Default Bigger brake kit for not an insane amount of money?

Looking to upgrade my brakes, something that will help with a little more stoping power. I am looking to spend a reasonable amount of money but nothing to insane. Looking for a good front and rear brake system that i will notice some change from. Any help is definetly appreciated.
Thanks,
Moose

I understand you perfectly. I came from the world of Sentra SE-R's, where the big brake kit was $300 and consisted of factory pieces. I recently got a really good deal on a used set of Cobb/Stoptechs. That's the way to go if you can find it. It wasn't anywhere near $300, so don't get your hopes up.

On the other hand, there is the Perrin/Wilwood setup, which seems to be pretty nice. It still uses the stock rotors, which could be bigger IMHO.

Baer Racing had a stillborn kit that was under $800, but is rumored to be developing a bigger kit for the WRX. We'll have to see what comes out of that.

Newer grippier tires will improve your stopping power along with some new pads.

Then to improve feel change to SS lines and while your at it, put in some better fluid.


a simple pads, SS lines, and fluid upgrade shouldn't cost you more then $300.

Ditto - try what t-b said first, more are happy with these minor upgrades than they had expected when they did them.

If you are still not satisfied (you would have had to do these anyway) then think about front calipers - but you get what you pay for once you start going there.
