So you'd need to change the backing plate, or if you got some 1st gen legacy turbo brakes you could use a 290x18mm rotor.

For the shortblock I had Ross Racing make some SVX pistons a couple years ago. They should be able to do another set pretty easily.

Also, I think you can use SVX rear axles to do a 5x114 hub swap into a wrx while keeping the r160.
So if the rear upright is the same then a clevis for a V5 strut should fit right?
