i think amungst the two there is a VAST difference. Maybe what the car is going to be used for would be the smarter question. Drag racing- 06 brakes but stock will be fine. Serious tracking- bigger the better. Or if you just want to spend money, bigger is better. lol

+1 for stoptechs ...back when i was shopping for brakes, i was considering the wilwoods but they apparrently didnt have dust seals which make it a higher maintenence item, (unless they offer that in a newer line now).

Bias will be a little off but you can deal with it. I am going to put Brembos up front and the stock wrx in the rear for a little bit.

Do you have anything done to your brakes right now? If you have not I bet buying good pads and brake lines will make you happy.

i've been tracking my car with brembo gt bbk up front and stock out back(with racing brake rotors). car actually brakes really hard, but i'm upgrading to the racing brake rear kit for better bias.

remember one thing, a bbk won't decrease your stopping distances. more than likely it will take longer to stop. bbk's are for consistency. they handle heat better during hard driving = less fade.

if this is just a street car, the 06 setup with some ss lines, hawk hps pads and motul fluid will make a world of difference.

he speaks truth


what decreases braking distance is contact patch and rotational mass

increase the contact patch and decrease the rotational mass and you will have one hard stoppin bastage!

JDM Brembos are fairly inexpensive and work very well. Just make sure your wheels will fit over them..

I have the 04 STI brembos on my RS and am quite happy with the setup. we will see in the near future how they handle the track conditions... like WgnWheel said. it depends on what the car is going to be used for, 06 breaks for street use imo. Good luck with either setup though, both will be great

compared to? Brembos? Price/Performance
Compared to 03-05 stock? 4/2 pistons

Those are the reasons I've seen listed.

Are the rotors the same? Are the '06 calipers a bolt-on for '02-'05?

Ok, I tried to search and so far only found out that the front rotors are the same. The rears may be larger.
