Question OEM Brake upgrade

So, what is the best bolt on OEM brake upgrade for the 2.2cdti typeS
The brakes are a bit weedy compared to what i'm used to on my VW's
on my mk4 golf it was as easy as going to the breakers and, handing over €50 for a pair of TT carriers, buying drilled and grooved discs and pads from MTEC and hey presto 312mm summer salt inducing brakes.
What other model can offer up their stoppers for my civic?
(I did a search but could't find anything definitive)
TIA

Accord Type R, if you can find any. Several of us have/had these and never had any issues. They really should have come on the car as standard, or something more meaningful that the OEM anchors.

Or the later Accord Type S, these are moosive.

If you're not planning on remapping the 2.2, then maybe just try some softer pads?

Oh it'll be fettled with. It would be rude not to. I want to get it ready for it first so want to track the brakes down, uprated clutch and a FMIC i think too.
what generation accord do the big brakes come from? I'll get to trawling the interwebs.

ATR caliper/carriers come from the 1998 to 2002, CH1 model/version.

Disks bolt straight on.

These are for the fronts, and the general consensus is to leave the rears as they don't do much work.

ATR calipers and carriers are getting harder to find. Try auction sites for cars breaking, not just the calipers.

Check the MTEC/etc website for disk/pad prices, for the ATR look for model CH1.

I run the atr setup on both my fn2 and farqui s old car. Work well for oem setup.

I have got 1 spare atr caliper that needs rebuild can have cheap if any use. They do come up on ebay and lot being broken. Can also buy fully recon units from some vendors

Thanks guys, any idea what price I should be looking at for a pair of calipers and carriers.?
Also, what's the majority verdict on what brands of discs and pads to use and where's best to look for them?
Ta, again

Depends what you can find, rather than what you should pay.

FYI: these are on eBay at the mo; Accord Type R CH1 1998-2002 Twin Pot Big Brake Calipers

Ordi occasionally has a set of ATS stoppers available, check the For Sale section.

Thanks, I've seen an ATR breaking on fleabay,I've got no cash right now just trying to plan ahead. I have the Type R alloys so going up in size shouldn't be a problem.
I'll keep looking thanks guys

Think i paid about 100 for calipers and about 50 for carriers. Rebuild kit cost about 50. Spent about 40 having them shot blasted and powdercoated. Rebuilt myself. All in cost me about 240 ish then for calipers with carriers ready to fit

Discs oem or mtec are fine. I went mtec. I just asked vendor to supply set up to hard road and track use and only knew mtec once arrived. Cant remember what i paid but opted for black coating.

Pads is personal preference. Oem wetr no use to me but might be fine for you dependant on intended use. Project mu hc+ are my prefered pad but cost about £160 a set now. I got some hawk hp+ instead for bargain £110. Has some factors i dont like but can live with them. Mainly they can squeel a lot and initial bite is too harsh but just adjusted my braking style while have these on


I prob could have bought cheap bbk but the cheap kits are not my cup of tea and wouldnt give me much benefit over atr setup runnin now
