Pads are just pary of the whole package.
Agreeed. From my experience - running no dust pads - the larger pads with worse compound have similar stopping capability to stock sized pads with better compounds.

Well HPS and EBC reds are supposed to be very similar. I put stainless lines in to so that may have helped the pedal feel.

I mainly did this for the bigger rotors to handle the heat from stopping from 130+ pulls.

And I needed a full brake change, as my fronts are warped and back rotors have grooves.

I was thinking EBC sport rotors with EBC green pads, but that's $450 for all 4.

Hmm, worth a thought of change man. Thanks.

What a great thread !! But seriously thought, gotta love how Honda owners always find great ways to mod\improve using other model, OEM, quality parts.

The SS lines should be here by the end of the week.

If Acura ever decides to go searching for its soul, it's out in my garage.

Does anyone know if there's any size difference between the legend & ITR calipers, for clearance issues with the rota slips?

Ok so I have a couple of questions.

1. Do you have to machine the V6 Accord caliper brackets to make them work, or are they direct bolt on?

2. With a V6 Accord caliper which rotor should be used: Prelude or Cooper (or are they the same minus redrilling the Prelude)?

Just curious because I purchased some V6 Accord calipers at $20 for the pair, so since my rotors are warped those are the only things I have left to buy...

On a side note, does anyone know what banjo fittings are used for the calipers and what size fitting is used to mount to the hard line. I am an aircraft mechanic, and our hydraulic shop will press on the fittings for me since I have about 40ft of SS braided line.

Thanks,
Joel

1. No. Not with cooper rotors.
2. Use cooper rotors.

So, if this works with the Type R calipers, and the Spoon calipers bolt right up to the Type R, will these rotors allow me to run the Spoon calipers on 4x100??

Are you 100% sure that this works with the Spoon calipers? If it does work and the calipers are actually centered on the rotor without alot of hassle, this could save me alot of time/money!

FastBrakes also sells a two piece rotor that is 4x100 and fits the spoon calipers.
