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
True, however our cars are like 400lbs lighter than the STI : p
We have the same brakes as all 08+Wrx minus the front rotor size difference (assuming you have discs all around). The fronts on the Wrx/2.5i are 2pot and rears are single pot setup. 06/07 Wrx have the 4/2pot setup, thus the physical and visual difference.
