    I have a 89 CRX Si, And I need Better Brakes. I have a LS swap with a 55 shot. But I want to upgrade the brakes. Now I know I can convert rear disk. But most of the stopping power is up front. So what would you recommend for front? Do slotted rotors help? Do the make a big brake kit CRX's? Any help is appreciated!

    I've got ebc green stuff with brembo slotted, crossdrilled, and ss brake lines. No big brake kit or anything just stock sizes. It went from ok I think I'll stop sometime - to - ok I'll go again as soon as my eyeballs pop back in. Great pads little dust.

    Look into the bigger brakes offered at FastBrakes. Even if you don't want to get the 4 pot calipers they offer 11" upgrades that use stock calipers for not a lot of money.

    ebcs were $50.00 per axle
    brembos were $90.00 per axle
    ss lines were $105.00 all 4

    Good deal I don't know but I bought it a little at a time so it didn't hurt as much. :blink:

    Yes, Brian (FastBrakes owner) is very reliable, very nice, and very easy to deal with. If you hang around honda-tech.com at all ask them about him, he does a lot of business at that site. I am running his 4 pot 11" front brake kit and I love it.

    Fastbrakes is excellent, they sell good stuff, are reliable, and know their sh*t.

    What I have noticed is people who say nitrous is bad, nitrous sucks, blah blah blah. But they don't have technical information to back it up...."its just cheap".....well hmm. If I spend less money than you, and am way faster, who's the smart one?
