k20 sdn who was ride of the month a few months back has the Spoon monoblock calipers.

Its not that hard to do, but if you have never flushed brake fluid and bleed brakes than i probably wouldn't recommend doing it yourself.

Another thing to consider is most 4 piston calipers would require different a new set of wheels with a higher offset and/ or a wider rim to clear the caliper or a 20mm spacer with stock wheels.

Pad change is easy. But Honda torques the hell out of the caliper bolts. You need a nice sized breaker bar.
:yeahthat:

PB blaster and a breaker bar were necessary to get the bolts loose. I also had to disconnect the brake line entirely even after loosening/removing the bleeder screw to push the piston back into place - even with a c-clamp's help it wouldn't budge, so a full bleed was required for each of the fronts.

Putting my first set of rims on in a few days, pushing 46,000, probably gonna do it all at the same time so I can coat my nice new rims in brake dust. I'm glad to hear its pretty easy to do.
