Tried looking at the section, but no luck

Are there any BIGGER calipers/rotors that would bolt on to Mazda3 from other Mazda models Speed3/6 or CX7/9?

The speed 3 caliper and rotor should fit with the right caliper bracket.

Really. That would be a nice stealthy upgreade.

Yeah, but I'd imagine I'd be hard to find, seeing as though most Speed3 owners haven't fully upgraded their brakes to a BBK setup.

Sounds like no one tried diff setups yet. EPC shows that Speed3 and 3 knuckles are the same, so should be a direct bolt on.

I'll have to compare with buddies Speed3, see how big those calipers are, any idea if they are single or twin piston?

We are actually working on a proper upgrade for all mazda3 / speed3...

Probably using the speed3 rotor with wilwood 4 piston will be the most cost effective way to go, but you will need some deep dish rimzzz

I'd be interested in those calipers for my Speed3.

Or a non-$1000 big brake kit *cough hint cough*
