Newbie Brakes... for 99 STi type R (import)

Just bought version 5 type R. Engine rebuilt happening over the next couple of weeks. Already thinking of upgrading brakes (AP racing???) but not sure what brand and what sizing to look for?

Re: Newbie Brakes... for 99 STi type R (import)

popular choice are the Ksport brakes,chioce of caliper sizes and disc sizes :- K-Sport Big Brake Kits for European and Japanese Vehicles

iirc if your going for the 10pots you will need a minimum of 18" wheels,otherwise the calipers will catch on the inner rim..
