been running them for about 6 months...

It's not a pre-assembled kit, you can see the thread on MercuryMarauder.net
entitled " Big Brakes on a not so big budget" by Zack Mcgrath.

The components are:

GT500 rotors from NAPA part # 880497 ( hub needs to be enlarged .003)

C5 Corvette Semi-Loaded Calipers w/ brackets

Stainless Steel Brake Lines with brackets and fittings from Todd at TCE

Custom brackets to mount the calipers with Hardware from Gerry Irwin

Ceramic brake pads

They work great! If you want to go fast in a 4500 lb car, you better be able to stop. Its a huge improvement over the stock brakes.
