Don't make any changes unless you are:

Fronts with more pistons, ie more fluid transference will only screw up the F/R brake balance/bias

Trust me, almost any situation will slam waaay too much front bias your way.
You'd be surprised what it takes to ame a 930 'improved' - usually involves a creative rear caliper setup usually coupled with a bias adjuster.

A 'Big Red' setup F&R will give you an unpleasant amount of front lockup.
I can put you in contact with folks who have had these expereices if you want -

Hey Craig 930 RS Are you really in the Porsche brake biz or is it just a hobby/passion you like? Who is the best 930 caliper rebuilder?

I am in the same boat as the OP....deciding between freshening up my original 930 brakes with rebuilt calipers, SS lines, new rotors, Pagid RS14 pads and SRF or dumping all the old stuff in favor of a custom 996TT 13" front and 12.75" rear package.

Do you really think the 930 brakes are up to the task of hauling down a 2800lb 450rwhp 930 on the track as well as the newer brakes can? Why is a dual M/C required with the upgraded brakes?

No matter which direction I go ducting may not be possible since the car is still street driven and I donít want to mess with attaching hoses each time I hit the track.
