In case anyone is interested I found out that 99-02 2.5RS harness to ECU connectors are the same as these following cars:

98-99 Mitsubishi 3000 GT turbo
00-05 Mitsubishi Eclipse (V6, MT)
03-05 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (JDM)
06-07 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (all models 2.0 & IX)

So instead of getting the Boomslang extension harness for $299. (PN BF13014)

You can opt for the AEM harness extension for half the price. (PN AEM 30-2990)

Thus my friends, making the WRX ECU swap a little easier off the car. I also happen to have an extension harness for a 02-03 bugeye so I plan on merging that way.

Just scored some working rear 2 pots from a 300zx for $99. Just shave off the Nissan (or keep it) for a low cost rear 2 pot conversion.

Aren't those slightly taller than the Subaru units so you end up with some pad not making contact with the rotor?

I believe it's the fronts that are different, but then again I could be wrong. I've done a comparison in the past before with Subaru rear two pots vs the Nissan ones and they were exactly the same (this was 6-7 years ago now so the information I remember is a little hazy).

Nissan are definitely different. They bolt on the same but the height is different. I haven't been able to find a compatible rotor yet.

From what I read the rotor sits 1-2mm away from the pads, can you confirm?
