Sir Andy’s thread is a good how to.
Short answer, yes.
Front- 3 1/2” front struts, non S Boxster calipers, adaptor, Carrera rotor
Rear - non S caliper, adaptor, Carrera rotor
Tangerine racing 911 e-brake adaptor if you want e-brakes.
Adaptors are available from Rich - A914guy@aol.com or Rebel Racing You must have 3 1/2” 911 front struts to make it work.

I thought the rear wasn’t Carrera. Isn’t it a
20mm vented SC Rotor?

thanks, i will try everybody other than tre. their prices are higher than a giraffe's ass for anything or any kind of service. i took my car there and got an estimate and it was ridiculous. i told them i had a 1975 porsche 914 not a 2020 porsche 911. jesus christ! i dont expect anybody to be cheap but damn they are not playing when it comes to cost.
