15/16 MC and Booster swap will definately give you harder bite, not even mentioning the reduced pedal travel because of more braking power, you will definately like it i can say for sure, the pedal travel is reduced by half!

thanks for the compliment!

Re: ~*2005 SSM (JDM Based)~*

but just to give you an idea of how low it is... I'm about 6 feet tall, when I'm sitting in the seat, my eye is level with the top of the dash, so basically from outside of the car, you can only see the top of my head
oh ok well thats cool i guess, but i think im leaning towards some black corbeau seats cuz they r more comfortable and not so low.

Im almost 6ft. too, but couldnt I get those buddy club seats and put some bracket to make it taller or something? what bracket do u have

as for the height, the seat doesnt play as big of a role as the seat rails

i'm using Vision seat rails, the seat is mounted on the lowest setting

seat wise, its whatever appeals to you, just to rate my Buddy Club seat.
8/10 for comfort
9/10 for snug

the seat does hurt my back after about an hour of straight driving

I think around $250 CAD for both MC and Booster, around there, used.

It's a definate buy if you're gonna get bigger brakes, or else you're just wasting the brakes with stock civic MC and booster
