i don't think you can change the disc size alone, read the info in the link: Subaru Impreza 335mm Brake Upgrade Kit - Using Mintex 1144 or Ferodo DS2500 Pads

Re: Brakes/Discs

or just try V good pads, Dot 5.1 fluid and braided hoses first. Vented discs when you've got the funds ?

Re: Brakes/Discs

standard disks will be vented anyway.

the cost is in the brackets for mounting them. as said try brake lines and adot 5.1 then if your still no happy then i'd strat looking around at 6 pots/uprated 4 pots.

i went down the 6 pot route

Re: Brakes/Discs

the braided hose reduces the pipes flexing and reduces heat and wear etc alloeing a more powerful consistant braking
def give crn perfromance a shout the disc were only a 15 difference from std
185 all in front rear and pads mintex racing and there grooved
and there were zinc coated anti rust
