[s-cars] oem silver 993tt calipers?

I did it, works fine.  Only caveot is the A8L rotor is a slightly different size, and the caliper is *slightly* offset the rotor, like 1mm.  I ignored it, and the brakes work perfectly.  Most folks who do this do ignore it.  If you want the placement perfect, machine like 1mm off the bracket where it attaches to the strut housing.

Also, super important, get the bolts when you buy the brackets.  If you don't (like me), you'll need to cut the factory bracket to strut housing bolts (trivial if you have the tools), and buy Porsche 993TT caliper to bracket bolts (77mm, a bit too long, but they work fine).  There was a listing for 72mm bolts, but I couldn't get/find them.  The thread pitch on these bolts is funny, 12 x 1.25 or there abouts, and they are hard to find.

Good Luck
