break caliper upgrade. For a Euro spec Prelude

I have a 92 classic edition (91 3rd gen with a sticker and Civic brakes) Euro spec b20a3 prelude SE. This car came with 240mm Civic front rotors. (Lame) My question to the Prelude gods is this. Can the calipers for the 262mm rotors that came on the American 91 prelude be mounted on my bastered Prelude? Same bolt holes and all?

I am growing tired of paying the shipping for heavy car parts across the Atlantic and having them not fit. And the Germans want to rape me. Honda parts are SO expensive over here. I got a quote for new front 240mm rotors and pads and they wanted 390.00 Euro (about $420.00 US) I only paid $100.00 for the car!

Secondly: Anyone have a 90-91 left rear tail light. They are Kind of a commodity.

Thank you for your help
Stretch

Ah crap! I was Hoping it was just the calipers. I will look into some SI knuckles.

I don't know where I got SE from. The car is an EX.
