Default Compatible Parts

I have a 00’ Outback Wagon. 3 yrs ago I had body completely restored (buddy is Classic Vehical Restorer) and coated with Linex. I replaced all shocks/ struts, suspension bushings, breaks/ caliper, Street Rays lift kit. Interior is clean and Engine replaced with 2.5 L with 86k. I would like to upgrade brake/ suspension/ exhaust systems for performance with mild engine tweak. Are there “any” parts from the RS/ WRX/ STi the are compatible transfers?

Front calipers are directly replaced with 06/07 4 pot WRX calipers. Rotors are exactly the same in front. Rear rotors are smaller on a WRX and calipers are the same (except for the 06/07). I haven't done the 2 pot rears so can't help with compatibility.

Engine wise, there's not much of anything you can do with a N/A that's not a boatload of money (aka, a full WRX engine swap would be the same money for way more gain).

Any Impreza/Crosstrek wheel set works. Crosstrek tire size is the same as your Outback for diameter.

I can't think of anything else off the top of my head. I've had an 02 and 04 Outback (same generation as yours) and swapped brake parts from the 02 when I had an 01 2.5RS to upgrade the GC8 for my track use.

UncleCecil, if you fill in your profile (blue stripe at top, userCP), then members will have a better picture without asking.

Jack, did you see a noticeable difference in the braking ability when you did the front swap? Debating whether to bother on my Outback.

Outback (Legacy based) or Outback sport (Impreza based)?
Makes a big difference.

Since asking about WRX, etc., guessing OBS (Outback sport).

I was asking the OP, not you.

The Legacy based platform had better brakes than the OBS.

Yes, my apologies, I should have quoted the OP. But, Outback can mean 2 different things.
Your brakes are likely similar to mine, unless tracking, the Outback should be fine beyond decent pads and a fluid change. If poor, either learn to manage heat, do regular maintenance, maybe SS lines for firmer feel.

Thank you. I wouldn’t think the CrossTreck wheels would be an optinas well.

Which calipers can I use in Rear without 06/07 as an option?
