Default STi Brembos vs Evo Brembos

Are they exactly the same? Just differ in color? Anyone know the dimensions?

They are very very similar, but not the same. The biggest difference that I know of is that the evo calipers have an external line that connect the 2 different sides of the caliper, where as the sti calipers have the fluid line internally. Just visually, the casting appear to be very similar other then that...

Would they be a direct replacement or would I need that external line you were talking about?

The EVO calipers have larger pistons than the STi calipers..they would overbias the front if you managed to install them on an STi. They do use the same pads front and rear though.

and notice how the evo brembo's are mounted on the other side of the wheel (fore) than the sti (aft).
I've always kinda wondered the reasoning behind the mounting position of a caliper...such as in this case (either fore or aft on a particular wheel). what benefits and drawbacks are there for either position?

I don't see any heat dissipation advantage with either....stopping power either...seems arbitrary maybe, just depending on where the mfr. wants to run brake lines? I've never looked up any of this, it may as well be in another thread.

lets discuss

caliper location is usually dependent on where there steering linkage and suspension connect. There is not benefit to a leading or trailing design, but the caliper should be clocked as cose to the 3 or 9 o'clock position as possible to reuce knockback as much as possible which is limited by the suspension.

OK, so this is an old thread, but because I'm interested in red calipers behind my black wheels (sorry, just one of those things)- I was thinking this would be a good option to do a simple swap- so far doesn't seem to be that way-

Anyone have a definitive answer?

Thanks,

Frey

It is not a direct bolt on. The bolt centres distance is slightly different on the EVO vs STi, the bolt used is slightly different size, EVO has front mounted calipers and STI has rear mounted calipers (ie. Piston order is backwards).

People have use EVO Brembos with some mod you just have to search for it.

It will be easier to just paint your Brembos red.
