Question for all the brake experts... I have an 02 WRX and I am looking to upgrade my brakes for 2 reasons...
1) I have had trouble with the brakes overheating, both during rallycross (brake fade almost caused me to rearend someone who decided to stop right after the finish line) and regular highway driving (stopped too hard after an offramp and got brake pad transfer to the pads causing bad vibration under braking). I want to do some track days and I'm pretty sure I would die if I kept my brakes stock.

2) Pedal feel. It sucks with the stock brakes.

So far I have bought some used 4-pot front calipers and I'm trying to choose what else to buy. I have my mind pretty much set on SS lines and HPS Pads, and I'll probably just stick to crappy AutoZone rotors since those don't seem to make much difference according to everyone.

So here is my question, would the H6 upgrade be worth it for me? Since I have the 02 calipers already it would be pretty cheap for me, about $160 from Subaru Genuine Parts. Would I notice a difference vs. the stock rotor size?
