It definitely makes a big difference in terms of the right info.

If your car has been converted to G60s, you can pretty much use any
brake kit that is made for the UrS, including the use of RS2 caliper
brackets and EuroS8 rotors (not A8), 323x30mm to convert your car to
"Big Reds."

You'll need the following parts:
993tt or 928GTS calipers (x2)
RS2 brake caliper brackets (x2)
Brake pad set for above calipers (x1)
New caliper mounting bolts for bracket to strut body (x4)
New caliper mounting bolts for caliper to bracket (x4)
Brake vibration dampeners (x4)
Euro S8 rotors (323x30mm) (x2)

You may want to consider using SS brake lines as well.

Depending on the cost of these parts, you may want to call up Tom at
Euro-Car and see if his kit if competitive, at $1400.

Also make sure that you have appropriate wheels for summer and winter
use, as only some 16" wheels will clear these brakes and that even
to some 17" and 18" wheels.

My brake system has less clearance than the "Big Red" conversion- looks
I'm running 17" wheels year-round, but I had already planned for that.
