I like the sound of the ECS Stage 3, Porsche 993 Bi turbo calipers. I'm hoping it's a 4pot caliper. ?1339.99.... i'm guessing that's just supplied. Would it include everything I need for fitting??
Thanx for all the info mate, do you know how long it should take to fit a kit like this, how many hours?
I never saw the stage 4 before cause i was only looking at JBR's website. You're right though, it's HUGE, thicker than stage 5 and seems cheaper than stage 5 & 3. What's the catch...lolECS Stage IV seem like the best value big brakes of the lot. 4 pot monobloc calipers (stage 3 are heavier 2 piece calipers, stage 5 are OTT 6 pots), and veeeeeery large 355x35mm two-piece discs (thicker than the stage 5 discs!).
Cheaper than both stage 3 and 5 as well!
Stage 4 is a larger version of the Stage 2v2 that I have and from what I can see uses the same rear calipers from the Boxster which are far more compact than the 993 big red calipers (and also have a smaller brake pad area). I use 17" track wheels with no problems and am confident the calipers would clear most wheel designs, but your best way to get clarification on these things is to discuss with Richard @ JBR.Just realised that stage 3 fits 17'' wheels while the stage 4 18''. I haven't got OEM 18'' but they ARE 18... how can i find out if the stage 4 will fit?
