Mystery Brake Calipers

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a modified 1987 Porsche 911 with what was supposed to be a 996 Brake Kit.  After a closer look, I have never seen calipers like this.  All 4 Pistons are the same diameter (1.363" or 34.62mm) and the caliper cylinders are 1.367" ID.  I am trying to purchase Inner Piston Seals which measure 1.55" OD x 1.37" ID x 0.105" Thk.  They are extremely lightweight but I've never seen a two-piece caliper like this... does anyone recognize these calipers or know who the manufacturer is?  If not, does anyone know where I can purchase a rebuild kit or at least inner piston seals?  One other mystery is that it takes a Wilwood pad 150-8856 but I'm pretty sure it is not a Wilwood Caliper.
