Would be a nice upgrade if they fit 96-00 civic brackets

I'd be very surprised if it did just bolt on but it might be possible to have a custom bracket made. What's the piston diameter on them I wonder?

Accord type r callipers bolt on with the correct carriers and spacing. no reason why these cant with the correct carrier. may need custom fabrication to get the correct offset and spacing. did funky brakes used to do custom carriers? long time since i looked into it. Ive used ATR twinpots and 300mm discs with the only issue i cant use 15" wheels anymore..

Here is the thread. Post #132 has measurements.

"Box arrived late today. The hub bolt spacing is 4 7/8", which is 1/8" wider than the MINI 4 3/4". To get them to line up would require that 1.5 mm be removed from each hole. I have some pictures below. The bigger issue is that when I got one installed but using the existing hub bolt holes, it was obvious a 13"/330mm rotor would work perfect. The pads extend out over the top of the rotor mock up by about 3/16" The problem is that nobody makes, that I can find, a 4x100 one piece rotor that big. Wilwood has two piece units at 12.88. . These calipers are wide and with the Enki wheels I have need some 4 mm offsets to clear the caliper. I could get up to a 1.1"/28 mm rotor to work with them."
