Who makes 4 piston calipers for crx's to fit stock rotor size 9.5" ?

So far, I'm running an upgraded MC 15/16 From a 1989 prelude Si,
Hawk HPS brake pads, Powerslot slotted rotors, Russell stainless steel lines.
I check spoon & brembo and they dont have applications for 91 crx's.

so far KVR are the only company that sell them...

I put on Hawk racing pads and they work real nice with the stock braking system. I don't know if the upgraded calipers will do much more for you or not. Upgraded pads and tires will do quite a lot.

Do the Hawk pads work ok on the street? Noise? Is there a type?

There's a couple different kinds of Hawk pads. I'm not sure of the names of all of them, but I'm using Hawk HPS (high performance street). There's no noise and the increase in stopping power was dramatic. They put out more dust than a standard pad though.

Hawk also sells HP+ pads, which are supposed to provide even greater friction at the expense of noise and dust. They're aimed more at autocross and track cars, but you could probably rock them on the street if all you want is really good brakes.

I have slotted rotors. Would the HPS wear out too fast? Do you get them online?

You can get the Hawk pads at Tirerack.com. My front two ended up being $80 or somewhere around that. I got the HP pads. They do grip quite a bit and resist fade better than the ceramic pads on my DX.

I don't know if slotted rotors are worth the money, especially if you are just driving around town. I use stock rotors, they seem to hold up just fine. A lot of the teams that race near stock Hondas stick with the stock brake system, they just upgrade the pads.

They're actually not as bad $$ as one would think. I mean... yea, they're more expensive, than replacing pads, and getting a drop-in rotor upgrade or something, but if you want 4-banger brakes, it'll be more $$ to do it... but this system is a LOT less than other big brake kits i've seen out there.
