Default wilwood 6 pots vs brembo 4 pots? and some other q's

hey guys, the wilwoods and brembos (same caliper as sti) are about the same price from gruppe s, im just wondering what is your advice on which one to get and why?

also, will the gruppe s rear brembos bolt straight on? and will these brembos fit/clear the jdm/ausdm 17 inch wrx (non sti) rim?

thanks

Not sure on the clearance of the Brembo's but I would go for the Stoptech brakes because I used to have those and they were amazing.

The wilwood 6 pot front and 4 pot rear is a over kill for street use. Another thing the wilwood piston require rebuilt more often then any other brand.

One is lug mount, the other radial mount.
One is booted the other is not.

None of which really amounts to enough to simply say one is 'better' than the other. Both have their pros and cons.

Overkill or not is in the eye of the buyer. What defines that? Both are multi piston calipers, even the rear Brembos. Does that make the STi brakes overkill too? 400hp is overkill for the street. It's all relative.

ok guys thanks for the tips, well i have subaru 4 pots up front abnd 2 pots on the rear, do you think it is worth upgrading, or should i just hook up some discs, pads, and lines? the thing is if i get these things separatly, the total cost will be not much less than the whole kit with calipers!
