Yeah you'll nee the EG6 hubs to upgrade the front brakes.

Either look for someone who's breaking an EG6 and get a price for both front hubs and brake assemblies, or look at aftermarket stuff.

I've heard good things about the wilwood kits for EGs, could look at those? Not sure what they retail for over here, but those are 4 pot calipers and you will stop hard.

Can easily get a 282mm disc under a 16", will fit under most 15" wheels. You can do a home made big disc conversion from the EG6 hubs but I can't remember which parts you have to use, I'll go have a look see and post back when I've found it

If you want to do it on the cheap you can use VTI hubs, 282mm disks and Prelude calipers. Only thing is getting 15's over Prelude calipers can be a pain (as I am currently finding out!)

I've got Integra Type R DC2 Alloys 4x114.3 but if you decide on using the MB6 Hub's, Calipers etc you'll need at least 5mm wheel spacers on the front as the calipers are bigger than integra type r dc2 one's.

you will need vti hubs with 262mm brakes to do a swap. integra calipers and brake disc of a MG ZR 160 or the MS ZS 180 which are 282mm

this is the set up im goin for on my esi as im putting a b16 in mine

if your esi has abs and was built after 1994 you will already have the 262mm brakes as they changed them to the same as the vti

Edit:

oh and also change the brake master cilinder to a vti or integra one
