Well, I'm getting ready to start my K24-RX build and as much as I wanna go fast I would like to stop fast. And 20 year old brakes just aren't gonna do the trick!

My question is what options do I have? From top of the line to Low budget big brake set ups.

Whats out there, and what are you guys using?

Search button can be your best friend. Mine is simple and should be effective. Will know when finished. But just by the feel of the pedal it feels good.

91 SI front brakes with slotted rotors

93 DA Rear disc brakes

Slotted Brembo rotors in the front and rear

DA Brake master cylinder

Custom mix of hardline-stainless braided lines


My brake pedal is firm as hell and only moves like an inch. Almost feels like if I wiggle my toes the car will slow down. LOL

Running DA brakes on an EF, does it require changing the whole spindle over?

I know you have to do that when putting 99 Si brakes on an EG

Thinking about going ahead with Wilwood Front brake conversion, an DA integra rear discs.

Wilwoods front brake conversion for a CRX is about $650.00. By the time you buy DA front knuckles and some nice brake pads to match youre over half of that.
