Default 2013 WRX Brembo Swap Help

Hey fellow Nasioc members, I have some questions about swapping my stock WRX brakes with Sti Brembos. I have researched and asked numerous people about the swap and I got an idea of what setup I want for the brakes. I just want to double check and see if all the parts will be compatible to each other and It will bolt right up.

Front:
2004+ Sti Brembo Calipers
DBA 4000 Series Drilled/Slotted Rotor Pair Front 5x100-Part No. DBA 42656S-10
Hawk HPS Front Brake Pads-Part No. HAW1 HB453F.585
Stoptech Stainless Steel Brake Lines Front-Part No. STP 950.47004

Rear:
2008+ Sti Brembo Calipers
DBA 4000 Series Slotted Rotors Pair Rear 5x100-Part No. DBA 42656S-10
Hawk HPS Rear Brake Pads-Part No. HAW1 HB180F.560
Stoptech Stainless Steel Brake Lines Rear-Part No. STP 950.47504

I was wondering if all these parts would bolt up and work together. Also, I heard that the E-brake needs to be modified. If anyone can recommend a link for the part that I can buy, I would greatly appreciate it.

Sorry for my ignorance, I have a very limited knowledge about brakes and swapping. I am open to suggestions and tips.

Cheers!

You seem to have it all down pat, the conversion is straight through unbolt and rebolt + bleed your brakes & your all set!

You have already done the research and got the parts list in order - No modification required to handbrake aslong as you are using the 08+ STI rear rotors which have been cross drilled to 5x100 from DBA (OR any other brand that offers the Brembo size redrilled to suit WRX).
