So sick, did you modify the original front bumper or did you grab an extra?
I want to do something similar, minus the grill on yours.
Iím afraid to start cutting things out on my original bumper

It's a part needed for the so called frankenbrake upgrade to space out the caliper to allow you to run a larger rear rotor (either volvo s80 or focus RS rear rotor), with the same caliper as OEM.

Yep, suss got it right, probably should have said what i was up to in my post

So this bracket replaces the one on my ST (bolts right up, no other mods) and lets me re-use my oem rear caliper/pads/lines but lets you fit a ~302mm rotor from the RS. The stock ST rotor is 275mm, so you gain an inch in rotor.

It's essentially a poor mans version of this setup: https://www.cjponyparts.com/ford-per...018/p/M2300WR/

I just like the project aspect of piecing this together (and of course saving money.) I sourced the brackets locally for $70 (I probably could have looked harder and saved money but i was impatient.) You can order the brackets new online but they will cost roughly 2x, I dont mind the elbow grease. Then I ordered the oem RS rotors for about $70 shipped. So potentially under $150 for a rear upgrade, not too bad

I am in the process of piecing together the RS front Brembo setup, so i wanted to get the rears done too. So front and rear can be done for around $700 if you stick with oem pads/rotors. I'm opting to get the Mountune yellow street pads front/rear, mostly because i hear they are far less dusty (I wont complain if they perform better though ) but they will add about $200 to my costs.
