Mitsubishi Evo brembo's. has anyone tried this conversion?

Just an Idea, I come from the Evo world, and have access to these part from my evo. Now has anyone done this yet. Just trying to see how it worked out and what was.
Im guessing re do the rotors to the correct hub size and maybe a redrill of bolt pattern. But also could find rotors which have the same dimensions as the evo which are made for a E46 maybe. Just a thought.

Sure anything can be done, but it comes to a point where its going to cost more money designing, machining, and finding parts that you might as well buy a bbk made for the car. Theres a lot more than just getting the parts to fit. You may have a lot different brake bias, or not being strong enough (doubtful).

If you've got access to a bunch of measurement devices and a machine shop, go for it. Post results!

I doubt anyone here has looked into it.
I wouldn't be shocked if the spacing for the caliper mount points are the same as a standard brembo bbk caliper.
