Default Upgrading brake and hubs

Hey guy I have
2002 Honda Accord 2.3 I have an idea. My idea is to swap the hub from 4 lug to 5 lug while at the same time upgrading to 4 piston calipers Iím wondering if itís worth doing it or what 5 lug hub have better rim choices and that some Acuraís had good brake calipers so Iím looking to see what yíall have done to help me find out what I may do

I don't know if the Gen 6 Accord can accept the brake system and steering knuckles from the Gen 6 TL (either any 6MT or any Type-S model), but those cars come with 4-Piston Brembo brakes. If the steering knuckles and front hubs fit, then you'll be able to bolt on the Brembos, if not, then the fab work will probably cost more than your car is worth.

If I am not mistaken, there is a 5-lug conversion thread somewhere on this forum; "Search" is your friend.
