    upgrade front brakes on a 87 dx

    Hey all,
    First time posting so if this has been covered elsewhere please forgive me! I'm somewhat of a newbie but am looking to upgrade my front brakes on a 87 dx. Right now I believe brakes are pretty stock, I'm wondering if it's possible to swap a 2 piston caliper in, or alternatively, if just upgrading the pads and rotors to brembo or something of the like would provide much of an upgrade if any?

    you could start with my Type R brake upgrade I did on my 1988. I had the 10.3" brakes(Lxi).

    If you have the smaller brake rotors upgrade to the Lxi rotors package. I think you will need new steering knuckles but i have never actually done it on an Accord.
