personally if you have 600 i'd try find some integra dc5 brembos on ebay. they take 330mm discs if i remember rightly. should have some change left over as well

It all depends matey on the type of driving you do. If you are always on off throttle and brake hard then ferodo pads are good. I have a type r and I currently have mtec discs and i can say they are quite good so far. Just grooved though. I have red stuff pads as well and whilst some won't like red stuff i do. I do some spirited driving occasionally and they stop me well.

The integra dc5 brembo calipers will fit the FN2 type r which you have. With the s2000 discs which you will need and some spacers for the alloys. They will stop you better than an upgrade of discs and pads on normal brakes. If you can find some within your price

Any OEM set up wont need spacers. So FN2 discs and pads will fit straight on. I wouldn't reccomend Turbo groove though.

Hit up ABP and look into stoptechs, even the plain ones are epic

This is why I don't rate EBC discs and Greenstuff pads. VW312mm set up on a mk4 Ibiza TDI 130 ( 200bhp). Few laps of Mondello park quite a few years ago.

I am in a similar situation - I need to replace mine, so looking for a bit of an upgrade, nothing too major though. From what I've read/seen so far, I am thinking EBC yellow stuff pads, but can't decide between the EBC Ultimax Sport Slotted, or Stoptech SportStop. Any thoughts?

My Mtec discs are doing me proud. They've stood up to some heavy use. But consider them as very good budget fast-road discs.

EBC discs are awful and greenstuff pads are worse.

Stoptech's are the mutts nuts but are priced accordingly.

Mtec discs are cheap steel not a bad price but id keep oem over them, I have stoptech grooved, ds500 pads and hel lines, if you eant real stopping power you need 4 pots but unless your car is highly modded theres no point

Only thing I've changed is the pads (oem to DS2500) and the difference is like night and day. After 20 miles of punishment across the moors earlier I had no fade at all, and they still bite hard from cold. IMO it doesn't matter what else you change, as long as you change the pads
