Just drove mtnbkrs car today for Solo II. Has a brake set-up that all GC's should have had stock.

WRX rotos up front and H6 Legacy in the rear with Hawk HP+ pads.

Stopping power far exceeded my STi.

Question

How much would it be to convert my rear drums to performance discs, and upgrade my front discs?

I've got the same thing as Spideywrx, but with the H6 rotors up for grabs, in case anyone needs new rear brakes.

I am also interested in some rear disc brakes for my 97 outback sport. wrx brakes should fit on their relatively easily correct? What about an H6 rear disc brake assembly?

This is an awsome guide to upgrading from drums to disks. Worked for me!
