Found calipers on ebay for $170 each side.

Apikol sells brackets for $240 which is absurd

yes it's alot.unfortunately no one else makes them to keep the bracket price under control. but you can still find used brackets online from ppl parting out their kit.

if your getting these off of Ebay used. get all the maintenance items in my list. also get new dust seals. you don't want them leaking on the car.

wheel spacers, & porsche vibration dampers arrived today.
Hit a little snag though. While checking the Perf Diesel brackets I found that the bolts supplied from apikol dont match up. So i ponied up the dough and bought the apikol brackets. If anyone wants the Perf Diesel brackets for a side project or feel like figuring out the bolts required let me know

piston size/area



1. stock front caliper:


Golf/GTI - Ate FN3 54 mm caliper: 2290 mm˛

S3/R32/R - FNRG 57 mm: 2552 mm˛



2. aftermarket - proper match:


Boxster: 40 mm + 36 mm > 1257 mm˛ + 1018 mm˛ = 2275 mm˛

Brembo GT caliper A: 40 mm + 36 mm > 1257 mm˛ + 1018 mm˛ = 2275 mm˛

Stoptech ST-40: 38 mm + 34 mm > 908 mm˛ + 1134 mm˛ = 2043 mm˛




3. aftermarket - poor match:


Forge: 707 mm˛ + 1046 mm˛ + 1164 mm˛ = 2917 mm˛

Q7/Touareg/Cayenne (three variants):

34/36/38 mm : 907.920 + 1017.876 + 1134.115 = ~ 3060 mm˛
32/36/38 mm : 804.248 + 1017.876 + 1134.115 = ~ 2956 mm˛
30/34/38 mm : 706.858 + 907.920 + 1134.115 = ~ 2749 mm˛



4. master cylinder diameter:

- 22,22 mm > 388 mm˛ (Mk.V GTI)
- 23,81 mm > 445 mm˛ (Mk.V R32, Mk.VI GTI, Golf R)
- 25,40 mm > 507 mm˛ (RS3 + TT-RS)



ps
If you know the piston diameter: Pi * radius˛ = area

Will do...Nice work on the calc's BTW....The Brembo's feel perfectly balanced regarding Bias, and this pretty much verifies it..
