We now offer brackets for non-M3 E36 and E46 cars so you can install the popular Porsche Brembo 996/Boxster-S caliper upgrade. CNC Machined Brackets are designed to fit a Porsche 996 Brembo front caliper to the E36 AND E46 non-M front spindle.
Two rotors options are available for this brake kit. The first option is the standard E46 M3 325x28mm front rotor. The standard E46 M3 rotor with fit with 17 inch wheels. Utilizing standard E46 M3 rotors requires 12mm to be machined from the mounting boss of the caliper. When you purchase brackets from us, we offer this service at a discount for additional charge (select caliper machining option and add to cart).
The 345mm diameter rotor option is for 18 inch wheels only, but requires no modification to the calipers. The E46 M3 CSL 345x28mm floating rotor is a bolt on setup for this bracket an a 996 caliper.
The studs are made from stainless steel. Calipers are secured to the bracket/stud combo with supplied ARP 12 point nuts and washers.
Although we are the only producers of this bracket, similar style brackets for other vehicles sell for $350 to $500 per pair.
Calipers used for this conversion are Front Calipers from the 1999-2004 Porsche 996 (non-turbo), the Boxster S or the Cayman S. All these calipers are made from the same Brembo casting.
The Porsche caliper part numbers for this conversion are:
996.351.425 (driver side)
996.351.426 (passenger side)
Calipers will vary in color between Porsche model and options, but the castings will be the same as will the piston sizes. A pair of calipers can regularly be found between $350 and $450. If you are having trouble finding calipers for that price, please contact us. We may just have a pair of calipers to sell within that price range or we can direct you to one of our caliper sources.
Proper pad placement with this bracket gives a full sweep of the rotor surface. No rust rings on your rotor when using this brake setup.
*For off-road use only.
*Please take a look at the product pictures. On non-M spindles, you will need to round off the squared portion on the outside mounting ear. This will allow clearance for the brackets to bolt up properly.
