Bigger Is Better
New from Classic Performance Products are their new big-bore metric caliper. The caliper is an all-new design to replace the popular small-piston GM metric (S-10) caliper. The new caliper has various improvements and features: the bore size has been increased to offer more than a 20 percent increase in stopping power, the casting has been cleaned up to make chrome, powdercoat, or custom painting look even better, and extra ribs have been added internally, while unnecessary weight was removed. This new caliper is also universal and can be used on the left and right sides because the bleed screw and banjo fitting can be installed into either position. This caliper is lighter, stronger, has more stopping power, is universal, and fits any application that uses the small GM metric (S-10) caliper. CPP's calipers have all-new parts and come loaded with standard D154 brake pads, clips, slide pins, banjo bolts, washers, and bleeder screws. These calipers can replace D154-type GM metric calipers ('78-88 midsize and '83-02 S-10) used on most Mustang II conversions. Call CCP at 714/522-2000 for more info.
