    A true BBK that fits under stock WRX 16" wheels.

    Technical Info:
    Calipers
    - AP Racing CP5100
    - 4 x 38.1mm pistons
    - Dust Seals
    - DOT compliant
    - 1.9kg/caliper
    - Compatible pads -> Ferodo DS2000,2500,3000; Pagid RS14B, RS42; PFC 83, 93

    Rotors
    - 12.2" (310mm) x 0.98" (25mm)
    - 2-piece system. CNC machined billet aluminum hat.
    - SS locking nuts
    - directionally vented
    - available in either x-drilled or slotted

    -> Calipers & hardware weighs in at a feathery 4.50lbs each side (this is the caliper, caliper mount and SS lines)
    -> Pads weigh in at 2.00lbs each side
    -> 12.2" 2-piece rotors weigh in at 11.75lbs each side

    Total weight / side = ~18.25lbs vs. Subaru OE 11.4" Rotor w/ FHI 4pots which is approxiately 32lbs

    Therefore a total weight savings of 13.75lbs!

    This Kit I got came with: (Front Only)
    (1) AP Racing 4pot calipers CP5100
    (2) SS Brakelines (F&R) & Hardware
    (3) 12.2", 2-piece solid rotors, w/ CNC Billet Aluminum Hat (anodized black) *note: x-drilling available, as well as slotting @ no additional charge*
    (4) Chromolly Brake Brackets (anodized black)
    (5) Ferrodo pads
    (6) AP Racing 5.1 brake fluid

    As with anything on your car you are tied to mother earth through 4 rubber contact patches that are in total about the size of a piece of letter sized paper.

    So anything bolted to the car no matter what it is will only matter through that patch.

    On RE92s which are under-rated relative to the stock brake capabilities there was little difference - reaching the 92s threshhold is very easy and additional brake does not good.

    On my 225/50YR-16 Kumho Ecsta MX, these brakes did perform brilliantly. However, I did not use the same tires on my stock brakes. I do know that this AP Racing set never faded under any stresses I put them under. So even if someone were to say that the stock brakes would brake on the MX tires just as well on the first brake as the AP brakes I am pretty confident that I can say the OEM would not brake as well as the AP setup here on the tenth brake application at full speed on a track.

    I know this doesn't give you the definitive answer - but the last comparison I can give is that my WRX braked as well with these brakes and the 225's as my STi does on the Brembos with the same DS2500 brake compound and the STi OEM 70's.

    I would try DBA.. call, and give them as detailed information about what you have as possible, and they should be able to get you fixed up.

    I would try DBA America first.. seems like any decent rotor in the right size would work, but since they're two piece you might get away with only having to replace part of it.

    Well crap.. I guess next I would call AP Racing and see what they have to say. Since they make the calipers, hopefully they will know someone that will make rotors that are compatible with them.
