Direct fit. Quality kit for a great price. Look up the part number on Wilwood's web site and then search for it on Summit for their price. It's ~$300 cheaper than direct from Wilwood. I have a little over 2000 miles on my kit and I have absolutely no complaints.

Good luck with the Install. These have been awesome on my car..
5.5 pounds lighter per side too which is a difference you can feel..

You will need the Porsche Vibration dampers as well (not cheap) as this set-up is naturally noisy

Thank you for that link, I hope you dont mind but ill put the link in my first post so people dont have to scan the thread to find it...

In regards to the vibration dampeners are you referring to the boxter s vibration dampeners that side inside the piston?


Pelican parts has them for $18 each, so $72 total (EDIT)

No Problem...
And yes, the Dampers that go inside the pistons.

BTW I have a set of Mintex Red Box pads for these calipers with a few hundred miles on them $50 shipped.

Don't forget to flip your crossovers and nipples end to end, so the Large piston is the trailing one (on the bottom)

Trust me, the squeal will be unbearable without them! I tried lots of tricks with no success until I got these (a friend gave them to me so I lucked out there!). Even with Hawk Performance Ceramics I still get a little as the car comes to a final stop

All these calipers are Brembos.(stock Porsche calipers). Mine had just been freshly powdercoated/rebuilt and the Brembo sticker put on.
Bought em here out of the Classifieds..

These are reliable:

Not really neccessary though as the solid discs aren't too heavy (about 17 lbs).

Translation? We may own german cars but i know i dont speak german.

Id be more concerned about replacement rotor rings. Where can you get them? How much do they cost? Looks to be about $576 US plus shipping which would run you about $70-$90. +VAT So closer to $700 with shipping & tax

I want this upgrade so bad! One down side, shipping the kit internationally kills. I've just worked out an estimate of the shipping charge and turned out to be $400-$450 for the calipers only. I'll look aoround in scrap yards and hopeullfy find a wrecked Boxter S and get the calipers.
