Porsche big red for e46?

Ok, so I found a set of Porsche 993 tt "big red" brakes for a nice price (much less then a bbk) and was wondering if someone has them in their e46 m3? if so, did you need a custom mounting bracket?

I have a friend that purchased an e36 m3 racecar with the "big reds", but cannot find a "kit" for the e46....thanks for your help!

fill us in on the details when you get it all figured out I've always wanted a p-car brake upgrade, seemed appropriate considering the cost and uselessness of most BBK
