The SVT brake kit is a really good upgrade to a regular focus. IMO i would keep the brakes.

keep them, from a SVTF owner with them and loving them for all there worth, keep the rear disks. MUCH easier to change when worn, and stops you quicker with no questions asked....

agreeing with previous posts, dont forget that when your procharger kicks, your gunna need to stop at some point in time. keep the brakes....

I think if you sell the brakes you'll regret it later.
