This mod is feasible with a custom "hat" for the 2-piece bolt together
rotors.  Carl Jerritts' 5ktq is running about with 4-pot 911 turbo
calipers and 13.5 inch rotors.  Aside from the custom "hat" a mounting
block had to be made to adapt the Porsche caliper to the Audi strut.
Everything fits just fine and it stops like the dickens....  There should
be another set of "big reds" running about on an Ur Q if I'm not mistaken,
is that right Scott J. ??????
BTW- The wheels on this car are 17 x 8" TSW Hockenheim-R's. 235/40-17 AVS
