They are just cheap empi brakes with 205mm adaptors. They were already on the transaxle. I would rather have a set of stock 67 type 1 brakes so i could have my emergency brake back.

heres the kit your asking about though.

Cool thanks. I thought the rear looked like the non-turbo 944 calipers, couldn't see the 4 bolt pattern from pick. Your bus looks sick. =D>

My spindles are not flipped yet so the wheel should sit a bit more centered in the tub after the torsion angle relaxes a bit.

I can't justify dropping big bills on a A-1 or vintage speed. So i just made my own "hideaway" exhuast from some exhuasts that i had laying around.

Finally getting around to hooking everything up so i can Run the 1915cc

I just scored this original full or 3/4 lenth HWE rack that someone hacked into a shorter rack. ](*,)
