HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Bringing this back from the dead. Rob sent me his Z06 Caliper, and I will be making the mounting adapters. I am working on finalizing the CAD model I have before sending it out to be machined. I will be doing these for 350mm Cayenne rotors using an 87 NA spindle. In the future I might do one for the turbo spindle as well, if I ever get my hands on one.

Material, I'm thinking 1/2" steel like Rob's were. Pricewise, I'm going to aim for $100 for two powdercoated adapters, with four 10.9 M12x1.5x25 cap head bolts, four M14x2x35 Head head bolts, and four 2mm M14 shims to center the caliper on the rotor. I have 18" Turbo Twist wheels for fitment verification.

Let me know if you are interested, I will try and get these done shortly.

According to Porsche parts, the 87 up NA spindle and 87 up turbo spindle are the same part numbers. The only change to that would be the turbo s spindles are different.

I thought the Turbos had a 92mm or something along those lines bolt spacing, where as the NA is 76mm. I don't remember the exact numbers, but I have them saved at home.

Actually, these adapters should work for all NA spindles. Since the bolt spacing is the same early to late. Just the difference in hub spacing.

That may be the turbo s that has 92mm. Also, the M030 optioned cars have a different spindle.
But, NA and regular turbo's have the same spindle.

Ah, ok, that makes sense then. So Turbo and NA, but Turbo S has different spindle mount spacing, but still axial. And M030 has radial mounting.

Ok, I believe I have a finished concept.  Is anyone interested in a pair of adapters?

This drawing just has the critical dimensions.  The part is slightly rotated upward on the spindle.



Cardone has the calipers for $183 each for refurbished... Can't beat that. And right now they have a 20% off with free shipping. $300 for a pair of 6 piston refurbished calipers.

I measured one of my 87 Turbo spindles, non S, and the measurement was 94mm. I will also try to get a measurement from a 86 Turbo spindle but I'm guessing that will also be 94mm.

If you ever made the adapters for the turbo spindle I would definitely buy a set.

Feel free to PM me to discuss further.

I can make a CAD model and go from there. I'd like to be able to offer them for the Turbo spindles as well. I'll send you a PM.

I believe I have a working model for the 951 Spindles.  The only concern is the upper mounting bolt on the 951 spindle.  I think it will interfere with the brake line too much.  Counter boring the hole and using a flat head bolt would solve this.  However, I can't find any in M12x1.5.  I'll keep searching and see what I can find.  This same bolt would probably be useful for the 944 adapter as well.    

EDIT:  No luck finding the flat head bolt with fine threads unfortunately.  What might work is counter boring the hole for a regular socket head bolt.  I believe with a banjo bolt, it will clear for the turbo spindles.

I realized I missed a feature on the caliper in my last drawing. This will work better for the turbos.

Got your PM. I can't reply back, not enough posts. My email is two one one lotus@comcast.net, use numbers for the two one one. The caliper mounting spacing was measured with a tape measure not a caliper. I will try to get you pics this week.

I have some good and bad news... The c6 z06 calipers are actually very difficult to obtain. Many places list them in stock, but they do not actually have them. I'm thinking of changing course. I think the CTS-V 6 piston, also used on ZL1, ATSv, and C7 Z06 are better options. They would go with the 350mm rotors. I believe the base C7 and camaro SS size brembos could work with the 330mm rotors and the same brackets.

I own a set of front Z06 calipers. I may still try to adapt them to my car.

I have a 951 and 944 design that are 99% complete, so let me know if you want a pair.

Just the bare adapters, no bolts or anything, I'm thinking $75, I need to send them in to get a proper quote though.  I would include the needed shims with that.

Turns out my calipers are bad. Apparently someone way over tightened the bleeder screws and stripped out the threads in the calipers. As soon as i find another set, i'll probably order your adapters.

Send them in for refurbs maybe? I think the centric ones aren't bad, just have a very expensive core price.

Got my quote back. I can keep pricing where I planned. $100 per kit. If you want just the bracket without bolts and just bare steel, it will be $75. I am waiting on confirmation from one member, but I have these available for both 951 and 944 (early and late). The early 944 will need the hubs machine to fit cayenne rotors, or have a wilwood hat made to use their rotors.

Superman, maybe some of these pictures will help you in regards to the bolt issue w/ the brake line.
