Icon5 Acura Legend Caliper Upgrade

Hey guys, i'm going with the Acura Legend Caliper Upgrade on my car because i'm a broke ass and can't spend $1800.00 on a Upgrade kit. Got a few questions though. Do I need to buy Legend Caliper Brackets or can i use the stock bracket? Will these calipers fit with the stock rims? And do I need to do anything different with my Master Cylinder? The input would be greatly appreciated!!!!...Oh and for you guys that have this done, is this upgrade worth it?

The problem w/ the legend swap. (Copy and paste from my previous post.)

ok here's some thoughts. i did some research and found that on legends the caliper is located on the upper rear portion of the rotor. whereas the prelude rotors are located at the upper front (if that makes any sence). so what that means is that the legend calipers would be upside down on the lude (bleeder valve in the wrong place) to resolve this you switch sides. however on the legend brakes one piston is slightly larger than the other, usually this larger piston is on the trailing edge on the rotor. but when converted over to the lude, the larger piston will be on the leading edge, this will cause uneven pad wear and sometime brake chatter.
