Default brake kits for civics with swaps

I need some input on brake kits for civic with swaps. Just tell me what you recommend and what you feel about them. I need to brake faster and harder. I was thinking steel brake lines, rotor upgrade and 4 pot caliper system by fast brake????

What the hell is a 4-pot caliper system?

Why not just upgrade to a 1991 Honda Civic EX Sedan Master Cylinder and some better pads?

You shouldn't be going that fast anyways...

I like to drive with spirit. I have already warped my right caliper system, went metal to metal with more than enough padding. I drive with spirit with my other buddies. We do alot of intense "raping" of the car. Now please inform and not criticize.

We DID inform you. Honda drivers much more skilled than you stick to upgraded OEM brakes. You don't need much better.

i have heard good things about fastbrakes, also look to stoptech and stianless steel brake systems as i know people that have been very ahppy with those as well.
going overkill on brake systems is never a bad idea, whether you drive to need it or not, its better to have better ability to stop no matter how you drive. currenty i have mildly warped rotors with the start of cracking occurring so i am looking forward to a nice upgrade since oem rotrs and aem pads are not cutting it anymore and i consider myself an average driver when it comes ot speed.

on my 92 hatch I have an ITR 5 lug swap with of course itr brakes....Night and day difference in braking there...at least after the swap was done with the itr master cylinder and booster swap too....Oh and I had to go to a 95 civic si non abs proportioning valve as well...

Oh and of course stock stuff is fine to use but nothing is wrong with upgrading to better brakes....better than nos or other upgrades like that IMO. Just don't be out there driving like a nut and hurt someone else on the road. Drive crazy by yourself out there but chill when innocent people are around.,,
