    It sticks out 2.25 inches from rotor to face of caliper. Oh yeah my bad forgot about that here it is

    So basically you bolt on the bracket to the two holes on the knuckle. That will hold the bracket in place. The two holes on the side is where you bolt on the caliper

    Can you test fit them on your stock rotors?

    I have about an inch and a half from the face of my rotor to my rim so I would need like 20mm spacer.

    Hmm maybe since you said the RL calipers looked smaller maybe you could do that instead.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Updated with a few new pics of how the car currently sits. Installed the new coilovers and it rides so much better than my blown ones lol Fronts were a breeze to install but the rears were a PITA..... Set them to approximately 25.25 inches F and 25.75 inches R fender to ground. It's like 2 finger gap front and back. A more practical setting than I usually do hahaha tired of all the scraping

    Couple new stuff coming up. Bought a AEM V2 CAI and oem modified short shifter from a member (lithiumus). I already have a CAI but for the price I had to grab the V2... Does anyone know if I could reuse the air intake when I do my H swap? I would assume it will still fit. Also ordered some sport pedals :)

    Thanks haha it was super bright outside so the pictures kind of suck. I'll get better ones eventually haha and yeah man I think that's a good idea too. You can worry about the brakes later. Maybe you could do the Acura Legend BBK down the road. Should be way easier to fit but they dont look as cool

    Yeah man after reading your post on scraping your H swap I was like bruh..... I might do the same... but I live in California and we have like the strictest emission laws on the planet so that's a no go. I can find someone to do an illegal smog but it cost like 300 bucks every 2 years. Expensive af. So for convenience I'm doing a smog legal H swap. I heard that you can't put an older engine in a newer car since prelude goes up to 01 and I have an 02. But the 01 02 accord is basically the same exact thing so I think it should be ok. I want to boost so bad though...... 250-300 whp daily would be nice! The sound of the BOV is amazing
