What size wheels? Track/Street/both? 3.2 "Wide A" discs and calipers are a nice way to increase your heat dissipation reserves for not much money, fit under 15s, but add unsprung weight. 930 brakes are the ultimate solution that still fits under 15s, although the early 78/79 version would work best due to offset. Downside, they are expensive due to rarity and floating rotor cost.

If you don't care about 15s, the world is your oyster: Aftermarket Brembos, Big Reds, PCCBs, 996 brakes, whatever your budget will allow. Big Reds used to be best bang for the buck, but unsure now. Cayenne and Touareg V10 calipers are an inexpensive and massive option, too.
