    the vtec lug pattern is different. you need to buy for the chassis. So non vtec

    :werd: for the chassis.

    Hawk HPS and bare blank rotors work mint. I use run of the mill blanks, not brembos or Honda. They work fine and have held up great. They're only $20 or so a piece.

    www.tirerack.com has decent prices. Buybrakes.com is also good, and you may be able to use a promo code. Try 08010 for the promo code. I bought from them several months ago and they gave me that code for future purchases, but it may be expired.

    right. when you do an h22 swap the only thing that changes is the things that attach to the engine. the axles are the same. so no worries on the brake system
