Ya I got the 2pot rears from Banman before his car sold, so I couldn't tell you whats involved, but what I do know, is that it's the backing plate that is the only difference, but with that you have to remove your hub from the knuckle to install the new backing plate, at that point you can then swap between Brembo 2 pots and red/black jdm/06-07 2pots, with just a rotor change, the parking brake issue I believe is more to do with the hat size between brembo's and everything else, ala 190mm (brembo) and 170mm (everything else) So its a matter of finding the right rotors, stock 04 STI rotors wont work with P brake but will with bolt pattern, but I think DBA has rear rotors for $$$ that have the 5x100 we need, fit the brembo rear caliper at ~?12.3?" and fit the 170mm pbrake (I did a wee bit o reading on this).

but as for 2 pot reds, if you can try and get the whole hub/knuckle/spindle/backingplate and brakes assembly, it'll make it super easy to swap. Oh and my mech Hates the pbrake assembly
