Hey Steve, I was on the website and saw that there's two different sets of rotors for the 2.0L and the 2.3L. What would the difference between the two be, because I was assuming the brakes were the same

The i model has smaller brake rotors/calipers than the 2.3L equipped cars. Not sure all of what parts are needed to do the swap, but I would recommend it if you want your car to stop faster :D

Wait...so wouldn't it be best if they just made a gigantic brake rotor set compatible with both the 3i and 3s? I wonder if the 3s brake upgrade could be used on the 3i

OK so i plan on upsizing from 15" tires/steelies to 17" OEMs. Would my stock brake setup be fine, or do I need to upgrade to 2.3L brakes?

I think the stock wheels available with both cars is the only restrictive part about upgrading. And if you get bigger wheels, you'll most likely want bigger rotors so they don't look so tiny inside the new massive wheels.

Also you'll stop faster :)

With the stock RSAs I was able to lock up the tires when mashing the brake pedal now my car just nose dives hard and doesnt lock up :D So now I need to get some better brake pads or bigger calipers and rotors :D

Man I got a long road ahead of me. I'm starting to wish I got a 3s..or SP23 or something. But at the same time I like my simple and slower 3i lol.

Will probably get the new wheels/tires, then do a suspension overhaul for x-mas, then probably some brakes in the spring

i've still got a bit of life in my RSAs, so i'm using those up first till fall....then after winter, i'll be getting new rubber and hopefully new wheels if budget allows....otherwise, i'll have to just powdercoat the stockers and live with that...keisuke, maybe you shoudl buy my 17" next spring to help fund my new wheels purchase....j.k.
