FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Wilwood Disc Brakes announces a new direct bolt-on Caliper for Honda and Acura
Camarillo, CA • May, 2013
Wilwood Disc Brakes is pleased to announce a new direct bolt-on DynaPro Honda/Acura Caliper (DPHA) for Honda and Acura models originall y equipped with 262mm diameter rotors. These calipers bolt directly to the stock mounts on factory spindles, fit over the OE 262mm diameter rotor, accept the OE brake hose, and clear many factory aluminum wheels including the EM1 Si 15” wheel.*
Designed around Wilwood’s proven DynaPro series four piston calipers, the forged billet bodied DPHA caliper delivers high-strength clamping force and positive stopping power. Four stainless steel pistons provide fully balanced pad loading, along with the corrosion resistanc e and thermal retardant qualities of the stainless alloy that will keep your calipers cooler and running trouble free for many more miles. Calipers work perfectly with the OE master cylinder and ABS functions, and are available with either black (P/N 120-12949-BK) or red (P/N 120-12949-RD) high-gloss, high-temp, brake fluid resistant sealed powder coat and feature Wilwood’s signature logo.
DPHA calipers are available individua lly, in kits with a pair of calipers and a set of brake pads, or in a complete front kit that includes calipers, brake pads and OE replaceme nt 262mm rotors in either our ULHP or SRP treatment . ULHP plain-face rotors are cast from premium grade, long grain carbon iron, and provide high performan ce and rugged durabilit y for a wide range of competiti on, performan ce, and sport driving applicati ons. SRP performan ce rotors add Wilwood’s signature direction al drill and slot design with a protectiv e black e-coat finish. The drill and slot pattern adds hi-tech styling with the venting qualities that preserve pad performan ce. The heat resistant e-coat finish protects the rotors from rust on all areas that are not swept clean by the brake pads.
Friction will be provided by BP-10 compound Wilwood “Smart Pads”. BP-10 is a unique metallic composite formula that provides quiet engagemen t and low dusting, but with the added temperatu re range and higher friction values of a semi-metallic compound pad. BP-10 runs clean and quiet on the street, with improved stopping power and fade-resistance for those fun days at the track.
Wilwood performan ce aftermark et brake component s are loaded with the features and technolog y built from decades of dominatio n in world motorspor ts, and the proven reliabili ty of Zero PPM defect quality supply to leading OE manufactu rers around the world. These component s will not only optimize the braking performan ce, it will deliver mile after mile of reliable performan ce and service life on your Honda/Acura.

This is what they call the rover 262 caliper upgrade in the UK.
