I'm just leery of eyeball guesses when someone is looking at junkyard parts with nothing for a reference....

Yeah, probably not SVT. There was an 05+ adjacent to a mk2 and both had large rotors that looked about the same but the mk2 calipers looked bigger and rounder....more robust. The 05 calipers were more square. I should have taken pics but unfortunately i didnt think of it. and i just blew my clutch a few hours ago so these brakes may have to wait... lol. Either way the 10.9's and calipers would still be a huge upgrade over those little dinky things... seriously. The rear rotors on most newer cars these days are bigger than my fronts lol.
