nsx Caliper upgrade

Hey guys, it recently came to my attention that my front brake system is pretty beat up, decided to take this opportunity to upgrade, just want to make sure i got everything ima need Ive decided to go with the nsx calipers, and pretty sure I need the mounting bracket. Rotors off a 95 legend, and nsx mounting bolts. Is there anything im missing, and this is a direct bolt on with the parts listed correct? Any advice, help, or tips appreciated.

Re: nsx Caliper upgrade

Need the whole nsx hubs. Front and rears. It costs loot now, but you can go to any mechanic shop with little confusion. Get steel lines too while your there. You really don't want to do this part search too often, lol.

Re: nsx Caliper upgrade

Unless you have vtec calipers nsx should bolt right up an of course you need bigger rotors up front

Re: nsx Caliper upgrade

continued doing some more research and this keeps getting more involved lol. came across this here, nsx calipers? since the cost of going with this option seems to be adding up, i guess im better off going with the vtec brakes for my 92 si. All i need for this one is the vtec calipers and brackets, pads, and 4th gen vtec rotors? and I can get this at autozone or whatever right?

Really? If thats true, great! I overkill everything, just to be sure. But then you have the 5-lug conversion so you know.

Re: nsx Caliper upgrade

Take a look at this...
Looking for a DD brake setup...
and
rotors?
Found in the 4th gen resource guide.
Legend = NSX brakes
The NSX are made of aluminium were as the legends are steel. That is the only difference.
