For the time been it is good for daily used. As it can reduce speed from ~ 100mph to stop in very fast or as I want ti to be. Next is to test if it can brake later in 100m before corner for the S204.

BTW, the brake pad is ~ 20% larger then the stock STI pads.

WRXKidid775 is more helpful than not
the larger pad helps with heat dissapation.

I agree they look badass but was it worth the coin?

your car your choice.

Porsche brembo conversion Q's

Hey mate,

I'm new to this site (from Australia) and was after some info and more pics of your Porsche 6 pot conversion. Do you have pics of the parts used the steps in the conversion and info on the rotors and custom brackets used to make it all fit together. I'm also interested in their performance. I have these same calipers from a 05 GT2 porsche (I am told) and want to fit them to my GDB WRX. All the help/info you have will be great.

Cheers Thomo

here is another 6/4 bbk PnP kit. Front rotor is 355mm x 32mm /w DS2500 brake pad.

So for run both on a F1 track w/ 5-6 hot (30km) lap seem to be ok.

Great pics mate but can you send more pics and info of your conversion as I have the same 6 pot calipers that you have used.

Can i get pics of the mounting brackets and basically just heaps of pics of the whole setup.

Also did you use 355mm rotors? What brand etc? Are your wheels 18's?

I have 18" Works Emotion CR Kai's and it looks like they will fit.

You've had your set up for awhile now. How are they performing?

What are the Pro's and Con's?

Thanks heaps for your help..

Thomo

the brembo is fitted on a S204 w/ original BBS rim offset is 54. as for the kit I hv PM u the info all can in USA. but made sure geta 4 pot in the rear as to balance up the barking system.

the gold color 6/4 pot is on a RS 18x8j offset 48. Made by JBT.

For both BBK hv been on the road for ~ 10k to 20k kms. Also been abuse on >5 track days (under hot weather 34 degC & heavy rain).

Pro: the braking power is good. easy to get compatible pad in my area. DS2500 & TSW or TWS forget the name? or u can just to the Porsche dealer tell them U need their pad for ## scooby haha...
Con: need time to order the parts from USA. ie rotor for brembo that's why I hv a spare pair.
