Brake conversion kits? Disc? Power Disc?

One of the first big things we're going to have done is converting the drum brakes to disc brakes. While looking at the conversion kits, I see that most (or all?) of the power disc kits require 15" wheels. His car has 14" wheels. We're on a budget, of course, but our priority is safety.

What would be the drawback to sticking with manual (is that the correct term?) disc brakes vs. power disc brakes, cost aside? Keeping in mind that this will be a 16 year old boy with a V8. I almost put the dang thing through the neighbor's fence, I surely want him to be able to stop when he needs to.

Thanks!!

Carla

Can't you just put a brake booster on the car to give it power brakes ?  Drums are fine, but they are a pain to swap pads.

The best person to ask about part swaps is choppermike. He can tell you how to change any part on a mustang to something else. If you give him year and model he will set you up.

Well, we took a trip to Bryant this weekend and visited with Dale Mashburn. He's gotten us lined out with a way to upgrade and keep the 14" wheels. Woo hoo!! Plus electronic ignition. That was more fun than going to the mall!!!
