    Is it true that these larger calipers bolt up to the 5G civic steering knuckle? :huh: Anyone here tried this or running this setup now?

    what type of master cylinder upgrade would you use with larger calipers? do accord or integra MC's bolt up?

    My current rotors are warped so I'm looking for a good upgrade without buying one of those expensive big brake kits.

    If your rotors are warped, how do you figure a caliper swap would solve the issue?

    Of course not,


    Sorry, forgot to mention I was looking for a rotor that would work with those accord calipers

    I curious about this to. I was considering using the accord waggon callipers with Prelude rotors redrilled for 4x100 bolt pattern so it will fit are hubs, but heres were im stumped the calipers cant just bolt up maybe but i dont think so do you make a bracket or something or what?

    I'm pretty sure you have to shave the caliper mounting surface a bit to get everything to line up- I don't know how much though... and if you're going to do it yourself, you better make sure you take off the exact same amount on each mount so your caliper isn't crooked...

    Well, that's the direction that I took, and I'm happy with the setup. :)

    BTW, you will need a ITR caliper bracket. The Accord wagon/Prelude VTEC/ITR/Legend/NSX calipers all bolt up. The caveat being that you need to machine down the caliper to sit slightly closer to the bracket, by 2-3mm. You can get Prelude VTEC or ITR 11" rotors and redrill them to 4x100. Or if you are using Legend/NSX calipers, get the Legend GS rotor, as it is a bit thicker(more thermal mass is always better) and redrill that. All of these calipers use the same size pad FWIW.
