Thank you.

Re: Brake Upgrade Options

^Your front rotors are 11.1" in diameter, so an 11.8" diameter rotor would not work with the stock bracket.

Re: Brake Upgrade Options

Not sure, you would have to dig around on various Honda/Acura sites to see what you can find out.

Accord_V6_400m is somewhat reliable
Re: Brake Upgrade Options

Working on making a Brembo BBK kit available to most of the Hondas out here using the Hyundai Genesis coupe front brembo calipers. Testing different rotors at the moment.

The calipers themselves are direct bolt ons unlike the Acura TL Brembos that have larger holes that require spindle swaps.

These Genesis Brembos fit perfectly to factory equipment and can even reuse stock brake hoses.

Should post updates within the week.

Nick!!

Dang, Brother, good to see you're still around.

Happy New Year, hope all is well.

And because I am lazy, how would this setup compare to the RL BBK?
