Alternative to 930 Calipers

Recommended Posts

Is there an alternative option to 930 brake calipers, from a later model 911?  I am putting the finishing touches to a 911 SCRS Belga replica rally car and it's running 930 brakes front and rear and one of the rear calipers has been modified around the bleed nipples.  I wondered if there was a caliper from a later 911 or other Porsche model that might work as a simple update/ replacement for the 930 caliper - particularly on the rear, but also the front for future reference??  Thanks, Dave

If you search you will find a huge amount of info on various brake upgrades and modifications. Most would rent their hair at anyone wanting to get rid of their 930 calipers, they are sought after and very very expensive.  
There is nothing particularly simple about other Porsche caliper swaps, most if not all need at least and adapter.

It’s worth doing a search on Pelican Parts 911 Technical section for 930 brake threads.  Lots of detail about options and there’s a braking guru called Bill Verburg who gives a lot of advice and has comparative performance data available.  A couple of examples below.

I don't really want to dispense with the calipers, its just that one had been 'modified' by a previous owner who obviously had issues with the bleed nipple.  I'm going to see if I can source one/ two via Porsche...

Thanks Ian, I'll follow up with that line of enquiry.  Dave

930 rotors with modified 944T calipers (copied from Bill Verburg website), under 944T Fuchs. Almost a copy of SCRS.

If you run 17's you can fit Big Reds to 930 discs which would be even better.

I’ve fitted as part of a full restoration a set of Stuttgart classicas brake upgrade , I bought the brakes two years ago and as it was an ongoing restoration didn’t get bled until last month.

although I wasn’t happy with the service I received ( that’s another story ) the brakes are exceptionally good once bedded in.

these are 6 pot front and 4 pot rears. EBC yellow stuff pads. You would in my opinion need to replace on my 76 the brake lines into the calipers to banjo bolt types.

these also fit within the original 15” wheels
