odd 156 GTA question

H gents

A friend of mine owns a turbocharged Jetta 3 and has an oppertunity to get a set of brembos from a 156 GTA 1. The 305mm ones. the question is as follows:

1 what is the maximum disk thickness alowable (with pads)
2. is the 305 max size it will take or can it take a 312mm?

Maximum 28mm as above. Replace the discs when they are down to 26mm. You could space the calipers out to take a thicker disc, you would need to find/make longer pins etc.

305x26mm when new? Should be fine, just he will have to change the pads a little sooner, before they are completely worn out. Just to make sure the pistons don't come too far out of the calipers.
