Default Brake size on BE LGT Sedan?

Just wondering what the stock brake size is on a BE LGT. I'm thinking of upgrading to either the STi v 6 fronts and H6 rears, or 05 LGT brakes all the way around. Any advice?

97legacygt - For your LGT, it'd be 277mm (10.9") front, the later models had 294mm (~11.5"). Both had the same calipers, but different caliper brackets.

You most likely have the 277mm fronts. You'd use USDM WRX sized front rotors w/ the STi V6 calipers (which are regular FHI 4pots). You should have the larger H6 rears on your LGT already (pending production date).

Going '05 LGT brakes all around will add quite a bit of unsprung weight. We will be releasing our 2-piece rotors for the '05 LGT to shave some of that off.

I think it depends on how much you want to spend. I wish the LGT Brake Kits were out when I was looking 6 months ago. If you are budget minded you can find some used WRX pieces and get the brackets.

I got powerslot rotors stock size and carbotech bobcats. It is certainly better than stock.

iON's advice with the FHI 4pots would be best in terms of maintaining stock bias(not worsening it.)

FYI your BE already has the "H6" rear brakes, they are the same.

If I'm looking to spend no more than one thousand-ish, my best bet would be to go with the front STi 4 pots, upgrade all the lines, and use slotted rotors and better pads all around? What are the "FHI" 4 pots? Thanks

what is your definition of STi 4 pots, are you talking Brembos? otherwise they are the same as the FHI 4 pots.

I'm referring to the Version 5/6 STi brakes (The ones that have "SUBARU" engraved on them.) Whare are FHI 4 pots? I'm unsure of what FHI means.

97legacygt- FHI = Fuji Heavy Industries = Parent company of Subaru.

The 4pots on the V5/V6 STi are labelled "Subaru"

For your budget, the following is our suggestion: (works out to be a little over a grand)

(1) FHI 4pots
(2) F&R SS lines
(3) iON CF/Kevlar Sport pads (F&R)
(4) iON 2-piece WRX sized rotors (F)
(5) iON 1-piece H6 OEM sized replacements. (R)
(6) AP Racing dot 5.1 fluid, or and good brake fluid
(7) Cryo on the rotors [highly suggested, works out to be cheaper down the road]

I have cryo'd Power Slot rotors from www.frozenrotors.com. I like the rotors, and I hope they last a looooooonnnnnnnggggggggg time. Seems pretty good with Carbotech Bobcats. I've only had this set up for 3 months.

What differences (if any) are there between the V 5/6 4 pots and the FHI 4 pots? Are they one in the same?

Sorry I havent been back. I usually call the red or grey cast-iron non-brembo 4-pots, the FHI 4-pots. Theyre the same, as others have answered and they use the WRX-sized 294mm rotors but output about the same brake torque as the 277mm/2pots you have stock.

IMO you could save the money on the slotted rotors and get some oem-style rotors cryoed if youd like.
