My new brake upgrade!!

Post by capsoval » Fri Oct 01, 2010 11:48 pm

Old setup was CB's standard disk brake kit that I had crossed drilled and coated. Stopped great with my 18" rims, but my speed and power needs have gotten much greater in resent years and I was wanting to upgrade my brakes with something cool yet different.

Old setup....

Machined hub

Old rotor on top of new rotor, std 2005 911 rotor
Image

New caliper, C6 Z06 6-piston
Image

Wheel mounted back up

Its not completed yet, just wanting to show what Ive been doing progress wise. Hope it helps out others as well.

Very Slick, what did you do for the caliper mount?

What im doing is making a plate the bolt pattern of the spindle and a plate the pattern of the caliper. Then fix the caliper in the proper location and tack a plate between them. Then ill clean it all up and fully weld it off the car. I'll post pics of it, very simple but the pics may help others.

Yes, pics very helpful.

I have some 996 rears and $75 LS430 front calipers I want to try (and 996 discs) to mount on the Pile when I get back to it.
(I actually don't like the front struts I picked up, rust pitting to the point of worrying about structural integrity-be careful of parts purchases from PA)

The `vette parts are probably easier to mount.

I'm guess you just put the calipers on top to demo, but make sure you've got a top and a bottom when you actually mount them or bleeding may be a pain in the a$$!

What kind of mc are you using? If stock beetle I would interested in knowing what kind of pedal travel and feel. I've got at set of front Porsche 996 rotors & calipers I'm going to install.

I believe it a 914-6 mc, although I am not sure what 914 it came from. 55superbeetle got it for me and it worked perfect for my CB 4 wheel disks. I'll have to ask him to find out.

Great, was it bolt on? Also if you could find out if the 914-6 mc is the same as some early 911 mc that I have heard others use.

I spoke with 55superbeetle,
914 mc is 17mm bore.

914-6 mc is a 19mm bore.

Early 911 mc are the same as 914-6 mc.

It turns out the one I'm using is a 914-6 mc.
