Default Brembo calipers GC8

Had the newage STI Brembo brakes fitted to my classic GC8. What do you think?

Ahh! I can hear him say "crap!"


They look nice. Did you install the Brembos on all four corners? A friend of mine completed the same conversion on his GC not too long ago.

Nice work!!!,

I own a MY99 Impreza Turbo too GC8, and I bought those brakes and disks from STI 2003 ebay supplier!

Are they going to fit easy on our iternational type WRX?

Did you build any adaptor?

Did you change hubs?

The fronts will fit without any problem, providing the wheels have enough clearance.
Rears will involve much more work, like adaptorws, or other hubs/axles.

Looks really good!

Great... a put them and they fit OK, except for the wheels, I did have to change original 16" by 17" and 8.5 in offset to have enough space for calipers

I havenīt even tried rear ones already
