Default GSR Calipers

I've already done a search and found what was required to mount GSR calipers on my non-abs eg cx. What I want to know now is if it's worth it or not. What other braking upgrades should I be looking at instead? Post some opinions, I'm thinking of picking up some Monday.

its quite a bit of a braking difference over the small hatch brakes, apparently.
Another option is a larger booster/mc combo to stiffen up the pedal feel.

But your braking will still be ****.


I would try to find the whole knuckle, it will save you a lot of trouble,
but if you think you can do it and want to save the money, oem bigger
brakes cant hurt.

You could always just get new rotors and a nice set of pads and some SS brakelines and a fancy brake pedal cover!

This is going to be done anyway, hoping to pick up either teg or Si trailing arms while I'm at the junkyard.

Yea, I'm trying to score a set of knuckles. I heard you can use VW Corrado rotors with the teg caliper set up. They're supposed to be something like 11", anyone do this?

yeah when you upgrade your cx brakes to 10.2" unit the car brakes like it's crazy. Car just stops, no brake fade nothing. Amazing improvment.

why would u want to put gsr calipers on ur civic? are u planning on getting gsr rotors also cause it would probably be easier to get the whole steering spindle from a salvage yard.

integra calipers are larger than civic ones...all of them. The ex/si have the same size rotor as integras
(i never understood why people say "gsr calipers" since theyre all identical -ls/gs/gsr)
