350mm Brake Upgrade Possible?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it's possible to put the larger brakes typically 6-piston 350mm brakes from a widebody 996 on a narrowbody 996 C2 or Boxster? From what I can find, all (at least the earlier GT3 and TTs) share the same subframe and control arms, but the widebodies have different wheel carriers/bearings/hubs. My info is too old to cover the newer MKII GT3 and 996s that are capable of using the 6 piston calipers (350mm steel or PCCB). I know the new GT3s will take shims for camber adjustment, so the control arms are different, but are the wheel carriers/etc/ the same as the older 996s and would they fit a C2/Boxster? Anyone heard of this swap?

Is it only the wheel carriers (in addition to the obvious calipers and rotors) or are the wheel hubs, bearings, ABS wheels/parts (everything else that goes in it) different as well? If only the wheel carriers, do you have a P/N? Thanks!!!
