Crx ef8 brake upgrade advice

Postby Noahprinceluk » Fri Nov 25, 2016 6:10 am

hi all, i want to upgrade brakes because the car needs new discs/pads and i want more stopping power and better pedal feeling. First thing i think is stainless brake lines, new disc (i'll buy pagID coated) and rear standards pads, but for the front, my #1 option is the Wilwood DPHA bolt-on calipers, and the #2 is caliper rebuild with fedoro ds2500 pads. So you guys recommend me other upgrade? (Ef8 has integra da spindles with 262 fronts and 239 rears)

Really good tires is a good upgrade as well.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.

I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.

This setup works really well, and your 15" wheels still clear. No MC or prop valve changes needed. I ditched this setup for wilwoods all around, and the biggest difference I feel is a significantly lighter wallet. The prelude calipers are slightly better than the NSX calipers based on pot size. I used EBC rotors with 4x100 drilling. You can't go wrong with EBC greenstuff pads with that combo.
Keep it real. This is the only Honda forum worth my time. You make it happen.

I played around with the idea of getting Legend calipers, but there isn't any yards within 200 miles that has them. VW Corrado rotors work, but they need spacers to sit square. Mini Cooper (2007, I think) rotors are a perfect fit without any mods, but TSX (IIRC) pads are needed for proper wear.

Could you please provide further detailed information on the ITR/Prelude/EP3 upgrade? I've googled it, and keep returning mixed results. I have a 91 Si, been garaged for 5 years after a rescue, about to start getting her ready for the road again. Currently needs the entire brake system replaced, and I'm interested in the H22/MG 282; EP3/EP2 setup. The reat sounds pretty straight forward, the front I'd like more details on in possible, such as exactly which H22 prelude (Gen4?) and the "MG282" disks. Thanks on advance :D

I think it's possible to fit renault Brembo 4pot calipers ith MG 282 discs under 15" wheels. That's what i'll try to do in the near future.
