Saw your notes on the Es2 list.


The 996 calipers bolt to the RS2 carriers.. I'm assuming those calipers
you speak of are the non turbo calipers, didn't know they fit to the
bolt pattern on the RS2 brackets, which were designed to work with the
993tt calipers.


I'm going to try and get a set of the 996 calipers to place onto my 95
S6, do you know if they work with the RS2 carriers and the A8 rotors?
Then as soon as I confirm the fit on those, I'm going to try the setup
on my UrQ with some hats I have and move things around to fit.


<<<<I have done the S2 5-bolt conversion. In the rear I'm running stock
S2 rear rotors and stock coupe quattro calipers. Up front I have 323x30
A8 rotors,

RS2 caliper brackets and Porsche 996 4-piston monobloc calipers.
Everything is a straight bolt-on with the exception of some custom
bending on the hard brake lines going to the 996 calipers. Very nice
setup but there are countless other options for front and rear. Just
depends on what you want to spend. My setup cost me less than $1000
front and rear including the hubs.>>>>
