    Need a performance Brake system that can stop the beast after tune with Livernois !!

    Hi there

    i get the Livernois Motorsports Tune device and install the HBoost on my explorer Sport 2013 , the performance is more than great but i cant stop the car because the brake system cant handle this much of power after driving around 30 km ! i feel the brakes pads with the brake rotor getting hot and cant stop the car :/

    any suggested brake system to do ? the whole system or just a part ? ( rotor , pad , or caliper ?

    wich brand i should go for ( brembo , ebc , hawk , ... etc ) ?

    please help me :/

    Yes I was going to announce that we have uploaded the front thus far

    As of right now we can only verify firment on 13-14 models as anything produced before Feb 2012 uses a different setup.

    We are working with a few members on hopefully having a complete write up of the installation in which we will add to the product details.

    If anyone has any questions or comments about the kit please let me know

    Thanks,
    Benny

    ..saw an Ex police car close up this past weekend, the brakes are just awesome. They look like they belong on a military vehicle.

    That thread involves wilwood aftermarket brakes possibly fitting the Explorer Sport. We do not really have any input on that. We are offering the Sport/Interceptor brake kit for base and limited owners to upgrade.

    That is a freaking deal for uprated brakes. For reference in the Mustang world it is over $500 for new 99-04 Cobra 13" front brakes with crappy rotors and pads.

    OK, I think I'm following, but after reading the whole thread Im unsure so just checking. This upgrade is just for base model or Limited model Explores because it upgrades you to the Sport package brakes? If the Sport owners want and upgrade, it's aftermarket only still right? What about the Police package mentioned a few times here? Avail as a kit, any plan to? My brakes faded severly from a 90MPH downhill stop the other night and scared the wheee right outta me:mad:

    Yes, this is for factory Sport brakes. The police brakes are the same as the Sport.

    The Ex Sport has the same brakes as the Interceptor:

    "To handle the stopping demands of a performance SUV, the Sport model's brake rotors are the same as Ford's Police Interceptor Utility, which is based on the Explorer platform. The Sport and police vehicle's front brake rotors are 13.9 in (353 mm) in diameter vs. the current Explorer's 12.8 in (325 mm). Compared to the 2012 Explorer's 12.9-in (328-mm) rear brake rotor, the Sport and police vehicle's rear rotor is 13.6 in (345 mm)."

    I checked out the link to the Sport brakes and all the part numbers are DG1Z but everything I see listed for the sport is BRRF?? Not sure if these are the same or not.

    Welcome to the Forum Don123.:wavey:
    On the Fordparts.com website all numbers follow the 'BRF' scenario. That shows in different forms depending upon whether you are looking at the 'Standard' or 'Heavy Duty' parts. Like you said, there is nothing like a 'DG' number.
