Hello all,

I am looking at upgrading the front brakes on my 85 Carrera 3.2. I have a set of rear calipers from a 996 (GT3 I think) will these fit with my existing discs with caliper adaptor mounts and braided lines?

I have read several conflicting opinions on the net so thought I'd ask here first!

Thanks,

Jay.

Hi Mate - Havent seen you in a while.  Hope all is well.  996 and 964 and 930 brakes all fit the early cars (with some fiddling).  I seem to remember Hukent on here fitted some bigger calipers.  Check out his thread on it.

Hello Pete,

I've been out of the Porsche circle for a while. Sold my old SC last year and after a string on M3's I have returned!

I have seen various calipers on the old 911's, I just wondered if there were any 'off the shelf' brackets available for my calipers, Design911 only seem to have the 'big red' fronts listed.

Part No. from my calipers is 996 352 425 and 996 352 426

Im sure Ive seen adapter plates for the 996 Calipers to fit the early 911's.  I'll have a dig around and see what I can find.

They are definately out there but not sure where! I think I am putting the brake upgrade on the back burner for the minute while I sort out a coil over conversion.

I did a coilover conversion on mine.  I went for the Bilstein RSR Dampers and Springs.

Rebel are good JK.  You can also look at EBS racing which is where I got mine.
