Generally on most cars, especially well balanced car's like ours have the front brakes do 70-75% of the braking. Therefore it's not that big of a problem to have the front brakes be more powerful, they come from the factory that way anyways. It would be a much bigger problem if your rear brakes were stronger, as they would force the car to look up the rear tires and spin. If Sinji felt the car would drive a lot better if the rear brakes had added bite, he could simply just upgrade the rear pads to a better compound.

I'm not overly familiar with Endless BBK's, but in general, the main advantages BBKs offer are more consistent braking distances over substained abuse as they don't overheat as easily. It usually takes a strong master cylinder and an overall pretty stout caliper design/piston strength to give more braking/clamping force. In all actualality, BBK's often lengthen your stopping distances (a bad thing) because they are heavier, again, their advantages are that they stop at that same distance over and over again.

IMO, it's better to have OEM brakes or Spoon calipers (weight savings and better pedal feel-over OEM) with race pads, hi-temp brake fluid (Motul RBF 600 or ATE) a stronger Mstr cylinder/prop. valve and better ventilation to the brakes than a BBK. That way, you haven't gain any weight, you stop shorter, can use any pads made for the S2000 and haven't really changed brake bias.

Again, I'm not real familiar with Endless, but I do know they are a premiere brand. So is Brembo, but I'd never buy a Brembo GT kit, I'd probably buy one of Brembo's Race caliper's, like what's on Will from E-autos car. Just my $0.02.
Changing your master cylinder will not reduce braking distance, all you will notice is a different pedal feel. I had a endless kit on my civic and i noticed shorter stopping distances and a more consistent stopping distance whether it be after 5 laps of the circuit or 40. Always had the same result which was less then the OEM setup and i was running the same endless pad compound and rotors. Just my 2c worth. If you really want to reduce braking distance, buy better tyres.
He makes several incorrect statements, so I wouldn't put much weight behind them.
