Brake swap from Boxster S to Boxster base model

Recommended Posts

Can I put a set of 2000 Boxster S red Brembo brakes and rotors directly onto a 2006 Boxster for an upgrade or do I need adapters and different wheels? Current wheels on the 2006 are 18".

The front rotor and calipers are a bolt on swap and will clear your 18" wheels.  The rear is another story; the S cars used a different wheel hub carrier and e brake assembly, which is completely different from the base cars.  To use the S brakes on the rear, you will need to swap out the carriers for S carriers and then obtain the e brake system for the S car as well.  Not a cheap proposition unless you have a wrecked S sitting around you can cannibalize, and don't mind a lot of work...........

And if I have a 1998 Boxter, do Boxter S rear calibers (or maybe 996 from 98-03) fit?

No. The S calipers are designed for the larger diameter S rotors which will not fit without changing the rear uprights and hubs.
