    Is it possible to get a break conversion kit for a 93' Hachback VX? If so, does anyone know where to buy one?

    yep.. you can put 92-95 Si disc brakes or 94-01 Integra disc brakes... you wont be able to run VX wheels though.. you'd need a 15" wheel at least

    you'd need the rear trailing arm, e-brake cables.. basically the whole rear suspension except for struts/springs.. i think you need a 1" master cylinder also

    So I could just go and pick up the SI breaks at a auto parts store along with the cables and cylinder. Is this a common conversion for honda owners?

    does the EG come with everything the DC comes with? I take it that you have done this before and I'm very thankful for your help. I'm also sorry for not being as cultured in hondas as you are. So all I would need to do is buy this kit and replace all four breaks along with the e break?

    let me ask, I need to put at least 15" rims on the car for the conversion. but should I go with a 15" or a 16" rim. I've read a lot of stuff on the difference in power to the wheels and things like that. I was thinking about buying stock SI rims, would that be smart?

    you only need to run a 15" wheel if you upgrade the front brakes to integra brakes.. but 15" wheel is ideal.. SI wheels will be fine
