Also are the AEM big brake kit worthwhile? How do the perform? When they go bad to you have to replace them, or buy a new kit? Also do they come with pads? Also what is the smallest wheel the brakes will claer - 16s or 17s?
I am not sure if the Legend calipers and AEM Big Brake kit will work because of the caliper clearance. AEM only made the caliper relocation mount for the stock 4th./5th. Gen. Honda Prelude stock caliper and not for the Legend caliper.
Performance? Hopefully for what I've spent alone on the AEM Big Brake Kit for both front and rear I'll get better then stock braking performance. I won't know until I have the kit installed on my 5th. Gen. Honda Prelude. Also I'm upgrading the pads to the AEM/Nissin pads, Goodridge SS brake lines, and most likely Valvoline DOT3/4 brake fluid.
As for the distance part, in the last Sport Compact Car magazine they set a 60-0 braking record with their project celica that was equipped with the AEM big brake kit with EBC green stuff pads i believe they were. The car was also epuiped with 17" Falken Azenis tires also. Regardless, the car had the big brake kit on and they praised the kit very much and were suprised at how well the car was stopping. It's not just a bling-bling upgrade. If you want better braking performance, i highly recommend getting this kit for it is a cheap way out and works wonderfully.
