Default Questions about upgrading to STi brakes

Ok, I looked around for a while and Ive asked questions and I have decided on doing the 04 sti Brembo Brake upgrade for the wrx.

from what I understand I need to get -

1- Brembo Front Calipers

2- Brembo Front rotors

3- Brembo Rear Calipers

4- Rear rotors that have same diamater as STI rotor but smaller brake drum for the smaller wrx ebrake

5- Brake adapter so the rear calipers will fit


ok... so my questions now are...

where do i get this special rear rotor? (rallysportdirect recomended wrxbrakes.com and they didnt carry it from what I can tell)

and, I have been told by RallySportDirect.com that the Kartboy adapter only works on the 2 pot 06-07 WRX rear calipers NOT the brembo rear calipers? Can anyone confirm this?

Also... if the above is correct, I need to get the Brembo adapter, and the Brembo adapter only. Where can I find this? I have google'd and ebay'd and I am having no luck... maybe I am just dumb, but some classic Nasioc assistance would be much appreciated!

thanks a bunch in advance!

There is a lot of info in the "brembo to wrx swap info STICKY" You should check there. Kartboy does make a bracket for it and WRXbrakes does carry the rotors. WRXbrakes sells them both, contact them to get all the info on anything else you need. The fronts are a direct bolt on from a 04-07 STI as long as you get 04 sti front rotors, and the areas need the bracket and the special rotors. I also would recommend SS lines/Fluids/good pads in addition to these (if you don`t have them already)

The Rotors from WRXbrakes made by DBA: DBA 2657 Rotor

I have the good fluids and good pads but i suspect the ss lines would be a good upgrade since im down there.

I contacted wrxbrakes and asked them what they think.

I think I lot of places sell this rotor and bracket but they dont come out and advertise that they do. I just need to talk to more people.

When I get the info Ill post where I found them.

WRX brakes... do you have a package or can you throw together a package for front and rear rotors/pads/brackets for WRX's? Or is there such a package currently?
