  • bermbo 18z claipers on a b3 coupe quattro

    So i am building up a 400hp car and i have always known that I would need to upgrade the brakes but I was going to cross that path when I got there. However, I have just come across some Brembo 18z callipers form a Porsche caman I believe, they are £350 so quite resizable however I am not sure if this is the way to go, I don’t know how much work it will be to fit them. I know I will need a adapter plate for them to sit on but I’m unsure where to get some and how much that will cost, I also know I will need new discs, pads and brake lines, but I’m not sure if that is it and if a stock b3 brake master will run them (it does have abs) also I don’t think that they will fit in my stock wheels.
    I know a lot is just a case of getting bits and pieces but I would like to see what you guys all think as im sure you have seen this done once or twice I have looked throw a bit of stuff but most was for the urs4 and b4.
    thanks for the read

    There are adapters out there for 18Zs. IMHO they are not a good caliper choice as the adapter is a compromised design to fit the B3/B4 and the calipers weigh a ton. Add the weight of large single piece discs and 18" wheels you'll need to fit them you have a huge increase on unspruing mass. IMHO the Porsche 996/996 4 pot and 6 pot calipers are a far better choice.
    People fit 18z and 17z mostly because they look big and impressive and they are cheap.

        Ok that’s fine I guess I’ll keep my eyes out for a set of 996 calipers.

          I believe that the 996 use the rs2 adapters as well so if anyone can tell me where I can get some of a good price it would be much appreciated

              Will 996 calipers work with 17” wheels?
