    Yep...very different pedal feel than my 2013. The non-performance package brakes have the same feel BTW. They must have re-engineered the entire hydraulic system.

    I think Ford wanted to make sure they had the strongest brakes possible, because so many people have been complaining for so long about weak Ford brakes. They may have overcompensated here, but as Mark indicated, it's a better problem to have than weak brakes.

    i was ok with the feel of my 2006 GT brakes. but after i installed the ford racing brembo brakes and included goodridge stainless steel brake lines the brake feel was much improved, a much firmer brake pedal with less effort; but still very linear and easy to modulate. my wife's e90 has the typical super grabby bmw brakes and i love them once i re-calibrate to them. i even stuck with the dirty/dusty oe brake pads last brake service i did to keep that feel. such a pain to keep the wheels clean... would much prefer to have grabby brakes then the other way around; very confidence inspiring.

    S197gt I have a question for you. I just bought a 2015 Mustang GT with the Brembo brakes. They are so over boosted as to be uncomfortable for me to drive. Are you saying that changing out the brake lines will solve that issue? Does Goodridge make a replacement kit or did you have to fabricate it. I just don't get why changing out the lines would solve the problem....unless the stock lines were rubber and bulging under pedal pressure and then I think that might cause the brakes to be less effective. Make no mistake as these will put you through the front window. Thanks.
