Just adding to this topic. I installed the 13.2" MK3 ST brakes that are found on the '14+ models on my '13 SE yesterday. The calipers and pads are the same as the earlier 12.8" MK3 ST brakes. The only differences are the caliper brackets and splash shields. The brakes clear my OE 17" wheels with room to spare and the brake hoses are the same as the OE brakes. I did bend the hose bracket on the strut toward the caliper a little to give the hose a little more slack.

Rotors: EJ7Z-1125-A
Left Caliper: BV6Z-2B121-A
Right Caliper: BV6Z-2B120-A
Caliper Bracket (L or R): EJ7Z-2B292-A
Pads: BV6Z-2001-C
Left Splash Shield: CV6Z-2K005-A
Right Splash Shield: CV6Z-2L004-A

The difference is night and day in comparison to my smoked OE brakes. The total cost of everything was $280 excluding the core charge and shipping. I ended up purchasing the calipers, rotors, brackets, and splash shields from Tasca Parts and the pads from Rock Auto. The pad set I purchased included the caliper springs so you'll need them as well if the pad set doesn't include them.

Just a heads up you are going to need to replace the spare tire as well. The 14 st came with a 17" spare to clear the caliper.

Thanks. I'll swap a rear tire to the front and put the spare on the rear if I lose a front tire.

That's another thread, it's possible to bolt them on as well.

More pieces involved than up front - can be done.

RS brakes are bolt on for the ST and run $550 from Ford if your part everything together.

Ford performance sell the kit for $1600. You can go to pretty much any dealer side and piece the parts together for a fraction of the price. A few have done so on the Focus ST forums.
