480 turbo caliper differences

Post by cranna21 » Sun May 29, 2016 6:23 pm

Hi folks, does anyone know if there are any age differences between turbo front calipers? Looking to do a conversion on my es but I notice that brand new calipers are listed differently on eBay? You can buy ones to suit 87-96 or 91-96? Any difference?

the early models had solid discs and vented for the later ones and caliper size larger for vented if I'm correct

FYI if you still have the 14' stock wheels you will need spacers to fit the vent discs with those.
