Thanks!

I actually pieced the kit together myself from eBay and pelicanparts. The front calipers are new OE 996 GT3 PCCB yellow, w/ TRW pads (Iirc the producer of the OE Porsche pads). Sourced from eBay

New 997TT steel rotors at all 4 corners from Sebro Germany, which are 350mm vs the standard 996 turbo 330mm. Also sourced from eBay. The front 6 pot GT3 brakes bolt up to the 350mm rotors.

The rear calipers are stock 996 turbo refinished to Speed Yellow to match the front, with the AP rear caliper spacers and 997TT extended bolts to space the caliper out for the larger 997TT rotor. TRW pads in the rear as well. Pads came from pelicanparts.

I was able to piece together this kit for surprisingly cheaper than I was expecting. eBay turned out to be a great source for the calipers and rotors.

Took the car for a drive this morning to bed in the brakes. The car drives like a new car again after the complete front end rebuild. Very happy. Not even the slightest vibration in the steering wheel.

Added 300 miles on the odometer driving with the PCA-SB folks up to Lake Hughes via back-country roads.
Then took it to the car wash to remove the insect carcasses.

Front and rear gear oil change. I was half tempted to pull out the front driveshaft while I was in there but got lazy.

Wasn't today, but I installed a 997.2 GT3 shifter earlier this week. Brilliant, love it.

I see that some use that instead of the 997 SSK. What's the difference?

997SSK is all plastic. The 997.2GT3 shifter has more metal bushings in it. It has longer throws than the 997SSK because it is designed to be used with the shorter shift lever that is mounted on the GT3 gearbox. The now discontinued 996Cup shifter had even more metal in it and even a slightly longer throw. All the GT and Cup gearboxes used the short selector lever essentially creating a short shifter at the gearbox. It's a $90 part that can be retrofitted to the TT Gbox..
