Brembo big brake conversion

Postby celi_wabbit » Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:18 am

I bought the adapter kit a couple of months ago and decided it was time to buy the parts and convert. About 3 weeks ago I bout the Porsche brembo rotors for $320 shipped (got lucky bc I was patient). I just got done on grinding the pins and now it's time to paint it. Today I just received my Subaru DRT Cryo rotors, and here is the pics...................... :evil:


They are huge and heavy!!!

Here it is... don't laugh, I'm not finish with the paint job yet! since you couldn't wait for the calipers pics being done. :D :D :D
I decided to test painting it b4 I trim down the pins. This is the reason why one is black and the other is red, and red red still needs more coat. I have to run to autozone and get some more high heat paint.

He was just referring to your post, in that you said "porsche brembo rotors instead of porsche brembo calipers."

Can't wait to see how it'll look all hooked up!

After the brembo calipers are installed and I know they work well? you can have my stock calipers if you want. The Brembo calipers came out of 99 Porsche 911.
