Next big upgrade: brakes

Now that my car is dropped on ksport coilovers I wanna do a big brake kit ### mine are gone and I don't wanna do oem brakes. So what company would be worth it? I've looked into ksport, wilwood, and brembo. I'm leaning towards wilwood but thought I'd see what you guys thought and get some info

One member on here had his wilwood calipers break right down the middle of the caliper. I'd recommend StopTech or Brembo for a quality caliper.

Chase had it happen to his old bugeye.

But...most people will tell you just to get upgraded pads, Stainless Steel lines, and upgraded brake fluid. (Can't remember what its called right off the top of my head.)

EDIT: ATE Super Blue brake fluid. Because it has a higher boiling point then OEM brake fluid.

What do you feel you need a big brake kit?

A big brake kit on a non-turbo impreza? Im running well over stock HP and have no need for a BBK. Like suggested above, save the money and get quality rotors, pads and brake fluid.

Does his have the 4-2 piston brakes?

Even if it does, I'd go with better pads. I agree with the above, BBK's are overkill in most instances.
