please someone correct me if im wrong. also, will the stock accord brake lines work?
yes stock accord brake line will work. im did the say way as you mentioned above. heres what im going to get

future: [front]powerslot rotors with hawk brake pads...prelude vtec

If u get Powerslots/Brembos in the stock 10.2" size w/quality pads is there really a marked difference in braking compared to the 11"s???? I just ask cause I remember my friends' Nissans w/stock size Brembos had CRAZY braking power just by switching rotors and pads.

thanks oneoff...quick question though for you...

ur rears are stockers right? just the accord ex rear discs/calipers?

my plans are unless i change my mind and go 5 lug is...

FRONT: CL Hubs, Prelude VTEC (92-96) Calipers/Brackets, EBC Green VTEC pads, and EBC rotors

REAR: Stock EX Conversion with EBC Pads and Rotors.

Then I should have good rotors meaning ROH, and the 1" bigger rotors up front. Think I will change to S/S lines to help with braking power.

I have also read this whole VTEC Brake master cylinder, but from what ive read it wont fit the LX correct? something about the hardlines I believe. It would be great if CPMike came in here and chimed in. I know he knows his stuff on this.

Again, OneOff, I appreciate all the help. I just put new rotors/pads on, but this will be next in line as soon as I get everything else outta the way (performance).

ok sry to bring back the dead here but i didnt wanna make another thread... i read through most of this thread so im just tring to upgrade my rotors and pads cuz i have a really bad brake fade and my steering wheel wobbles very bad when i apply the brakes...

So my question is this.. what would be the cheapest conversion to ROH while also getting a bigger disc while still bolting up perfectly to the stock knuckle.. Prelude? or acura CL?

I've read that drilled rotors tend to crack and blanks are better. well my 90 lx is a daily driver/commuter with a racing addiction (street and the occasional trip to the strip). my experience with blanks lead me to the drilled rotors. Living in New Mexico summer days get pretty hot and so does the asphalt. boiling brake fluid doesn't take much in 100 degree weather. the point of this is all that my blank rotors developed heat/stress fractures, had scorch marks, and tended to have alot of fade after a few fast red light stops. I'd post pics but i changed the pads after the old ones wore down part of the rotor and the new pads are slowly resurfacing the rotor. Yes i know cheap, slacker ass, and probably a poor idea but hey....it works for the mean tiime.

ok so i bought the big brake kit from TASauto. it came with CL hubs and bearings, 23T brackets, 15V (VTEC) calipers, 11.1'' cross drilled rotors, an extra set of brackets, HAWK pads. I also went ahead got a set of SS brake lines while i was at it. for the full set up it was $879 including shipping.

i can't say how it performs because i'm putting them on my 91 ex (in the garage on jackstands waiting for two more engine mounts and new hoses/fluids.) but just comparing the two setups is so drastic. the stock assembly looks so small and feeble next to the bigger rotor and caliper. i'll post pics after work.

and now i have a question....

For the swap (those who have done it that) does the backing plate behind the rotor need to be modified to fit the larger rotor?

i think the set up you have is just fine. i wouldve went with Power Slot rotors instead of cross drilled but with the price that you got everything for is worth it. and to answer your question above i say just take it off no need to keep it on there.

i do have stock size in the rear. They are Power Slot rotors, EBC greens and custom one-piece stainless braided brake line. If you decided to go with a VTEC brake master you will have to do what CP Mike did. you will have to reflare the front or rear line at the master. its 12mm instead of the commen 10mm.

would i need to take the abs ring and replace it with the accords?

Thanks!

Time for me to do my rotors. I'm gonna do the Acura hub swap, but I've also seen people mention other hubs here, which ones are the best? Also, which calipers are really good? I saw Legend, NSX, CRV, and Prelude calipers suggested but which are the best? I think I'm going to go with the Prelude calipers, but does it have to be from a 95 si or from any 92-96 Prelude? And do those calipers need rotors from the same car or are the 90-97 wagon rotors better or worse?

Also, if I upgrade calipers, nobody's mentioned it yet, but should the brake booster be upgraded? It's probably not necessary, but is it a good idea? Also, the brake lines, would it be a good idea to upgrade them to stainless steel? I'm sure the factory ones would work, but wouldn't upgrading to stainless be good if I use bigger calipers?

Edit: From what I can tell, the vtec and non-vtec preludes have different rotors and calipers, so would I just need the calipers and rotors for a vtec if I did the prelude calipers?

I know 93 prelude vtec calipers = 91-97 Accord wagon calipers. They also use the same pads. As far as ex models go, the sedans and wagons use the same MBC.

Does it require changing the master brake cylinder to put in new calipers?

Also, I read somewhere that because I have 4 wheel discs I have slightly different wheel bearings, is that true?
But parts needed for swap would be
91-97 accord wagon or 92-96 prelude vtec calipers pads and rotors
Acura CL hubs
Accord bearings
Any differences in what has to be done to the front or rear?

Okay, I've been trying to look on ebay for wheel hubs and wheel bearings and I'm completely confused. They label both of them as the exact same thing. Could somebody help me with this, I'm kinda lost on trying to figure out which is which. Also, can I keep my rims and tires with the swap? I heard the Acura hub uses 5 lug wheels instead of 4?

Legends > NSX > Prelude VTECs, if I recall correctly.

Okay. So if hypothetically there's an import junkyard near my house which happens to have all three the Legend is the one to go with. cool.

But the rotors are matched to the calipers or to the hubs? Hubs, right?

the best bet for every one is go with CL hub/bearing either use the whole knuckle assembly or swap hub/bearing onto the accord knuckle and use prelude vtec rotors and go with what ever caliper you want. LEGEND, NSX, PRELUDE VTEC, CRV and ITR.

ROTORS
97-01 PRELUDE
97-01 INTEGRA TYPE R
96-98 TL 3.2
ALL USE THE SAME ROTORS
this link will help you http://www.inlinefour.com/slotbrakrot.html


BRAKE PADS
97-99 CL 3.0 V6
97-01 INTEGRA TYPE R
91-05 NSX
96-98 RL
95-98 TL
98-02 ACCORD COUPE V6
95-02 ACCORD SEDAN V6
97-01 PRELUDE
92-96 PRELUDE VTEC

ALL OF THESE USE THE SAME PADS http://www.inlinefour.com/hawperbrakpa.html
