Default [HOW-TO]Spoon Twin Block Caliper Install on 4x100 with 10" Stock Brakes

Brake install time! Iím going to make a write up how to do this installation because this is for one, a brake setup for the 5lug Type Rís going on a 4lug 10" Rotor Civic/Integra; two, there isnít any good write ups on how to do this for others to read.

First of all, you need the parts to do the job.
Parts:
1. Spoon Calipers
2. (4) 1mm washers
3. Type R Brake pads
4. Rotors, I used the 2007 Mini Cooper NON S version. You can also use redrilled 94-96 Prelude VTEC rotors.
5. Brake fluid
6. (Optional) 3mm rotor spacers, You need these when you are using the Prelude rotors


The first step you want to do after you take the wheel off is unbolt the brake line from the knuckle. There should be (2) 10mm bolts holding it on. This will free up the line so you have more room to work on.


Once the line is unbolted, take off the caliper with (2) 17mm bolts and slide off the rotor. Once those are off, you will need to grind off the ďearsĒ of the dust shield. The calipers are much wider and you need these removed to have clearance for the calipers.


Place the rotor on and secure it with lugnuts. Since I am using the 2007 Mini Cooper NON S rotors, I don't have to use the 3mm rotor spacers. But, if you decide to use the Prelude VTEC rotors, you will need to place the space on the hub, then place the rotor over it.


Grab you caliper bolts and the washers, you will need to put the washer between the knuckle and the caliper.


Bolt the caliper up and tighten to spec. once you have the caliper on, unbolt the brake pad stays. This consist of a (2) 10mm nuts and (2) long bolts with allen heads. Once loosened, slide the bolts out.




Before putting on the pad, break off the metal tabs.



When installing the pads, I would recommend shaving the pad compound material down 1mm. I didnít do this and my pads were rubbing against my rotors so bad, they were over heating my fluid. Iím not sure if this is the case with all pads, but just a precaution.
To install the pads, you just slide them in through the top of the caliper.


When you put everything back together, pleaseÖ Anti-Seize the bolts! This will make your next brake job even easier.


Once you bleed the brakes (back side to front side on multipiston calipers), you should be almost all done! Some people may have to bleed another time just in case. But thatís all to it really, make sure everything is bolted up tight to spec, put on your wheels, and go break in those pads and rotors!
