    As I promised elsewhere, I have a silly question.

    What are the largest calipers and rotors (ie: from which Honda model) that will fit on the hubs of my '87 CRX Si?

    For my particular application, the factory brakes are far too small and I was wondering what others may have done in the same situation.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Im pretty sure some of the EF brake stuff will work too, for the front anyway. But id just go with the integra stuff, and for the back you can convert to the integra disk brakes by grabbing the whole thing off the rear end of an 86-89 integra.

    Thanks a lot for the help, guys...I think I'm ready to try out a switch.

    That redpepperracing forum was, as you said, TurboMirage, for all my needs. It's a really, really simple swap.

    Now all I need is time to find some parts...
