difference between v6 sti four pot and brembos


Recommended Posts

You can put 330mm disks on the Subaru 4pot calipers and this works well, I have done it. I do not use a brake booster either.

Does anyone know the piston sizes on both calipers for comparison.

Need an adaptor+cert tho ae russ?

Pistons size shouldnt matter an ounce. I dont have sizes on file for brembo early pistons are 1 11/16, 2 1/4 and 2 3/16 not sure which one is 4 pot. More pressure per square inch with smaller pistons boon or koom can explain that one.

There a few incorrect statements here. Brembo callipers are lighter than 4 pots. But rotors are heavier. Also the brembos have bigger pistons which means more pressure not other way around. Opposite is true for the Master cylinder. Brembos are far better with heat. I used to get uneven pad deposit on my rotors with 4 pots when towing down Hills and even fade. So they can be of use on the street.

yep adapter needed not sure about cert. Would you also need to cert Brembo setup if you put it on a gc8?

That was also my understanding of the piston size too. Isn't pad deposit and brake fade down to the pad your using? Never had much issue with endless pads, definitely no brake fade when using on street or during races on track.

They the same size pistons as a evo brembo, i've used genuine brembo seal kits for evos on both front and back of subby brembos, sorry can't remember the size but they are the same(same seals and same dust seal) so that might help someone looking to reseal theres as they can be had for little money, they run a bigger pad so they require a bigger piston for even pressure.. cast iron vs alloy.. I would image if you weighed the caliper and disk of brembo and subaru 4 pot front brakes the difference in weight would be very minimal between the 2.
