    Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!


    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    Would you be so kind to provide more details? Thanks.

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    Just picked up my car this afternoon with some of the work listed on my sig done finally.... I now can check off Evolution Motorsport's 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade off my list of upgrades scheduled.... All I can say is WOW!!!.... and anyone out there that has driven a 996 TT knows where im coming from when I say when you jam on he brakes at 40mph and your eye balls wanna fly out of your head... Its like night and day compared to the standard 997 brakes I had before....and not to mantion the 12" monster calipers and bigger rotors that I missed so much on my old 996 TT....
    Basically Evolution Motorsports ( http://evoms.com/porsche%20ec%20art%20test.htm ) made a brake upgrade kit for the 997 by using all OEM Porsche Brake components from the 996 Twin Turbo brake front and back. "EVO Front Big Red Brake Upgrade: The OEM Brakes on the 997 are good but at only 305MM in diameter, there is room for improvement. Our Twin Turbo brake conversion is utilizes a 325MM OEM x-drilled rotor and CNC machined hat. We adapt OEM Porsche Twin Turbo Calipers for a tremendous braking improvement. The increased rotor diameter as well as the larger caliper / pad will safely reduce speeds while maintaining a firm pedal feel. Our first of its kind brake upgrade system"

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    How is that any different from the 997S brakes (the aluminum hat two-piece rotor is different, right)? Could those be bolt-on upgrades also (I think those are slighly bigger at 330mm)?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    The 996 had the same breaks like the 996 4S right?

    And generally the S has the turbo breaks right? so what's the difference?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    NO the 997S does not have the same brakes as the TT or C4S...

    Yes the TT Brakes are 2 peice.. and they are 325mm

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    the 996 C4S had the brakes with the 996 TT?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    yes...the TT and 4S had the same brakes...but the 4S and 997S do NOT have the same brakes....

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    ridiculus isnt it? the 997S is more powerful than the C4S so why have smaller brakes?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    Tha't s what I don't like about widedodys....It's only about looks ( hope the next c4s will also have more power)

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    yes my support on that~~~~

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    um, doesnt the 997S have the 996 "turbo" brakes???

    but you have the 997 so you upgraded to the "turbo" brakes... am i right?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    just found out the brakes are the same as the S....forget what I said...Dilinger

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    how do you like the fabspeed intake?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    I love it...sounds so much better

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    BD 997, just curious, between what you spent on the 19" wheels ($1550), the turbo brake upgrade ($??) and PASM ($1990) couldn't you have got a 997S (since it already has those brakes) and had 30 more HP too?

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    Correct PS CA im with you on that. On the other hand he might have his own reasons.

    BD997 why you didnt consider re painting you calipers red?

    Or placing the Boxster S red calipers? They are exactly the same as the base 997

    It was the only 997 available in the color I wanted "arctic silver"... they had 2 997's in showroom... GT SIlver 997S and Arctic silver 997(mine) ...both had same sticker price....86,000... So I took the color I liked better...plus I got 3k knocked off the sticker....i didnt care about the rims or pasm but it came with it... im throwing on 20" Techart wheels this week so doesnt matter I sold those 19" sport wheels to a 6speedonline forum member :-)

    way to go BD997, you are aaproaching the turbo price now!!!

    Re: Just Installed EVOM 996 TT Big Brake Upgrade on my 997 PICS!

    Not to beat a dead horse but I was still curious about this issue. I understood that the 997 S brakes were from the 996 Turbo/4S.
    I have the book "PORSCHE 911 ENDURING VALUES" that you can buy off the Porsche web-site. under "911 Collection". It's 100% about the 997. It's pretty good. Anyway it says-

    "The 911 Carrera S was even blessed with a modified Turbo brake system. Along with larger diameter master cylinder and increased brake boost (again, 17 percent), the Carrera S rotors boast impressive dimensions- a diameter of 330 millimeters and thickness of 34 and 28 millimeters front and rear, respectively."

    I got this book from "motorbooks.com" after reading a thread here. Definitely worth a look, and for me a great souvenir. Cost $NZ45 off motorbooks, seen it for $NZ175 at a Porsche Dealer!!
