crosstour calipers?

Here's one, since the crosstour has supposedly 11.7" rotors, with twin piston calipers, will those calipers/brackets fit gen 7/8 cars with 11.8" rotors with no modifications?

Are the mounting ears on the knuckles the same distance apart on gen 7,8 and crosstour?

will not fit the gen7 v6 unless its a v6 Coupe 6mt or the hybrid since it comes with 11.8in rotors. If it doesn't you can buy the brackets for them. That what I did for my V6 6mt sedan. I didn't know that the coupe and sedan 6mt were different. So I bought the brackets and then I am waiting to install them.

Hopefully someone will measure clearance between the mounting tabs on the xtour calipers and the clearance between the outer edge of the rotor and bracket.

The pic is a little deceiving, as it looks like there's a lot more room between the ears on the knuckle. Could be though.

the 6 speed has single caliper and the stupid crosstour has dual piston? Honda is completely lost and hopeless.

^ Probably due to the extra weight. And don't forget the extra cost built in.

Would this be much better than the legend GS dual piston calipers that should bolt right on to a non coupe 6MT or Hybrid?

That's Honda's interactive network for their employees.

Unless you have the dealer number, name and password I've not been able to get in.

It's very similar to the Service Express site that the aftermarket can pay for $10 for 3 days. There are some thing only seen by those that work for Honda though.

Would like to know too, since my 7th gen is due for front callipers. One question I had is if the master cylinder and the vacuum from the intake of the 7th gen (auto 2door) are enough to power the hydraulic of the dual-pistons? That may be tricky I think....?

I dont see why not. There are plenty of people including myself running the legend gs dual piston calipers as well as people running full on bbk setups (brembo, ksport, wilwood) using the stock master cylinder etc. Like I said im running the gs calipers and i've had them on for over a year now without any problems.

Yes & No. They are not a direct swap like Legend Cailpers. Must order with brackets, and have mounting bracket shaved 1/2", also must enlarge mounting tab hole on spindle. And yes, i have them installed. 11.8" rotors required.
