the EK9's rear calipers are larger than the EK4.

EK9 - 9CLP14S over a 10.2" rotor

EK4 - 9CLP13S over a 9.4" rotor

I was just pointing out that I knew there were differences with the break set-ups in the cars, I didnt know if size was one.

Obv it is . . .

ek9 calipers are the same as dc2 itr
Dont think thay are mate!
As i bought a rear itr caliper for my 9 and when i came to fit it, the jaw's of the itr caliper were about 5mm to short! (would not fit over a new set if pad's)

It is possible to fit/swap 9clp14s on ek4? Are they bolt on? I already know that i will need to buy bigger pads and bigger rotors....
