Default Evo Brembo on WRX Clarification :[

Anyone tracking/running with these on a WRX? I have a set of Evo 9 front Brembos, that I was thinking of installing on my 2013 WRX. I've come across quite a few threads with people making them work (taking off -.1mm from spindle and calipers) and drilling out the mounting holes.

The piston order has me confused, or at least the fact that everyone in the threads is arguing about it. The smaller piston must be first for proper wear. This I know, in order to install the Evo brembos on a WRX with the smaller piston being first the bleeders would face down because the Evo calipers are on the leading edge of the rotor compared to an Impreza. so the passenger side evo caliper would be on my Driver side and vice versa.

What if I put them on opposite (smaller piston first, bleeder facing down) and then swapped the bleeders to face up?

Can someone shed some light that has experience?

Here is the thread of the guy that has his Evo calipers on his wrx im assuming upside down since the bleeders are facing up.

I know nothing on the Evo brembos on a WRX, but I do know that the caliper bleeder should always be up top. So, the poster's picture in the thread you posted are correct orientation. Gravity and all...
