Big Reds on a Porsche 928 S4

Is it possible to mount 993 "big red" calipers on a 87 Porsche 928S4? I thought I had read somewhere that big reds would work as long as a 928 GTS brake disc is used. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

993TT front rotors? The 928GTS uses the 94 turbo 3.6 front rotors without the cast holes. Essentially the same but the hats of the 993TT are 5mm shorter than the 94 turbo. Same brakes on all three cars other than rotors.

Did you need to adapt for the difference?

I have seen your car up close the color is stunning and unique.

Does anyone know what is needed to make big reds work on S4's? I'm pretty sure I can't use a standard S4 rotor with this setup. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
