anyone got any info about upgrading the regular black brakes to a set of reds from a GT3/TT at the front.

is it a simple swap over with new rotors and pads to match the calipers or do you encounter problems that need the hub swapped, adaptors made and or ABS sensors and bias changed etc etc.

i had a look over the internet but couldnt find any info sticking within the 996. i assume this is because people upgrade to brembo or similar bypassing these but i want to keep the stock look.

I think you will need to change the hubs too if you put GT3 brakes on the car.

Some folks that just want red calipers just buy the one for a Boxster S - they are the same caliper as the 996 -- just red.

thanks for the info.

does this apply then to the reds from the 996 turbo too i assume?

would i come up against issues with discs/rotors fitting onto the exisiting hubs. what is the usual upgrade route with the 996 brakes. in the old days you could just stick on everything from a higher spec with ease more or less.

thanks for the link joel.
