I am actually in the process of redoing my entire rear brake system and you can combine an ITR rear caliper with an 02-03EP3 rear brake rotor and it'll work when all my brake stuff for my abs delete comes in i will post pics of everything.

Part Number: 42700-ST7-A61-Acura Drawing Ref. no.: 6 Description: DISK, ALUMINUM WHEEL (15X6JJ) (KAISER SILVER ME.) (ENKEI)
Quantity Required for Component: 4 Note: Please select your quantity carefully.
List Price: $449.97
Our Price
$321.28

This is the wheel description for the USDM ITR
you can see above it says (15X6JJ) all of the 15 inch Honda wheels are 15X6 so my assumption
would be they do fit but you never know! LT grab an
LS meshie or a blade and slap that bitch to see if it
fits. I love big brake set ups! I hope this works!

Quantity for Cart: Total to Cart: $321.28

What is the "feel" of this brake upgrade? I'm assuming it has a lot of bite without the "big sedan feel" that's usually associated with NSX/Legend brakes?

Basically. Its just more responsive. When I have a car full of people it still feels great.

Rotors: Use early EP3 SI 4x100 rear rotors

Unbolt and swap your ebrake arm from your existing calipers. RSX/EP3 calipers get sides swapped to bolt on so they must be bled upside down. ITR have the bleeders in the correct position but they are unique calipers. No other honda uses them so the cost an arm and a leg.

It's all bolt on, no modification needed other than moving the ebrake arms from your existing calipers.


This is all confirmed, not speculation. I'm running this exact setup now (but with RSX rotors since I'm 5-lug). It all applies to the 4 lug setup though.

I was just bitching about brake fade the other day, and started pricing out "big brake" upgrades.

In short... I love this thread so much right now. Thank you!

^^ are you going brake fade on the street?

I hate new people, just a FYI

Saying gun kill people is like saying the keyboard misspelled the work

I don't care what you do at home, keep it to yourself.

No sir... SCCA Solo II

Although I have had a few hairy moments while daily driving here in the #3 worst city to drive in. I hate having unpredictable brakes when I need them the most.

Edit* Sorry... #7 according to CNBC lol

Different pad brand/material will change the feel and modulation more than a caliper change.

Depends on the caliper change. ITR (accord) calipers have the same piston size as stock so you're right on this setup.

Yeah im not saying that changing the caliper wont change the feel, but the pad has alot to do with the feel as well. Just thought id add to that before other members start expressing their opinions on this setup. Someone might feel this setup sucks, but might be running cheap, quiet no dust pads. Pads are just pary of the whole package.
