    ok ive got a 92 civic lx sedan and i was wondering if there were any caliper upgrades i could make such as 2/4 piston calipers or something better that would fit the stock rims without alot of modification or bigger rims (which are 14 right now)

    IIRC all Integras had 10.3" brakes excluding the Type-R, which is the same size as 92-95 EX, Si ABS, and Del Sol VTEC. The Integra and EX calipers are slightly larger.

    so they are slightly larger but are they any better or about the same just larger to fit the larger rotor? like stated in the first post id like to convert to like a 2/4 piston caliper i just dont want to pay the $800+ price tag for the larger kits like brembo willwood etc etc even if its from a different company say nissan os something does anyone know if it would match up?

    Larger calipers usually have larger pistons.

    If you want 2-piston you could always do Acura Legend(GS Coupe I believe) or NSX 2-piston caliper conversion; and then there's 300ZX calipers too which are 4-piston. Though, these require modification to work(none are bolt-on) and I'm not sure if they would fit under 14" wheels.

    Swap the complete knuckle off of any 94-01 Integra or Civic(EX/Si) with 10.3" brakes.

    The smaller brakes should still work fine with a decent pad. If you drag race it's actually better to stick with the smaller rotors(less rotating mass).

    Just do a rear disc conversion. You will see a bid difference in braking.

    You can get someone to make you an adapter plate for just about anything.

    Here's proof:

    Saturn SC2, 1994, with Porsche Cayenne calipers. Funniest thing was that they didn't have much more contact area than the stock brakes. (we took them off.)


    Put some better pads in, and you won't need the multi-piston brakes.
