GT37turbo brakes upgrade for a C2 Cab

Well, if you wanted to go with the Mk1 GT3 brakes there are kits available for around $4000 (US) uninstalled. The kits include front & rear red calipers, 13" rotors, OEM brake pads (you could always use Pagids), wheel carriers, adapters, hubs, shims and the rest of the nuts and bolts hardware.

If you want the MY04 GT3 or GT2 (the GT2 and new GT3 share the same brakes) then you first have to decide on cast iron or ceramics. The ceramics are around $11,000 (without the wheel carriers, adapters or hubs). Maybe Gert can get a better price?

I don't know of anyone offering a cast iron GT3/GT2 brake upgrade kit (yet). But I would guess it to be in the $5-6000 range. Again you will need adapters, wheel carriers, etc., etc..

If you want the cast iron TT brakes (same as above you'll need adapters, wheel carriers, etc.) they a should be about $4-5000.

If someone knows of better pricing please say so...

One more thing... since your car is an 03 the master cylinder and ABS should both work fine with the larger brakes -- this may not be true for older cars.

Interesting. I just checked PET. From what I can see the calipers and rear rotors are all the same parts. The front rotors are slightly different, with the GT3 using 996.351.409.91 and 996.351.410.91 and the TT using the same part number but ending in 02 instead of 91.

I think I read somewhere that part numbers ending in 9x indicated Motorsports parts but I haven't confirmed this with anyone. Given they use the same calipers, the rotors must be the same size but maybe different in thickness or something small like that?

Loren,

What about for a 2002 C4 Cab? I am thinking of upgrading to the New GT3 6 piston cailpers and steel rotors (not the ceramics). I know I will need carriers and the like, but, will I need to replace the master cylinder in a 2002? Also, will the Carrera 4 (not the 4S) require uprated carriers? Or was that only for the C2?

Thanks

Same as above but you will need different wheel carriers. Master cylinder should be okay. LOL... if it were a C4S I think this would be easy (TT running gear).
