the 05-07 2.3 mazda3 brakes are exactly the same as the svt.. exactly. i have svt calipers and mazda3 rotors.

the reason for the mazda3 swap was b/c i of the lug pattern, larger wheel bearings, and i had to change the knuckle any way to use svt calipers being that my car is a 03. so re-drilling was out of the question.

the madza 3 uses 10.5" (2.0 mazda3), 11.8" (2.3 mazda3), and 12.6" (mazda speed3) rotors. take your pick. i chose the 11.8 because they are same as svt and i had svt calipers and i couldnt afford the 12.6 mazda speed rotors/calipers.
