      Good day to you too. :)

      I haven't heard of anyone eve having used STI calipers on an early evo before, but I guess it can be done.

      Technically, any brake caliper can be made to fit (within reason) it's the braket that mounts the caliper that involves the most work, as it's generally custom.

      You are probably better off buying an existing kit that you know is going to fit first time buddy.

      Contact 'freaky parts' on this forum, as he is the brakes guru on here and should know which way you should go.

      :)

        Subaru do use the same brand/make of twin spots the Mitsu Evo 1-3's have, so may not be that different after all its always the brackets getting made up or sourcing is the hard part

            Were they the same brand/make of twin spots the Mitsu Evo 1-3's have? Didn't mention anything about WRX callipers!!

              If anyone has one lying around, I can pass it onto my engineer to see if a bracket is possible.

                found this in 2minutes of searching for what its worth




                Although I wouldn't ever do this kind of mod for brakes on a Mitsu

                  Is that the rear calipers on the front hubs? And would you be happy loading that many washers on the bolt? When my engineer makes the brackets, he makes them to the right thickness so the caliper sits flush with the lugs on the caliper. this will give it a lot more strength and less stress on the bolts.
                  Just out of interest who's is that car? as they've not fitted nylock nuts either... hope they've stuck some threadlock on at least :)

                    They are in west Midlands, was found on the web so I was just poking at it..:vampire: but
                    I couldn't agree more my old mentor would slice my fingers off and poke out my eye's if he even saw me working near that type of dodgy work.

                    I suppose its acceptable for some Subaru's owners though :snicker:
