I currently have 2 piston calipers in front cause the pre 95 jap spec twin turbo cars came with the smaller brakes found in the N/A U.S spec cars.
I am buying the front 4 piston calipers with slotted rotors U.S spec .
Can I move the 2piston calipers and rotors which I had in front to the rear ? cause I have single piston rears!

I doubt it, because the rotors in the rear need to accommodate the "drum type" parking brake and if I remeber correctly, the N/A brakes have the 2 pistons on the same side whereas the turbo rear calipers have opposing pistons.

Maybe Jeff Watson knows for sure, why don't you email him.

Randy, when you find out, can you post it here or email me? I'm converting my brakes to TT-spec, and was concerned about the parking brake. Like... besides calipers and rotors swap, what else is involved? Thanks.

Ryan's correct on this one.....the front and rear brakes will need to be from a TT if you want the complete upgrade. The calipers
and rotors are an easy swap to the U.S. NA's....also make sure you get the correct hardware for the pads.

Jeff, if I want TT brakes in the rear for my NA, would the parking brake assembly be the same?

In other words, besides TT rear calipers and rotors, what else do I need for the swap? Thanks!
