2005 Rear Disc Brake Conversion w/ 15" Wheels

As far as I can tell the SVT brake conversion won't work on a 2005, I could be wrong. I have a friend who did this conversion on his MK1 ZX3 and it just fits 15" wheels, I believe he uses Method wheels.

I have looked in to other conversions but it looks like I would need to upsize my wheels from 15" which isn't really an option for me because of gravel tire size availability. So for now it looks like I'm stuck with the rear drums.

Any ideas on what I should look in to? Or has anyone fit the SVT brakes to a 2005?

Rear disc brakes either SVT or the standard (slightly smaller) "AdvanceTrak" rear disc brakes will work with 15" wheels.

The brakes that won't work with most 15" wheels are the front SVT brakes.

Thanks good to know. If I go with salvage Disc conversion not to steal the front brakes unless I plan to change tires.
