This might seem like a silly question but do the brake pads have to come from another vehicle that has Brembos? And where do you find replacement rotors for this swap in the United States? Or even axles? I hear that they need to be longer since the stance is wider. Would you be able to source any of these parts from say the S2000 or the latest SI?

Is the OEM A-Spec Brake upgrade the same or similar? Cause in the pictures I've seen it looks like they have brembos too

I read the link on RSXClub and noticed something they seem to have missed. But they are trying to use S2000 rotors and not ITR replacements

Look at this site
http://www.dba.com.au
Click the "International Online Catalogue"
-Honda
-Integra
-Type R DC5 (2001-on)

You can order rotors from them! But they wont ship stock replacement to N. America but any of the other ones for the DC5 R they will. I sent them an "inquiry" about it and asked why and what the possible shipping costs would be. Its not ideal since it would have to ship from Aus and not the States but it might be a place to start. That is if it works

What do we know about the rear rotors? Are they the same as the RSX stock?

Hi Michael

I am a US distributor and as you can see they forward me the web inquiries.

I'd have to special order from AU - and I'd want to insure stock before doing so but the DC5 rotors can be shipped here.

Shipments usually take 6-8 weeks depending on ship details but I've done it several times for cases like these.

Are you just looking for the front rotors that you listed above?​

I emailed him about front and rear rotors and pads. So I will let you know what I find out

This guy at KNS is fast...
I've been open for about 4 years and I've been in the brake business for about 8. I know - my website isn't great - but I am a good vendor on NASIOC and some Subaru boards as that is my primary market - but I get lots of inquiries such as these from DBA since I am pretty good at brakes (rather than just a large warehouse w/ part numbers).

As far as rotors - if DBA makes them then gettgin them here is not difficult - it justs takes a bit of time. If the sales are regular than we'd certainly stock some here. First thing to do would be to advertise the availability (after I confer w/ DBA) - then perhpas a group buy or something.

I'll have to get more info on the DC5 brake pads and rear rotors. It's very likely something easily available once we know what it is. It's a Brembo caliper up front - do you have one already? If the pads are in it - a sketch/trace would help. Also - the one thing EBC is good for is their international catalog.

Anything USDM is pretty easy - just a matter of me getting it if I don't stock it.

Thanks for the inquiry. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

And another email...
I need to know that anyway for online shoppers who don't contact me directly. (The difference between RSX/ITR rotors)

Neway - I'm not surprised a US Brembo person couldn't tell you - they are huge. Also - Brembo makes the caliper and sources the pad for the OE - but probably doesn't do the rotor. Also - that's OEM business not aftermarket - so info doesn't flow like that.

I was aware of the type R over there - i just wasn't sure if it was basically an RSX or whatever.

Looks like these are your brakes

https://passwordjdm.com/JDM-DC5-02-06-Integra-Type-R-Brembo-Brake-Conversion-P1816C100.aspx

That's a common Brembo caliper adapted to the Honda knuckle - just like Subaru/Nissan etc did it. It should be pretty easy to figure out which pad it is - there are only about 4 different ones. My bet is HB194 - or this pad.

The rear looks like standard Honda parts - 1 piston floating caliper and solid rotors. Might be the same as USDM RSX rears (like the newer TSX - it looks like Honda only puts the Brembo's on the front)

Maybe this rear pad

If that is the case - then i'd only need to do a few things.

Get DBA to bring some here
ID the pad in the Brembo's - a sketch and sometimes just dimensions is enough
ID the pads and rotors for the rear (RSX rears are a good place to start)​
