rear brembos do they differ?

Are the rear 4-pot brembos from the 944 turbo the same as from the 968? which other porsche's have these rear calipers?

Are the early 944 calliper brackets the same as the later aluminium arm bcalliper bracket?

thanks
James

mentioned that the rear 944T 4-pot caliper bolt pattern is the same as that of 944 single piston caliper. Anyone can confirm that?

All 924/931/944/951/968 rear caliper mounts are the same, 94mm and this applies to single and four piston calipers.

The only difference is that the early calipers have PORSCHE emobossed (raised) on them and the later ones have it painted (smooth).

Also, these later (rear) calipers were used on the 911 C2 as well.

brembo

I not 100% certain but I believe the rear calipers have a smaller piston towards the front of the caliper followed by a larger piston.

o O like that Kenn

You are 100% correct, there is one larger. However, the bigger one is towards the front. This is also true with the 1986 944 Turbo front caliper as well.
