Yes, but over the years that nomenclature just kinda went away and people called them Turbo brakes.. however, the myth resurfaced heavily over the last few years with all the newbies getting in and all the talk about these wonderful cars..

Awesome! Its rare to find one without a sunroof. BTW I have 9309700485.

No such option as sunroof delete. Most of the US dealers ORDERED cars with sunroof option because that's what the US market wanted. Some came in without them as the OPTION was not specified.

My 78 has a sunroof, the CoA (which I declined to order) listed the optional sunroof. When I get home tomorrow, I can provide that option code if need be.




Bingo.. exactly what I was talking about.. non-sunroof car, "no s/r delete option" listed as produced. In essence, it was produced without a sunroof because that option was not ordered.

Thx ficke for posting

Will get next week a set of original 930 3.3 Brakes from a 1979 turbo as well.
So i have the Repro 917 Brake and the 3.3 original Brake.

Whats your experience with the original 3.3 Brakes on the track ?
I run my 79 930 turbo all the time on track doing DE days and open track days and have no issues at all with the stock 930 brakes. I removed the backing plates to get more air to them and then added cooling ducts from AJUSA and this helped keep them cool.

The only change I would recommend is to stay away from cross drilled front rotors and replace them with slotted rotors. Otherwise you will eventually get cracking propagating thru the cross drilled holes and the slotted rotors don't have this issue.

My 77 track car has the complete brake system from a 86 930 including the bigger master cylinder.

Being a track car, I played with pads and fluid on the previous system (stock) and found that Brembo LCF600 with real race pads were about as good as the turbo brakes with stock (street) 930 pads. (flame on but lap times don't lie).

Then I upgraded to Pagid yellow RS 29 pads. They will rip your face off and the brakes are effing superb now! I do run these on the street as well and they have good low temperature bite for a racing pad. I am running these with 17" wheels.

They are installed on the front of 911 trailing arms. I had a fellow pElican machine the rear calipers and make up some spacers.
