944 brakes on a 914

What ever happened to the 944 brake install on the 914?

I guess the discussion kind of died. I know that 85.5 944 brakes won't fit with the Fuchs alloy wheels. I tried it, and even shaved the 944 brakes a little, but it still caught on the wheel. They did fit under my American Racing wheels, though. If I go Autocrossing and change my wheels, I might consider swapping out the front brakes for the event.

I do think it would work, though. The piston in the 944 brake is huge and deep. I don't think there would be the possibility of the piston popping out.

Anyways, I haven't done it because I like the Fuchs wheels a lot better than the American Racing wheels that I have.

Paul, Do you have the 5 bolt conversion? And would wheel spacers allow the clearance needed? Is the interference with the rim or the back side of the wheel center?
