4-lug big aluminum brake teaser :) with pic....

get ready to throw away those heavy Volvo calipers.......sure it does not bolt on without an adapter plate, but it also has the regular brake circuit so no funky hose adapter needs to be used to block off the secondary circuit...

yes, I know the rotor is rusted...bradholio had the damn thing sitting in the back of his truck in the snow.....

oh yea..for those not in the know...stock early vented 911 front rotor.....

Ok, It's nice, how much and what and when is the availability? We are CSOB's so I just have to ask.

no idea on the price of the adapter yet...I've got to run the numbers......calipers only cost $50 a pop (rebuilt even)...no pads...
don't know if it'll fit under a 15" rim...I've got 17" rims so I know it'll fit for me

Well, you could send me a complete setup for testing if you like, I will be more than happy to try them out and do a complete how to of how to put them on.

I am running 15" 2 liter Fuch wheels, so if they fit with those, we would be set.

914 con RX7 calipers

I've been collecting these calipers from the local pick-a-part place during the past few years for $15 w/o pads. The RX-7s they came on were running 15 inch wheels.

Looking forward to seeing your mounting solution, Mike.



Thanks,

Can early 911 vented disc be used with the BMW front setup without further mods?

No, unless you find a set of BMW ones for the vented 2002Tii set up.

Never heard of a 320Tii but the 2002 Tii was a cool little car.

BMW 2002 calipers have 3" spacing, 4 piston and nice size pads. You need to make a new SET of hardlines (dualinputs)

TII- IIRC were the vented version

Will these work on early 911 struts? w/ 3" spacing or is that a different thing. . . for the 5 lug guys. . . who were too cheap to buy 3 1/2" struts.
