is the 2 piston vs 1 piston that much better?
Honestly, they are about the same as far as stopping distances are concerned.
I read a thread on H-T that said the Legends just felt different under light braking pressure than the ITR/Accord V6 ones did. Felt smoother, like they were out of a luxury sedan (duh!).
If you do the math and calculate the area of the legend pistons added together it is less by a tiny bit than the ITR/Accord v6 calipers. Not significantly smaller, but smaller area none the less.
I got legend calipers because they sound cooler being 2 piston and all. The price was the same for either legend or accord V6 calipers.
And the whole more even pad wear thing, but that really didn't factor in much.
