As for the 06/07 4/2 pots, the fronts will bolt up if you have the wrx brake caliper brackets and I don't remember if the front Wrx rotors will work either. The rear calipers will require a bracket from knsbrakes/kartboy for sure and again I'm unsure about the rotors (this is if you already have disc brakes in the rear). Theirs a few threads on here ill link to when I get a chance.
I understand the performance aspect as well. I just didn't think it would be worth mentioning. Brembos are best for heat displacement and continuous used such as track days.

For our cars though, without the HP, its pointless. Given the minimal weight difference between the wrx and sti they show similar 60-0 stopping in a straight line. That's all I care about.

That said, if I had brembos I would put them on a Toyota Prius haha.

As for the 4/2 pots, I didn't know you needed a bracket for the fronts, I was under the impression that 08 wrx 4 pots would bolt up. Just figured we had a beefier setup than the 06/07's
