      Yes calipers are direct fit from 8 gen of accord. Also plug and play for Civic FN2 etc. Can source set for you if interested.

  3. BTW I'd advice AGAINST going for hard mounts @DeviateDefiant tried them in his and they led to lots of vibrations throughout the car.
  4. I'm liking this Project Log very much, some nice mods done and even nicer ones pending. :Grin:

    I'm also going to be doing a short ratio gearbox mod, I have everything for it, just need to actually find the time to do it !

      Thank You. There is loads of modification plans, but also I don't want throw money, when there is more important things. About engine mounts I think i will just use OEM and use glue to make them stiffer, also install a engine torque damper.
