LEGEND CALIPERS. anyone else do this conversion?

okay so i just purchased legend calipers w/ ss brake lines. bolted right up not a single problem there. calipers compressed fine after bench bleeding. now i do have less then half pad life in the rears but i feel like my brake pedal way lower then before.... compared to my stock vtec calipers. yes i bled the system a couple times... in the correct order. i have read some where that the rotors on prelude are 23mm and the legend is 28 mm. if thats true and with out having to "shim" my brake pads....is there a way i can adjust my brake pedal itself to give me better "throw". ideally getting the legend rotors i believe is the preferred choice but then i would have to redrill the rotor to fit my lug pattern. any info is appreciated.

There's a writeup in our DIY vault too.

It's on my to-do list, but it's below the 5-speed swap that will probably never happen.
