What more can I ask for???

Do you have this upgrade kit? Does it work with stock wheels? If it is true that wagons have bigger brakes from the factory will the just swap over? Last question, Will the nissin calipers swap right over to a car that has the akebono(sp?) calipers?

*Buyer Beware*
I bought my Brembo Blanks from autopartswarehouse.com and its been around 4 months and my rotors have developed small cracks on the rotor surface; where the pads touch the rotors...One theory on what is going on, is that shitty metal was used to create these brakes, and now its destroying the rotors. Its not a large problem now but in about 1-3 months depending on how i drive, im buying new brakes. Im steering away from brembo and am trying to figure out what to try next....

Are you sure it wasn't a rebranded brand claiming to be Brembo?

Okay to add to this thread, here is an easy upgrade:

91-93 Wagon front rotors
91-93 Front brake calipers w/ brackets (These are the same as Vigor)
91-93 Brake pads

That's it. Simple and very effective.

For wagon owners:

EBC or Brembo front rotors
Green stuff pads

With either setup, be prepared to kiss the windshield!!!!

u might of picked up some fake Brembo's...get a hold of Brembo and tell them about ur problem....original Brembo rotors are very hardy and go through a very thorough heat treatment process to reduce internal stresses and increase longevity.

FYI...according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, more than 50% of all auto parts in North America are fake....even reputable retailers have been scammed into distributing such crap.

Show us the box it came in along with any marking or indication on the rotors. That may save you the hassel of shipping.

I have talked to Brembo by phone and keep in mind Brembo does not make any slotted and drilled rotors. And does anyone know what the actual box design looks like? I have seen 2 used by Brembo and 2 others on other sites(eBay).

I hope some one reads this soon. I have the acura legend brake calipers with the 23T bracket. I took the brake pads back thinking I was going to get new ones anyways. Well I don't know what year it came from and don't know which kind of pad I should get. Do they make the ebc green pads for this caliper? Please help I was hoping to install the calipers this weekend. Oh one more thing do I need to get bigger rotors to fit those calipers on there or can I just bolt them up? Thanks

just to clarify, all 4 of those parts: rotor, caliper, bracket, and brake pads come from the wagon, right?

and no other parts are required?
the type of brake fluid remains the same?

That's what the box looks like, its red and has Brembo insignia all over it


And this is what you should also find inside the box accompanied with the rotor, its kinda like a proof of authenticity, Oh these are VIGOR 11.1 inch rotors btw, idk if they are the same at Wagon rotors in disc width, but in diameter and hub-over-rotor yes

Yeah, you'll be fine. You might want to consider finding a 15" spare tire too or if your front tire ever goes flat you'll have to put a spare on the rear and move that tire to the front.

That's tough, since the rear disks on the legends/vigors used drum-in-hat emergency brakes. You'd have to retrofit that on too.


Blk EX Coupe probably has a lot more relevant information, but I had a heck of a hard time fitting 11.1" rotors in a 15" rim. Sorta depends on the rim too, I guess.

So that picture Losi posted of the Vigor brake, im confused, cuz it shows the cuts for the hub, but no bolt holes.

For the vigor brakes, are they still HOR and have to be pressed? Or do I have to do the CL hub conversion?

I want to do a ROH conversion, but still upgrade the discs and caliper if i can. Right now I'm an LX with the rear disc conversion. I am ok with the rears staying stock like they are, but i want slightly bigger calipers and rotors like the vigor or wagon, just minus the HOR design.

What options do i have?

read through a couple threads after a i did some hardcore searching lol here is what i came up with...

CL hubs
Prelude VTEC caliper and bracket with corresponding rotor and pad

the way i read it is that those rotors are bigger at 11.1" compared to our 10.2ish, the caliper is bigger, the bracket will bolt up fine, and also i get rid if HOR and now am ROH.

please someone correct me if im wrong. also, will the stock accord brake lines work?
