why are you going for these over either CJ's brembo porsche set up for 1500, or Doug kauer's Stoptech setup which is on sale right now for 1650? I know the WP ones are 6 and 8 piston but I think even out at the track, the Stoptechs and the Porsches will be plenty of braking power.<p>Oh and for pictures, Kevin (the underlord) on Volvospeed has them on his car, you can see pics of it there. Fine I'll be nice.<br>360mm 6 piston behind 19" Heico Volution's<br><IMG SRC="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y236/98S70R/WP%20Brakes/IMG_0290Large.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y236/98S70R/WP%20Brakes/IMG_0288Large.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (Greenchunks)

Just looking at the options out there, I haven't purchased anything yet.<p>IPD's kit (CJ's) says that 15MM spacers are needed for Volans and Titans, so I assume my Satelites are in the same boat.

Re: Big Brake Kit from Viva Performance (Kaizai)

The Winner calipers are much smaller than the stop tech and the brembo calipers so they fit behind the stock offsets pretty well. Stoptech and 993TT brembos are very similar in size and design. Willwood also makes a kit for the S/V/C70s but don't waste your money...

those are my brakes... I love 'em... much less obvious than the 993's, if that's what you're going for.<p>Wilwoods are the WORST BBK you could ever even think about putting on your car. <p>the 330mm 6 piston WP's fit behind 17" OEM rims with no problems at all.
