SVT Big Brakes - 2 piston caliper

I was reading online and looking at pictures of a svt focus with the vortech unit and bigger brake rotors (bigger then our 300mm brakes).
It also was equipped with a 2-piston caliper.

Those things were both manufactured by Baer Brakes, but Im wondering if that was custom, or if Baer has a product like that out. Has anyone heard anything about that? They said on the street/track the brakes were incredible! The stock SVT brakes are mediocre, and im just starting to get a brake sqeak from my passenger side rear brakes. I'd love to upgrade my system, and I don't think just throwing slotted rotors on will increase my brake performance(I've heard the slotted rotors make alot more noise, or at least the aftermarket pieces that you can find on ebay).

Anyone have any word on SVT brake upgrades? EBC, as of a month ago, still only had brake pads for the front of the svt focus, not the rear yet.

Any word people?

Their brake setups are pretty popular through the DSM community. Expensive, but awesome.

Baer has a track claw brake kit for the SVT Focus.
It's decent enough. Not worth it in my opinion, but probably one of the better looking kits out there. If you get the kit for the front and the rear, then you'll need to do some custom mods to your master brake cylinder, because our stock one will not be able to close both sets of the larger calipers.. thus your braking goes to crap.

I would do as suggested above and go for the Wilwood kit from TCE. Their rear upgrades the rotor size, but keeps the caliper, so no need for a cylinder upgrade, but you get cooling the benefit of the bigger rotor. And the front kit can be either the 13" or the 12.2" (depending on your wheel size). Plus you have alot more options with the TCE kit.

The last option is the brembo kit which is about 2500.00. Of course it's a nice 2 piece design with a huge caliper. Problem is I hear it requires some wheel spacers for caliper clearance.
