Porsche Boxster brakes...

BIRA doesn't sell the calipers or any other components other than
the brackets.

A Boxster setup will probably run you less than $1k. Calipers around
$200, lines about $100, rotors $150, bracket $200? Check BIRA's
web page and join BIRA if you want more info.

I'm sure we all know about BIRA big brake stuff where they supply big
brake conversions using either the Porsche Boxster brakes or the 996
brakes. I just want to know if anyone knows how effective the Boxster
units are against those of the 996 if fitted onto a type-44 barge. What
do 996 calipers cost these days from BIRA? Last time I heard, it was a
few thousand for a front setup.

I thought I'd throw this out there on the list so when I check my e-mail
during my vacation in Bali then I will have at least some interesting
reading. :) As opposed to tonnes of work related e-mail where they'll
probably just be swearing at me! :(
