Ti to st brake swap ?

Hey there , I have a 2012 titanium with 17” wheels and would like to swap my front calipers and rotors with an st set. But finding the OEM part numbers has been an issue I keep getting the 2013’s showing up.

I was doing a little bit of spirited driving the other day and had to stop quick and when my brakes got hot, they felt like they were gone, had my foot dam near to the floor and the car in front of me probably shit a brick with how close I got.

Or is there a reasonably priced kit for the titanium that would increase stopping performance?

Why not go with the RS Brembos? $600 if you piece it together.

You could find someone with an ST that upgrade to Brembos. Unfortunately I don't have mine anymore.

I got no issues buying oem from ford if need be .. it’s just hard to find the right part numbers.

Also read that an escape rotor and caliper might fit as well.

Here is a list of parts not including pads and rotors. The bolts I listed you will need four of.

Also another note. It's looks like the calipers might be the same. Might be the caliper brackets are different allowing for larger rotors. Now the parts list is for a 13 which is what I have. I would look at the 15+ for the caliper brackets, rotors and dust shields. Those are the 13.1 rotors. Don't know why I didn't list those. I just woke up.
