Listed as evo4 but they are exactly the same as evo3 ones that i have seen. So hopefully they are the correct ones for the evo conversion?
Can't believe the price i have got them for Laughing

You jammy git .  
I've been considering doing this conversion so I can  fit 15's but as i already have brembo 4 pots it seems a bit daft.

If they from the evo 4 it will be the rs version & have 160mm bolt spacing (as hubs designed for brembo as well) on the caliper bracket that don't match up as we need 130mm hole spacing.
If this is the case not to worry as can just get some 130mm spaced brackets.
If you use the outlander brackets you can use 294 evo discs, done thread on that (search akebono)
If use galant or evo3 etc brackets you can use 280 clio or correct size 276 evo discs.

Edit: evo 5 would be rs for 2 pot, evo4 any but they still on the 160mm spacing hub as far as I remember.

The guy selling them said they were an upgrade for the 1. 2 and 3 on his listing. Thats why i bid. Thinking maybe they were a dirrect fit for the evo3.. we will see.

I have searched for 160mm to 130mm brackets but cant find any info on them.
If i do fit that bracket on the calipers to hubs. What size brake disk will i need?
Does anyone have any measurements of the brackets so i can get some made up?

I'm 99% sure the evo 4 hubs are setup with 160mm mount bolt pattern while 1 to 3 had the more common 130mm. you can buy pattern part brackets so if needed either get evo 3/galant if want 276mm brakes or the outlander bracket if want 294 brakes.

here's my akebono thread.
http://www.gtir-motorsport-club.com/t4937-akebono-2pot-floating-294mm-brake-upgrade

I can dig up part numbers for evo3/galant brackets if need I expect.

If calipers look clean I would keep them as getting hard pick up good ones, you should be able find 130mm spaced caliper brackets same as galant/evo3< if look around.
Could even be 130mm then you laughing.
294mm discs is almost as easy as only difference is need of bore ring adaptor & drilling discs to 4 stud pattern & buying 2 outlander caliper brackets.

really depends on wheel design & offset, caliper would be tight/foul on most 15" I expect
could mock up disk position/edge from bit of ply/timber using 294 disk details then wedge calliper to that & test with wheel.

caliper is same, you could just try sourcing the 130mm spaced 276mm disc bracket which same on evo 1,2,3 , galant , fto-gpx and other mitsi's with 276mm discs & akebono's
