calipers are from 93y honda legend 3.2 coupe, they are very similar to nsx calipers, but surface of pistons is bigger, so bigger power of breaking

Did you have to use shims/spacers to get the caliper to line up correctly with the rotors though/

He used old pads to make spacers as you can see on this pic



From what he says on PTP forum it went somewhere around $150-200

Fly, I used to run that set-up a good many years ago now. Moved on to NSX stuff as Greg mentioned.

That is actually wrong.
Yes they do have slightly bigger pistons but that does not give them greater braking forces .
They require more fluid movement hence actually feel worse at the pedal for no more braking force. (and yes I have tried them so I do know this for a fact)

BTW you do not need to use spacers behind the brake pads, they work perfectly well without them.
