Folks,
I need to replace rear calipers on my 2011 Pilot EX-L. Since I developed a sort of "shipbuilder's disease" I figured, while at it, I would replace the front ones too, since they are marginal.
Now, I was thinking of putting in new brake hoses while I was at all of that. I'm looking at a $10 Rockauto aftermaket hoses (which I don't believe in) vs. $50 OEM hoses that I was going to put in. However, on my older classic truck I was very happy with installing the braided stainless steel brake lines. There seems to exist a kit by StopTech that in the end costs the same as a set of OEM rubber hoses.
Has anyone ever bothered installing SS brake hoses and if so, did it make a difference on your Pilot (on my truck it's night and day - much more responsive brake pedal than the original rubber ones)? If so, which kit did you use?

I seem to recall someone on here has done that before and noticed a huge improvement in braking. The brakes on these cars are rather wimpy and many look for ways to beef them up a little bit.

It definitely made a massive difference on my other truck. It's also that I can get SS hoses all around for just $50 more for all 4 hoses, than what I would pay for OEM rubber ones.
