Good morning,

I know that the WRX/STI calipers are a straight bolt on conversion on the Gen 5 Outback, but does anyone know if this is the case with the Gen 6? Based on the part numbers, it looks like the 2020+ Outback and Legacy have a different brake than the previous generation.

Thanks in advance guys!

Wow, No responses. I just posted a Brmebo question.
There are probably no responses because people buy a WRX or BRZ if they want a sporty Subaru...

I understand that as I used to have a 2002 WRX. Now needing more room (road trips and camping with better fuel economy) I am hoping that someone will figure out how to do a Brembo calipers all the way around.

The 6th gen is pretty new and 99% of owners never modify their brakes to begin with and they're all still under warranty. Surely someone will be the first - maybe you? The Subaru Ascent brake rotors can be adapted to the Gen 5 and maybe also the Gen 6 Outback for increased stopping power, per @Brucey 's experience.

If someone would just say it fits I would do the front Caliper swap with my own money... Hoping a shop somewhere would have tested fitment with something from their parts bin... :(

Since we are on brakes, question have your calipers faded already? Mine have, the fronts are yellow and the rears look 10 years old.
