I'm not surprised that an 08+ 2.5i brakes better than an 04 WRX, but I can say that my car brakes and feels better with 08+ WRX front brakes installed on it, you don't have to push the pedal as hard in the first place.
I'm extremely surprised that my 2.5i brakes better considering it has drums in the rear.
To each their own though, id still rather have the brace.
