    There may be, but you want the ones that will fit with the integra parts because thats what they are from.

    Drilled and slotted rotors are made for race apps, the slots/holes actually shave the pad to prevent glazing under extreme conditions, so in normal everyday driving situations your just wearing out pads faster. Like said before, a set of Brembo blanks and a good set of pads will be plenty.

    I love my brembo blanks. They've lasted two years with Hawk Pads, you don't need fancy race stuff unless you're strapping a rocket to the back of your car.

    That's the exact setup I have. Wasn't too expensive to pull together and the braking is amazing. Make sure you have a 40/40 proportioning valve and a larger master cylinder. For me, that made the pedal go from being soft with lots of travel to a brick wall that has awesome feel to it.

    Thats a good upgrade but the 90-93 Integra NON ABS booser and and master is a excellent upgrade aswell as the 4040 prop valve off the same car. I have that on my rex and it was night and day, thats with OEM pads and rotors too.
