Same here!

I'm gonna go snag a set of Legend calipers and brackets next time I'm at the pick N pull.

I found a set for $43 from the U Pick It in Kansas... and sold them for $170 on Honda-Tech, had I known you were looking I would've sold them to you... for $170. They are extremely hard to find. So good luck with that.

I've been waiting for the perfect time to do this. I have all my parts just no place to do the work. Its sad...

I'll be using a little more of an agressive pad. I"m going with Carbotech Bobcats for front/rear. I'm also using a 1" MC from a 94 Integra w/ABS as well as Russell SS lines.

My fronts are identical to yours. I'm doing the EP3 rear conversion as well, except I'm using stock G3 rear calipers on RSX brackets.

Right, I knew you had them for sale. I may just pick up single piston ones. The braking difference is not tremendous between the two.

So you are saying you can use the standard Legend Calipers and Prelude rotors to get the BIG brake upgrade?

Ok, so basically the only thing you are doing with the Legend Calipers is giving the rotor more room to fit since the Prelude rotors are larger. Cool.I can do that conversion easier (cheaper) and get it done faster. :-)

95-02 Accord V6/Wagon calipers are the same as ITR calipers. I was thinking of going this route.

I like pooer mans stuff that still looks good and operates good.
My rotors are burnt or warped, one and I will need to replace them soon anyways, I would rather give myself a little more stopping power.

I think it would make sense to make a sticky thread that provides links to the various threads about suspension swaps.

Having an index of the various swaps people have experimented with would be a useful tool for anyone looking for a cheaper/DIY route to suspension upgrades.

Just a thought, sorry if that seemed off-topic but I truly am impressed with people who try these things to see what kind of fabrication/effort is really involved to make it work. I think that your efforts have in turn inspired other people who didn't think they would be capable of executing something like this.

I would do this tomorrow if I had the necessary work space. Props for a sweet f**kin upgrade!!

Again, thanks for all the comments guys!

It's been a month now and everything is still working great. I haven't had a chance to get the car to the track yet to really hammer on them but i'm spending all extra cash on finishing up my turbo kit.

I promise i'll get to the track as soon as I can so I can give you an update on how they hold up/perform.

thanks

I didn't notice any difference in the pedal travel or effort.

Thanks, I've wanted to do this brake upgrade for a long time now but never did because there weren't any write-ups with pictures (i'm more of a visual learner)...so i figured I might as well be the one to do it.

I'm glad this will help other people jump in and do it, it's not as hard as it seems.
