# 98-02 Accord Coupe V6
# 95-02 Accord Sedan V6
# 91-97 Accord Wgn
# 97-01 Prelude
# 92-96 Prelude VTEC

These front pads are all the same part.
So which brake pad would be the best to use for this upgrade?

Anyone else do this? How long did it take from start to finish and how much was spent on all the parts?

Alright, I finally got around to doing this and to be honest the amount of trouble I've had it with... just makes it not worth while.
I used prelude rotors on the front, legend pads, legend dual piston calipers russell brake lines. on the rear I used EP3 rotors, EP3 caliper (and pads) brackets, DC calipers and russell brake lines. Stock 15/16th MC/Booster and DOT4 Fluid. The calipers are mounted with the bleeder facing upward. I drove the car for a little bit after getting everything together, got on the high way and went about 2 miles. If I let off the gas the car would immediately start to slow down, so I got off on at an exit, pulled over and my front brakes are smoking something fierce. So, I let it cool so I can get it home. I get it home, pop the calipers loose and pull the pads to remove the shims. I removed the shims, put it back together. Did the same exact thing. So I track down a set of reman'd calipers for the front and and put em on... The car is doing the same bullshit it was yesterday, but not as bad. Now, yesterday when we put the stuff all together we adjusted the pedal because we felt it was too low. Should I adjust it back out, do you think maybe its dragging because of this? Any insight from the guys who know what they're talking about would be very helpful."

I'm having this same issue. More so on the left caliper. I've got the mini rotors and tsx pads setup. Initially I thought it was the new pads being a little new and snug but I did a few 60-20 brake stops to try to bed them in and they're smoking something fierce. I had a minor issue bleeding the FL caliper, air was coming out of the base of the bleeder and not out the tip, eventually after about 10 tries, it started properly bleeding. At cold start nothing rubs but when i press the brake there's a minor pause before the brake enforced, then a massive bite and the FL wheel locks and skids. Im going to disassemble and redo the slide pins adding more silicon grease and making sure everything sits flush. Any other thoughts? Im running the calipers with the bleeder facing down and using the 2x4 technique to bleed. Another worry was the brake line is pulled extremely taught when the setup is mounted, could that also be the issue or does that usually only happen when the wheels off and the hub settles a little?
