He was correct ordering only the parts that were needed other than the sensors since he did not know that the person I bought them from in Germany included them with the calipers/pads and rotors. And as he said all along, the brake booster did not need to be replaced. He took the car for a test ride and if you knew his background, which is on his web site, no one should doubt him. Anyway, they feel great and look great and I am very happy with my decision; those were the one option I debated when I was ordering and if my SA had not talked me out them I would not have had to go through with this. I was going to take a lot of pictures but for one I was cleaning my wheels before they went back on and for two, it was a real basic job of unbolting the old one, installing the new ones with the required parts and bleeding the brakes, which took 1 and occasioanlly 2 guys about 2 1/2 hours to complete. I will complile a parts list for those who would like to do the same.






This is an awesome thread... thank you so much for sharing Bob! I am planning to do the same upgrade and was wondering if you could answer a few more questions?

1) I already have the same rotors and brake pads but need to order all the other parts in your list...
2) did you order all your parts from Sunset? Do you have a contact there that we should use (already familiar with the project)?
3) I have a 911.1 targa 4... can you confirm your model?
4) can you confirm that the adapter was 9P2.622.315. I'm pretty sure it is, but just want to confirm.

Thx!

PCCB rotors of 996/997 are version 1, 991.1 version 2, 991.2/992 version. 3.

They changed the brake booster as this is clearly described in the official Porsche parts number. PCCB brake booster in 991.2 is different than Steel booster.
PCCB brake booster in 991.1 is the same with Steel booster.
The reason is that based on their request in order for the car to be covered from Porsche warranty it has to be identical as comes out from the factory.
As i said before brake booster replacement was 500$ cost therefore minimum comparing to the whole extra cost for the PCCB upgrade.

Lesson learned. NEVER buy a New Porsche WITHOUT PCCB.

Even if you plan to track your car buy the PCCBs and Sell them. You can make money.
I know but I wanted to see the final list of items you had installed as a cross-check to my list, which would help answer judd10's question. In regards the brake booster, I understand your reasoning regarding warranty but while the part is about $500 there labor on top of that and I was told by a couple places that it can be a bitch to get to and again, there is no difference in anything otherwise so it seems that possibly just the part# changed.

My installer ordered the parts for me since he gets a discount but you can check the regular parts places that many here us such as Suncoast and Sunset and also Annapolis Porsche Parts, who also take returns without restocking fees, etc., Getporscheparts, Gaudin, etc. Some charge a lot more than others for shipping so if you are trying to save every penny check them all but most are very close, other than your local dealer of course. Sorry for the mistake in the parts list and I corrected the typo as I had an extra "1"(see above). By the way, when Sid and I were working on compiling a list of required parts for the conversion at least 4 Porsche parts places provided different parts lists so if a place trys to tell you that you need something that is not on the list don't be afraid to question them!

Finally, I have a 2019 Targa GTS albeit your Red S brakes are the same as what came on mine.

one set for 991.2 / 991 Turbo, same as yours 11500EUR

and discs sets front and rear discs for 992 without calipers 9000EUR

all discs brand new.

Also one full set for 997 Turbo 10500EUR

and a full set for 970 Panamera 8500EUR"
