    well, the brake booster and master is too only supply proper amount of fluid to the rear calipers and brake pedal hieght and brake pedal pressure of the acuras system....it won't effect the "no brakes" on the road. You said you bleed the calipers right?..are you sure there is absolutly no air in the system, because if theres any air....that is usually wut you get...air can be compressed and this is why it feels fine until you take it out on the road. Also, chk for leaks at the nipples and brakes hoses...have someone step on and hold the brakes while you inspect them for pressure leaks....or it could be the brake hose....it may be damaged...anyways...inspect the whole thing again...make sure there are no leaks....well i hope you the best and i hope i have help out alittle..and then tell me how it worked out after.

    sounds like you need to try bleeding again.
