EG Brake Upgrade

I've searching for this topic on forums for more than a month, so I think I did enough homework. Car is set up for circuit racing. I've been using the stock brakes with just high temp pads and high temp fluid, right now might be the time to move up, but only looking to upgrade the front, I'll stick with the rear drum for now.
======Option 1=====
- 94-95 Legend GS Dual Piston Calipers
- 92-95 Prelude VTEC Rotors Redrilled to 4x100
- 94-00 Integra Knuckles
or 94-95 Civic EX/ABS Knuckles
or 94-95 Civic Si/ABS Kuckles
- SS Brake Lines
- 1" MC and Booster

For those who have done this conversion or something similar(ITR)
- What is the best knucle that would not throw off my camber? Will camber kit solve the problem?
- I am still confusing about the brake pads, not sure what model ones to use? For ITR? Legend GS? or Are they the same?
- Which brake lines would I be using? I doubt that CX stock lines would fit
- What are usually included when I buy a 2nd hand knuckle?

Being a poor high school student, I can't afford big brake kits and I am not a fan of upsprung weight. Only concern is that Prelude rotors might be too heavy. Another option I am thinking is 94-00 Integra front brakes, will it be a lot cheaper to go with integra front brakes? I gonna change the rotor and pad, rebuild calipers no matter what I am getting unless it's brand new or close to, so I doubt I would save a lot by using integra brakes. Thanks and all comments welcomed.

You have done the legend conversion? I am pretty sure that all 3g integras have the same front/rear brakes, except for ITR, but I could be wrong like usual.

I don't really care how it looks, I would not worry it will cost too much.
Rebuild Legend Calipers 200
EX Knuckles 100
Rotors 80
Pads 100

Maybe another 100 for other modifications, I install em myself.
