4-Pot Rear Brakes

What's up guys. So I recently set up a front BBK with Cayenne 6-pots and I'm in the business of upgrading my rear brakes to accomodate the increated braking force of the front axle.

I've discovered that the Golf R R20 rear brakes utilize a larger diameter rotor and hence bought that to use as well as the brake calipers to fit.

I'm afraid that won't be adequate and so I am interested in sourcing the right brakes to make up for the front.

My current interests are the Porsche Boxster rear calipers or Boxster front calipers.

Does anybody have experience with this? I do recall someone CNC'd brackets to fit a bbk with an addition Viper handbrake caliper for the rears, but that is long gone.

Anybody know how I can fit Boxster calipers into the rear?

I'm guessing someone would need to fabricate mounting brackets for the calipers and determine what rotors would work with them. Anybody have expertise on the matter?
