  • 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.

    As afformentioned by other members, pads and tires are your answer. I'm really a non believer in the AEM big brake kit. It just seems so much like a gimmicky modification that magazines uses to promote AEM. And are the AEM big brake kit rotors cross-drilled? I hate to bring everyone back to that argument, but cross-drilled rotors are baaaaad. My original comment wasn't in regards to DREW at all. I was commenting on something you said "I believe, and I think many would agree, that the Prelude's stock brakes are good as is." I agree with you however that better pads are a good solution. But your original comment mentioned "stock brakes" and said nothing about pads and that was what i was commenting on.

AEM big brake kit, NSX calipers..

Stock brakes are pretty good for day to day driving, but work them hard and they start fading like crazy. Especially if you have an automatic. Ask Raman (soniclude) after our mountain run. Imagine my surprise when he came up to me asking "hey what's that smoke coming out of the front of my car." His rotors were smoking and he was noticing ALOT of fade.
