I posted a PDF with torque specs and info in the post above on the changing front pads thread. The instructions are from an RSX repair manual, which shares the same brakes as the Si.

Here's a PDF of bleeding instructions. I know you said that it wasn't necessary to make a PDF, but I figure others will probably be interested in in depth instructions.

I did everything as it says here, but when I put my tires back, I couldn't move. Do I need to adjust the e-brake? because it seems like it's still engaged when the lever is all the way down...
Help please!!!

Mr.Brave
if the ebrake was disengaged for me how come the cylinder was putting pressure against my rears and it was tough to pull off the claiper to remove pads???

Did you take the cap off your brake fluid reservoire? I think it keeps the system under pressure if you leave the cap on.

Mr.Brave
ya i did... i heard people using screwdrivers and prybar edges to twist and turn the piston back in too.... like its off now but the piston is fully depessed....

is it pretty tough to push piston back in W/O tool?

I used a little 3/8" driven tool that you just hook up to a socket wrench, and pushed... hard... Those calipers are pretty stiff.
