not sure, but the rotors aren't so i wud assume that they use bigger calipers, also assuming this cause when i went to go buy pads the guy at auto zone asked if i had an auto or manual, and sadly i had to say auto.

if you are looking to upgrade i recommend the acura legend caliper swap. It bolts right up on the 6 spd's w/o any modification and its a nice upgrade since its 2 piston instead of the the accord single piston.

The swap for the 7th gen accord v6 6 spd is a direct bolt on because the legend and the accord share the same size rotors. The calipers would need to be of the 94-95 Acura Legend GS which is Raybestos Part # FRC10627 & FRC10628. Its a direct bolt on and retains stock brake pads. Its a really nice brake upgrade considering how cheap and easy it is.

$206.25 w/shipping? Not bad at all!

Anyone actually do this that has first-hand experience?

I did this swap a few months ago. Its cheaper other places than rockauto because you get money back for the caliper core once you bring you stock calipers back to the store. I think the cheapest prices i found were in Napa auto and Kragen. Like i said its well worth the upgrade, i definitely felt a difference compared to the stock 6 spd calipers.

Did they take your stock calipers as a core even though they are not the same? I'm guessing they did with your hook-up.

yeah they dont care which calipers you bring them back as long as its calipers. They didnt even open the boxes to even check if they were calipers. I probably could have gotten away with putting rocks in the boxes. Plus i returned the core at a different kragen. I checked other stores too though. As long as its calipers its fine, doesnt have to be same ones you ordered. Plus no one knows the difference between what you bought and what you bring back.

honestly, i think it doesnt matter what company remanufactured them as long as you get all new seals, gaskets, rubbers, etc. I just went for the cheapest one. Remember though, you only need the caliper, no bracket, you use the stock 6 spd caliper bracket.
