However, it is my understanding that the Mark Vii caliper is the same as the Turboe Coupe/93 cobrta - a 45mm varga which has a bigger bore piston than the Cobra varga caliper.
The point Mike brought up is a good one. It might depend on the year of your donor car. I've wondered about the length of the late model Mark VII axles too, but have never caught one in the salvage yards to verify. So I looked up on www.car-part.com a 92 Mark VII axle, and the interchange lists 91 & 92 Mark VII and some 94 Mustang axles as being the same part. Now the next step is to confirm if this is true or not.i was talking about mounting all new cobra brake parts but yall have answered my question. the axles are to long. i may just get some sn95 axles. that would also allow me to hook up an e-brake, finally
That's odd; I wonder why Ford went to a solid rotor for the SN95 stuff if the vented rotor was already available? Must've been a cost savings deal to go with the Vargas, which required the thinner rotors...91-92 used a smaller 10.5" vented rotor and 45mm calipers which i beleive are similar to the tc/cobra calipers. Also, this was the 5-lug setup used on the '93 Cobra R. The Cobra R did not use the 11.65" setup that came on the 94+ Cobras.
did you mean rims or something else? my car is in pearland and if ya'll wanna see comparisons let me know.Do you by chance have any dims on a 91/92 MkVII rotor? Be nice to compare them the to TB/Cobra, MarkVII/SVO, and the SN95 pieces...
No, he means dimensions. He's been working on engineering several different brake brackets to use various disc brake calipers & rotors on Fox length axles.did you mean rims or something else? my car is in pearland and if ya'll wanna see comparisons let me know.
and to the original poster, i had to swap to 94-95 axles to run the bigger brake setup. for reasons already stated.

thats cool. was curious what he was saying. does he also do anything on ebrake cables. after doing my conversion, my ebrake stuff doesnt work.No, he means dimensions. He's been working on engineering several different brake brackets to use various disc brake calipers & rotors on Fox length axles.
I'd guess that because the D347 profile pad is used on the later MVII, that the rotor thickness is the same as the Turbo Coupe; Jack Hidley says the Turbo Coupe/93 Cobras are .945" thick (http://forums.corral.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1072798).So far only info i have
10.53" vented rotor
45mm piston caliper (same p/n as '93 Cobra caliper)
Well, as you noted above the 10.5" MVII rotor was used on the 93R; the only critical dimension would seem to be the hat depth but because Ford seemed intent on using parts-bin pieces, I'd guess again that the mounting bracket would be very similar if not identical to the sn95 GT. If I hadn't already upgraded my SSBC rear disc to 5-lug using a 10.25" rotor, this might be something to consider; but the expense for an additional .25" in diameter is not worth it to me given mine is not a track car. If it were, the 10.5" MVII wouldn't be big enough according to the guys who tried using them. If I were using the solid GT rotors and wanted both a vented version and the ability to run a 15" wheel, I think I'd drop down to the 10.25" Turbo Coupe 5-lug rotor, use Cobra pads and and call it a day.Is the rotor offset the same?
I'm almost temped to go down to a parts store and buy a rotor and do some measurements. I am curious to see if the vented rotors could be made to work with SN95 GT axle brackets and the wider SN95 Cobra calipers or tc/93cobra calipers.
If he's talking about the car in his sig, (90 Mark VII) then it came with the same setup that I have on my car. Need to find a 91-92 Mark VII.I may go pick one up as well, unless I can con Mark into swinging by, LOL! I could get dims pretty quickly and look at stack-up...
