StopTech Rotors with Akebono Pads
« on: May 17, 2019, 07:02:42 PM »
My 2014 SHO non-PP is in need of new brakes so Iíve been looking over parts for a while. I pulled the trigger and finally ordered some parts. Hereís whatís on its way.

Rotors:
Front
StopTech 127.65136L
StopTech 127.65136R
Rear
StopTech 127.65137L
StopTech 127.65137R

Pads:
Front
Akebono ASP1611A
Rear
Akebono ASP1612

Calipers:
Front
Power Stop S5468
Rear
Power Stop S5466

I donít track it. Some occasional spirited driving along with some  mountain driving as well. Besides the pads, choices were largely cosmetic, if Iím honest. Didnít need the calipers, for example, but I like the idea of red powder coated vs painting them myself. I think drilled and slotted look nice and theyíll fulfill my needs just fine. Iíll let you know my thoughts after everything arrives and I get it on the car.

Rotors arrived today. Iíll keep adding pics to https://photos.app.goo.gl/hqoXY1QPaySsJhS97

Calipers and front pad pics added to the album. Couple nicks in the powder coat finish, but nothing major. Not bad for a remanufactured part.

Brakes are done! So far so good. I havenít had a chance to really test them yet, but no issues so far. Iím happy with the looks.

I added a few more pics to the album as well.

Thanks! If I could have gotten powder coated in a different color, I would have. Completely agree that red is so common. Iím still happy with the results. Blue would look great! Do you have a pic?

Then go with some purple accent lighting.

Black Light SHO.

Purple may just stay as a thought and never come to fruition.  Looks weird....and again I am lost.  Blue looks good though.  Sorry to hijack the thread!
