So I am a noob to the Subie group (a recent Honda convert, and kinda a Vintage Vette Guy). I am not yet familiar with how many different setups the Fozies come with. Does the FXT have the same brakes as the 2.5X? Do WRX's share same power brake boosters with other Subie models?

Ok. I have sorted through tons of threads on brake upgrades, with this and that in them, but no for sure answer, So...

I have a 2010 base 2.5X with with the steel wheels. What are my options for installing larger (possibly WRX) front rotors?

1. What will bolt up?
2. Do I need new brackets for the calipers?
3. What calipers (ie what car do I pull them from?) am I going to need to look for?
4. What size rotors and what Subie are native to?
5. Are they going to be compatible with current brake hose setup?
6. Are they going to work with the current brake booster/master cylinder?

Definitely want new calipers...

I understand getting better pads and rotors, but...

I definitely want larger calipers, it allows me so many more options, down the road. And I would rather not but better stuff for my existing brakes, because I know I will just end up upgrading the calipers later.
