Front Notes:

86 944 TURBO ONLY: requires machining of front hub and longer wheel studs (65mm) Our big rotor kits are a "hat" type that fits over the hub instead of bolting from behind. This requires machining the O.D. of the 86' hub to 6.180" dia. This gives you an upgrade path to the 87-up spindles and hubs, which are stronger than the 86'. If you are already using the 87-up hubs, then there is no modification required. 1/4" Wheel spacers required on front and rear wheel to clear calipers. Minimum 8" wheels required; 16" modular or 17" required for Red Caliper upgrade  
Machine 87-up spindles to use with 86' control arms $450
Machine O.D. of 86' hub $300 
65MM wheel studs (qty 10) $250

Rear Notes

It is not necessary to upgrade the rear brake system to balance the front out. Balance can be adjusted with the installation of a brake bias valve (see below) - the stock rear caliper has enough hydraulic pressure available to do the job.



Master Cylinder

No Upgrade Required




Brake bias valve - TILTON 7-position click

reduces brake pressure maximum of 60%


Brake bias valve - rotary knob style.

14 turns lock to lock
