    AFAIK the Boxster rotors won't work at all , most folks use std 3.2 Carrera rotors which are 24mm thick.

    TRE is probably the person to ask he sells both front and rear kits.

    Hi Bill, need just a small bit of advice mate, you have helped me out in the past which was of great help, I`m purchasing standard boxster front callipers 1997 to 2005 ,( part no. 986 351 422 and 986 351 421) to fit to my 3.5 inch Bilstein struts, I have already purchased (standard front Boxster rotors) a set of 298mm rotors x 24mm , these callipers that I`m buying are not the S Boxster which uses 993/996 callipers, I`m trying to work out what caliper adapters to buy, everything is about 993/996 ,big red etc, can you help with the info given to buy the right adapter set for the above ,I have 18 inch rims ,so no worries on rotor size, if you can shed some light it would be great ,hope there is enough info .
    Kind Regards Brett in Australia.

    what wheels are OEM for my 1987 Carrera (ie. 3.2)?

    what offset are they? does offset make a difference?

    do you get the pop up window that asks what file you want to upload?

    if you get the pop up any error messages?

    a common problem used to be spaces in the file names, don't know if that's still an issue or not

    you can only loaf gif or jpg

    Bill, I've been trying to upload some pictures to the 911 tech forum and it isn't working. I have tried to do it with Firefox and IE but no luck. I use Adblock Plus with Firefox but I have turned it off for Pelican. No problems posting, just pictures. Any recommendations?

    It's a nice setup, w/ a possible issue.

    The issue revolves about which caliper the rear is
    there are 2 possibilities
    1)tt w/ 28/28 pistons
    or
    2) RS w/ 30/36 pistons

    the tt setup will be heavily front biased, this was a safety factor when used on an AWD, ABS equipped car

    I have the RS set on both my cars and it's fantastic

    Most people haven't a clue as to which is which, see if you can get the rear piston sizes from the seller, they will be printed on the spyders if they are still used or at least see if they are different sizes(this will be very obvious)

    Hello Bill my name is Rich first let me say I have greatly enjoyed reading your posts on brakes and their balance. I have an 81 sc widebody with a 3.0 930 motor. I was wondering what you thought about this setup. Porsche 911 930 911TT Brake Conversion Kit with Adapters Calipers Rotors Pads | eBay
