brake set up

Aight I need new rotors and pads.
I got a 98 civic wid b16. What kind of rotors/pads do you reccomend,, I kno theres millions of threads about this but I want one specific to my set up because some say oem rotors is all u need but i have an upgraded motor.

shud i get blanks or slotted? powerslot or another brand?
and
What kind of pads? EBC Greenstuff is wat I was thinking.

The setup I have always had great results with is using a cheap second line rotor with the EBC's.

The cheap rotors do get chewed up faster, but they are cheap enough you won't ever bother machining them, you'll just replace them. The EBC's greens when broken in last longer than most may think and perform great, but the dust sucks. If your goign to do the back, I would go secong line the entire way.

All together for the front your looking at $150ish and if your doing the rears add another $70ish.

just upgrade to gsr front disc... best investment i have made yet... really... it cost like 220 from teknotik and get them installed... i picked up a set with almost new calipers (still had some gold on them) and almost new pads... my car stops like 100x better... no word of a lie... u can feel the gggs breaking...


well, not really, but they are ****ing awesome and if u have a better motor (also heavier... which b16s are)... especially if you are going to drop more than that on pads and rotors... trust me... i will take u for a ride and hit the breaks hard and you'll see what i mean.

upgrade mc to 1'
upgrade front discs to gsr (don't get sir fronts, the pads are thinner so they wear faster, it's also more expensive. i know because i have sir fronts)
and get urself some hawk pads! if u track and don't care about noise get hp+. they're honestly freakin wicked. if you don't track get hawk hps or ebc greens.
as for discs, get oem blanks or brembo blanks.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


don't waste your money... seriously... you don't even need to upgrade the mc if you don't want... i used my stock mc and bb and my stock brake lines... as little as they may be (they actually aren;t that bad)... i paid like 220, 240 or something for the complete front assembly... WTF is that? thats nuts...and i can actually stop my car... plus, they look more aggressive having a bit bigger rotors too... just call teknotiks and ask them... i got like brand new calipers and pads almost...

um mc makes a big difference. especially if you're going from a 13/16 small dinky mc to a 1'. the pedal is much more shorter now and it requires less effort to stop the car.

i paid 400 bucks for 4 corners which came with front and rear brakes, lcas, struts, and springs AND mc and bb. i sold everything i didn't need so basically i paid 100 bucks for my brake swap. i happy with the performance on stock pads and rotors but i needed more. i switched to brembo slotted and hawk hp+ and the improvement in braking felt like switching from stock to 10 inch discs again. now i'm getting really used to my setup so i'm planning to go even bigger like type r or something. i love having good brakes, makes me feel much more safer too.

understandable... i agree on that one. I was just saying that it makes a huge diff alone with just the brake swap... switching the mc and bb again makes another diff... and of course, some more aggressive pads and rotors down the line... but definitely, these brakes add more confidence to everything you do.
