    I accidentally stumbled upon these on Ebay today. Has anyone had any experience with these? eBay Motors: Honda Civic SI Integra rear disc brake conversion (item 220194384071 end time Jan-31-08 08:36:25 PST)
    Thanks for input.

    Also, I have a B18B in my 95 EJ that I have not quite finished. I have been looking for a nice one piece header that won't kill my powerband but isn't $700+. Any recommendations would be great. I discovered the Flowtech (Holley) 80167FLT for about $225. This seems like a nice balance of quality and performance. I'd love to have a Lovefab but seriously, I only paid $100 for the car so...

    It would be much easier to swap over the control arms than do a custom brake conversion. Everything bolts up and works stock if you swap over the whole assembly.

    I agree for the most part, although, the only reason anyone swaps the whole arm is for the bracket and spindle. Otherwise the arm is identical.

    Ya, I think I might try them. I work at Autozone so I get 20% off everything. And even if I buy a full conversion I'm using Baer rotors so I'd have to buy those anyway. So:

    rotors: $120/pair
    calipers: $100
    brackets: $100

    I just hope there's no safety issue. The brackets don't look particularly thick...

    mine are aluminum and 1/4 inch. remember they are not supporting the hub/spindle really, only the caliper weight and drag.


    look - see the golden thing there? looks about the same :)
