Default Brz brake up grade

Hello everyone,

I was able to get some 08 STI brimbo and 08 OEM rotors. instead of buying new rotors to fit 5x100, I was wondering if I could cross drill the OEM sti rotors. Any ideas on if and where it can be done to save some funds?

I'm a machinist (note my name haha) I have all the equipment to "precision'ly" do this and I wouldn't. Just my opinion.

Yea I figured. Never hurts to ask though. I've already bought some rotors. I'll get the swap going on Friday.

Most shops probably wouldn't even consider doing it due to liability but I will admit I re-drilled some harley rotors to fit on street bike rims for a bobber project. It's not ideal and when the rotor wears you're stuck doing it again haha

$271, I believe these should work since you have 2008 STI Brembos.

There are a bunch of other ones there too.

Brembo rotors are expensive.

Never actually looked to check how much new AP Racing 2-piece disks would cost me. Guess I'll find out.

What is your goal with cross drilling? Looking cool?

If going to get AP racing 2 piece rotors maybe should just buy the AP racing sprint kit.

That's what I did.

I'll bring this back from the dead. I ended up buying some DBA 4000 cross drilled rotors and SS brake lines, along with some Hawk HPS pads. Only down side is for the rotors to be installed correctly I had to bleed them right side up then install them upside down. Here's the out come.

...or move the bleeder to the top. And pretty sure you meant calipers, rotors don't need to bleed.

You would be correct sir. I meant calipers. I could not take the bottom screw out to swap the bleeder screw. It's in there good with red loctite and ended up stripping the bottom screw. Oh well, they work perfect now.

Thank you They work freaking great. They have 2 track days under their belt so far with more to come. I never tracked the stock setup so I have no comparison.
