Default 993 big brake kit

Feeler I'm might be making brake brackets for 993 calipers aka bigred etc. If this gets lot of interest, I will be making rear brake brackets for the 318ti. Brackets will be CNC 7075 aircraft aluminum.

Most of what you are doing is already available, and the demand is very very low. You just don't need more than what the later model year vented rotors provide in terms of stopping performance. Even with a swap, I think the vented rotors are more than adequate.

Agree. Just don't look as cool.

Ed lists the part number for the calipers on the 3rd page or so. Pretty sure those are 993 calipers, no? Looks like the 351426 part number is for that model span of 911.

I think they look great, and I'm sure they are very good calipers, but the market for this kind of thing is rather small, that's all I was saying.
