That WAS generous. That said, my girlfriend is about the only one I trust to drive my car without me in it to supervise, preferrably heavily armed.

When I swapped my rear brakes into a OBS all I did was remove my ABS sensor and plug in the ones that came on the OBS. The physical mounting is exactly the same, and works perfectly.

what about the programming in your stock ABS computer that tells the stock ABS modulator what to do and when to do it? that code is meant for the smaller stock brakes. it doesn't whig out or throw a code? it can't be the safest thing to use brakes from another car along with ABS computer programming for stock brakes, but i guess people that upgrade their brakes using aftermarket rotors and calipers are in the same boat. just a thought...

As long as the balance and proportioning are close, it's no big deal. You MIGHT see issues if you had 13" rotors in the back and 11" rotors in the front. Oh, wait, I actually DID have that for a while, and still didn't have any issues. I avoided emergencies.

Anyway, with the Brembos and the grippy-as-he77 pads I have, there almost isn't any need for ABS. I have an 04, though, so I have EBD anyway, making it even better.

Even if she does, man, your car can hold 19.5psi for like an hour before it has a problem. My turbo is blowing something like room temperature at that pressure.

I could trade having the fastest blue wagon down here for the fastest yellow sedan! Those wheels look sweet. Everything under the hood looks pretty familiar.

But NNOOOOOOOOOO, NOT the PRECIOUSSSSSSSS! He cants HAVE the PRESCIOUSSSSS.

I gotta get outta here...

Great Swap ! I'm doing a front Brembo Caliper Swap on my 2004 wrx wagon. I have 17" aftermarket rims but they don't clear the big Brembo calipers. I need to get new rims with a different offset. Do you know what the offset is on your rota rims ?

Thanks

-Ben

Dope wagon! i have an 04 wagon that i am swapping a vers9 jdm sti motor into and cant seem to get her to run smoothly after firing her up. I am done with the mechanical side of the swap as well as installed the avcs wiring kit but still not able to get the motor to run smooth as it should... When I fire it up it has a really hard idle and the check engine light continuously flashes off and on...any idea as to what could be causing this?
