    im sure they both make a kit for your car. but getting slicks on there with those big ass brakes might be an issue. Personaly i would just stay with what you got.

    no big brake kits will fit under those
    fastbrakes has a kit that will fit under some 15s
    most need a 16 or larger


    if you want to keep your stock wheels (14s im guessing????) you will need to use the brakes from something like a CRX Si or a 2nd gen integra or something like that

    (dunno 4th gens too well)

    yeah they are 14" i just like them b/c not to many people have them in gumetal. i plan on getting some circ 8's soon enough. that brings another question up. what are your thoughts on 15" and 16" wheels? is there really that much of a diff?
