    Hey guys, so I'll be gettin a turbo for the car after summer, but i want to upgrade my brakes before hand, so I wont have to deal with it afterwards. Ill be hoping for 300hp. ive got a 91 integra rs.

    So what kind of brake set up?
    i want something big. i was looking at the big brake kit for brembo. (wow expensive) so im thinking wilwood? but not sure if they will fit.

    anyone with any suggestions would be awesome. hoping to get them soon.

    get a set of front and rear calibers from a gsr, I don't know to much about the older integras but are your rear brakes drum or rotor?

    nah bro all teggys besides the integra type-r are 4x100 the same setup as your car. As for your brakes get yourself wilwood calipers, and ceramic bads new rotors from auto zone or one of those places. The pads and calipers will increase stopping power and the rotors are cheap so if/when they wear out they aren't $100 to replace. Also I would do stainless steal brake lines.

    yep. You will save yourself a ton of money in brakes going with blank discs. From what I have been told drilled and slotted rotors are kind of a gimmick, they are designed to stop heat from building up so the brakes still perform as they are supposed to but with ceramic pads heat isn't as much of a problem anymore. wait for Blanco to comment on this thread he will explain in better detail than I can. But either way the wilwood calipers, 4 wheel disc brakes, new pads, and lines will make your car stop on a dime.

    i've been hunting google for a definitive link i came across, but basicly, here's a short deally from wikipedia that says the same things i remember reading about in the article i'm looking for.

    make sure you read the begining carefully. the ventillation of heat they first talk about has to do with a 2 layer design, like honda's front rotors. then they start talking about cross-drilled.

    and it's not just ceramic pads, it's all types of modern pads. basicly any that dont use asbestos..

    you can buy it in blue OR amber, to better help you bleed the dirty junk out of your lines. good stuff.

    slotted/drilled are pointless
    this has been gone over many many times
    with newer pad materials slots are not needed... get good pads and they wont glaze
    cross drilling does virtually nothing for heat, all it is for is weight savings... not needed or worth it for hondas... the brakes are not big enough to need or benefit from it... and you are actually losing braking performance due to less friction surface


    save your money... get blanks and good pads... spend the rest on some braided lines and high temp fluid
