What version you got? I've been told you cant replace single pot calipers with 2 pots due to difference in hub size between the v3 and v4

That info is correct if you have a MY97 STi or STi RA with the large R180 diff / hubs and single pot sliding caliper set-up.....
If you have a more regular WRX or UK Turbo then with a bracket change and suitable later 290mm discs then you can add 2pots
Think @Sir MixALot might have had some brakes??

Thanks @asperformance I’ve been down this route before... I’ve found a set of rear 2 pots and adapters, but I’ll need to order the discs and pads from you, I’ll give you a call tomorrow... The GD WRX discs fit perfectly - i.e. 290mm disc diameter, 170mm inner diameter and PCD100.

Hope its not a v3 type r or ra

It must be a UK car is it ? If so the brackets will work the best with 2 pots and 170mm handbrake. As you may know the v3 type r or ra with 190mm handbrake and solid rear disc are a pain in the arse. Easier to swap hubs.
