I want to know if the new 11.5" rotors will fit the 2.5RS's current 2-pot calipers. If so, it's an easy upgrade for more braking area!

Yeah, that's about right.


Just replacing the rotors won't work, but you may be able to bolt up the whole brake assembly pretty easily.

I'll sell you mine when I get 4-pots.

I'm wondering if the wheels will interchange, although I don't see why they wouldnt.

The rotors and brakes look like a fit to the RS. The European WRX has 4 pots which are bolt-ons of the RS.

Would the 2 pots be much of an upgrade from the standard RS? Dunno.

All the breaks will change over, again guys you can expect mine to be available within a couple weeks after I get the car. I am upgrading many things right away.

Now, the engine in the new WRX - is that the same engine that is in the current WRX? If so, that means the engine will fit into my RS!!!

If not, break it to me gently. Please....
