    hey guys i have a quick question. i plan on doing the rear drum to disc conversion on my 89 hatch. i will be converting the drums to the rear discs off of a 90 CRX si. my question is, will i need the preportioning (sp) valve, master cylinder, and brake booster too. or will i just need the discs, calipers, and all the stuff for the e-brake ?

    Yea the rear disc models from that gen only ran a 7/8's (14/16's) MC, so the jump from the drum 13/16's isn't too big. I wouldn't mess with it since it is a real pain getting the fittings back in on the prop valve for almost no gain, especially if you're not upgrading the fronts to bigger ones.
