6MT Front brakes on Sedan

I was wondering if anyone has swapped the front brakes out of a 6 speed to a sedan. I have cross drilled rotors and 04 pads on my 03 and I am still not getting smooth braking. SO I want to upgrade. Anyone know what I would need to buy or if any parts are interchangeable.

THANKS

you should get rid of the cross drilled rotors and replace them with quality OE brembo blanks.

that should not only improve the bite, but also smooth out your braking.

6MT calipers. Both use the same knuckles. 11.8" rotors & pads from the 6MT as well.

This will take you from 11.1" to 11.8" Not only that, but Hawk has pads readily available for this setup. That in itself would help tremendously.

I've been contemplating doing this for some time. The only problem is the calipers are ~ $167 each from Majestic Honda. I don't know if it will give me the braking I'm looking for, so needless to say I haven't done it yet.

I've driven my co-worker's auto coupe many times and you can definately feel the difference. For 400 dollars + cost of Hawk pads I think its definately worth it if you DIY imo. Also it looks a lot bigger/better when comparing side by side.

Thanks!

the AV6MT front discs/calipers would be good on my sedan.
the 04TL6MT brembo calipers/discs would be VERY good. somebody is going to figure out what it takes to fit them up one day.

I tried to figure that one out early on... I think it'll work with TL knuckles (although still not sure.)

04 TL 6MT Brembo calipers and discs combo is what I'm waiting for. I already got the Brembo blanks with ceramic pads.

Spoiler, Splash guards, fenderliners, chrome tips, day/night mirror, 3M clear-film hood protectant, 35% llumar Tint, pinstripes? (came with it)
Brembo blank rotors with Napa Auto Premium Ceramix brake pads (stops better than stock brakes)

Accord coupe 6-spd manual 11.8" rotors & calipers will fit behind 16" wheels, this I know. Otherwise, I wouldn't do it (I'll have to use my stock 16's for winter driving.)

I don't know about the 7th gens, but on my 6th gen I put the TPM rotors on from stock blanks and noticed a large increase is braking bite, which is exactly what the 6th gen needs. I don't see it going any different on the new models.

So, have you done it? How's the different compare to stock?

It didn't. My new slotted & dimpled rotors on all 4 corners (with OEM Honda pads) made an improvement in braking bite as well. No oversize rotor, stock diameter.

I want to try Hawk pads with these before jumping into the 6MT ($$$) caliper / rotor game.
