Default Re: T4 big brake upgrade.

Sorry for missing these posts. I don't spend as much time on here as I should.

The brakes were originally used on an ATE aftermarket brake kits. I managed to buy several calipers and have fitted them to a few different cars so far. I think they may share the same radial mounting pattern as one of the Porsche Reds but have yet to make the effort to confirm this.
I do have the CNC pattern to make more brackets should I need them.
The calipers run with the standard master cylinder. The only other mod to the brakes was to adjust the rear load sensing valve to allow for the bus being lowered.

I've covered over 10 thousand miles on the brake now and the have been faultless.

Paul.

Hi, I read this thread and am also looking to do something of the sort myself. I want to ask where did u get the measurements for the bracket? Did you find them on the internet or did you just measure them on the car? Looking forward to your reply !
