Macan Vs TTS callipers

ok, so a 14mm bolt passes through the knuckle hole them?
i think i had this backwards. i had it in my head that the knuckle is threaded and the bolt passes through the caliper eyelets

The bolt is 21mm, and the knuckle gets sandwiched between the bolt head and the Macan caliper (imagine the calipers are the carriers in the DAP video).

There should be no modification required on the bolt, caliper, or knuckle for a Golf R or GTI AFAIK

Looking at both mk6 R and mk7 PP rotors indicate that the 66mm pad height of the Power Stop pads will provide perfect coverage of the braking surface of the rotor as long as the pad is able to be positioned correctly over the rotor.

nono0044, can you measure the pad height of you STI pads and see if the material is in fact 55mm or 60mm like mine. Also, is there some overhang of your pads on the outer diameter of the rotor? If so, how much? If you can't, I'll be test fitting this weekend.

Just measured my Endless pads: 60mm

Uh I'll have to remove the Centric pads to measure the height and double check if theres an overhand or not. But visually looking, the pads are dead on to the edge of the rotor

That's interesting. The pads are 60mm in height and the swept area height is 67mm for PP and 66.5 for the mk6 R then we'll always have significant unswept area. I'll measure PP pad height this weekend.

So measured stock PP pads. Height was 63.5mm.

Looks like enough room to run mk6 R 345mm rotors with the Brembos and we'll end up with less than 2mm top and bottom of unswept area.

I'd love to know the pad material height on the Macan and Q5 3.0l.

I can confirm 17" RPF1s DO NOT clear the Macan calipers. The wheel face clears with a 5mm spacer but the caliper rubs the barrel

17x7.5 tire rack sport edition P4 wheels DO clear with 12mm spacers. Wheel offset is 42mm

I have confirmed 17 x 7.5 Konig runlites do fit with a 5mm spacer and 18 x 7.5 Pretorias fit with a 10mm spacer, with 5mm you have 2mm clearance and that isn't enough for me.

Could someone get a rough estimate of the minimum barrel diameter you’d need to clear these? From the hub centerline out to the furthest part out of the caliper? Looking at this conversion but I run 17” enkei TSP-5 for winter. The no-go for RPF1s isn’t filling me with hope!

These as in the Macan ones or the TTS ones? I posted the caliper template for the Macan ones either in this thread or the other one.

Yeah I tried that (thanks) - no chance. That template said for the Audi B8 platform though, is that the same 340mm rotors?

They run 345mm rotors. Should be around the same, especially if people are trying to run 345mm mk6 rotors.

Not sure what about the RPF1 that makes the caliper not clear the barrel

The B9 audi A4 lists 338mm rotor are 57.1mm tall so the offset is way off when you look at the 49.7 mm Golf R rotor. So 7.4mm would have to be moved (manufacture a bracket) in order to use the A4 B9 calipers on a mk7 ,mk6, ect.

Looking forward to see the results on the Macan Brake setup.
So doing some research, I found that a 2017-2019 Infiniti qx30 front rotor is 320x30x57.1mm. I have a set of a4 b9 calipers and i test fit them on my non pp gti. With the stock 312x25x49.7 rotors on it, the pad was at the very edge of the rotor, with only 1 mm lip on the rotor. There is enough room left in the caliper for the 4mm difference in the radius of the rotors. You think this might be the solution to the 7mm offset of the a4 to mk7 calipers?

Had them installed yesterday! Everything went smoothly, the techna brake lines were perfect fit, bedding in the centric PQ-pro pads but experiencing some brake squealing when coming to a stop!
What spec rotors?

My PQ squeak as well if they're a bit wet

Hoes the feel and the travel compared to the OE callipers? Do they actually feel any stronger?
Is there any pad overhang at the front of the disks?
