It's not the calipers that are the issue, it's the rotors. Look at the cost difference for the 1978-80 turbo as opposed to later turbos. The front rotors will cost you over $800, that's JUST the rotors. The 1978-80 turbos get hosed on price more than any other model it seems. I wonder if they could be "upgraded" to 1981-89 brakes.
