MITSUBISHI CALIPER Vs SUBARU CALIPER

Happy New Year to All!!!!!!
Its long time I am searching for 2 pairs of Brembo calipers, to fit on my 2002 wrx and upgrade the system (stock brakes did'nt stop car very well). I have found on ebay, 4 calipers from brembo, but they are for the Mistubishi Lancer (any model), they will fit the wrx bugeye without making any modifications? (to me they look the same as subaru use).

would have thought the mounting points would differ alot from a different car in relation to where the disc sits in relation to hub carrier aswell as disc size as that would alter the distance the caliper sits away from its mounting point.

Im sure ya could get em to fit but they wont go straight on.

as above, although they are basically the same caliper there are a number of specific differences that make mounting them a pain.......................
