Pretty sure 360 mm is fine think the AP`s come with 355mm to go under 18`s however some wheel styles will foul the caliper if its a spoked rim that goes to the edge of the wheel fine though i think some of the dished type alloys with chrome rim might be a problem as the spokes curve in earlier if ya get me.

Think porsche use brembo`s dont they?? my choice would be AP`s to be honest,but if theyre alot cheaper they`ll be fine.

By the way you`ll probably need to either get the rear arches rolled or trimmed for 18`s never mind 19`s and width wise would recommend 7.5 rather than 8in wide as its more work still-7.5 x 18`s et45 i believe(may be wrong)215/35x18 tyres on mine -40mm lower and no work needed on front(however got pretty hard suspension so theres minimal roll)

Hope that helps.

Would have thought really straight fwd 2 bolts hold ya existing caliper on cant remember if its one or 2 sml bolts hold ya existing disc to hub remove the hose new kits come with all the stuff inc braided brake hoses(iirc) just a direct fit, well mates tarox were a few yrs ago on a pulsar.(dont go a bundle on tarox though)
Bleed ya brakes after-sorted.Cant remember if ya have to bolt the bells to the discs or wether theyre pre-assembled but no big deal to drop a few bolts through an tighten em,though recommend checkin them after they`ve been on the car a short while .

Alyns the man to speak to re brakes as petes said AS Performance.
