PCCB Brake rotor swap to steel (track use) - 2008 Turbo


Recommended Posts

Loren, All,

Can you provide any guidance for 2008 Turbo - I have PCCB but want to swap them out with Steel rotors (and matching pads) for front and rears. I am going to be tracking the Turbo, so dont want to damage the rotors.

Thanks for your help!

Gen 2 PCCB are very good brakes. Only issue with them is the cost of replacement pads and rotors.

Basically you will need new calipers and rotors for the steel conversion. If you wanted use center-lock wheels then plan ahead as they get yet a different rotor.

Not sure but there may also be different settings for ABS and PSM based on brake type using a PIWIS.

Thanks Loren.

I don't have center lock wheels. One of the guys at DE mentioned that steel rotors were a direct swap without changing the calipers. And that pads for steel rotors were exact same size & thickness as pads for ceramic. So it seems like there may be a straightforward swap but I want to check if any one has tried it yet.
