Disc breaks

I'm am trying to convert my stock drum brakes to disc. I am looking for a kit that will work with the crate ford 302 V8 and a manual transmission. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, Walston, I also used ECI. Their kit was easy to install and works great. Tip: make sure the brackets are installed super straight.
