Default Big brake kits?

Has anyone researched larger brake kits for the Baja? The stock front rotor is 11.4" on the Turbo. I was wondering if there was a Brembo or Stoptech kit that would work.

Would a kit for a WRX/STI work? I'm thinking yes but want to make sure.

Cobb lists 328mm (12.9") front kit on their "hidden" Baja page:

thanks.

there are a few out there but it's BIG MONEY i'm not sure if i would make that move with needing brakes first..

Fully cast and CNC machined aluminum to ensure the highest quality; Rotora's new 4-piston caliper brake system enables better controlled braking and achieves better brake pedal feel and overall brake performance gain by increasing the clamp load/force to the optimum level of the caliper while still utilizing the stock master cylinder. The new front brake system includes a set of 1-piece cross-drilled and slotted vented "e-coated" black rotors (330mm or 295mm, depending on application), a set of 4-piston calipers (red or blue caliper of your choice), high carbon steel (S45C) mounting brackets, Rotora street performance pads, and stainless-steel braided front brake lines (DOT approved). All Rotora brake systems are direct bolt on replacement of the stock front brake system with minimal modifications required (ex: some applications requires the removal of the stock dust cover shield).

Subaru Impreza WRX, Forester XT, Baja Turbo, Legacy GT, 2002-2005

Front - RBK11.01 4-PISTON 330X24 1-PIECE (13'' rotor) - $1,495.00 - 17'' or 18'' wheels

ive looked at a lot of brake upgrades, but dont know if i can spend the 1500-3000 per set... im guessing that the legacy aftermarket brake kits will fit, correct me if im wrong... ion performance, im interested in what you have to say, i went to your website but no links would work so i couldnt check stuff out, and you didnt seem to have the baja on there anyway... what is the largest rotor you can fit under the stock 16's ? im guessing a 12 or 12.5? thanks for choosing to cater to us 'outcasts' that love their bajas, ion!

cliffhanger - We do also other brake upgrades that will fit under the factory 16" wheels; those would be more suitable for those not intending to track their car.

We offer 2-piece OEM sized rotors for the Baja in the front, as well as pads, SS lines etc.

We only recommend our BBK to those who'll be tracking the car. Our 310x25mm BBK is designed for those who want to use their factory wheels for racing or in the winter. We only use AP Racing calipers due to their internal dust seals & anti-rattle clips. They are completely DOT complaint; which unlike all of the other brands which aren't.
