you will need accord wagon rotors since the legend calipers require 11 inch rotors.

be aware that bleeding your brakes could possibly be a problem since legend calipers are trailing edge calipers and rotating them to be leading edge calipers places the bleed bolt at the bottom of the caliper rather than the top where it belongs.

you need to upgrade to an adjustable proportioning valve too now taht you've added all this extra power in the front, so that the rear wheels can also do some stopping. The idea is to balance upgrades in the front and the rear, otherwise you'll throw off the bias tremendously, and therefore actually hurt your stopping distances. Note: even though it'll feel like you have more break power. $50 from summit, but I believe you need two of them (one for each wheel in the rear).
