    1995 Acura Integra GSR chassis in frost white with 162,152 original miles. I purchased this car in the fall of 2000 with 37k miles on it from an older gentleman. Since then, the car has seen college-daily grind duty, auto-x events and track days. I won't lie about what I have done with this car, and that is drive it like it should be. The car has never been involved in any sort of accident besides the ordinary parking lot dings, etc.

    I am originally from Florida and this car has NEVER SEEN SALT/SNOW/FREEZING WEATHER. Ever. The chassis is very clean; with ZERO I mean ZERO rust. Any time I ever catch any spots of surface rust under a weather strip or trim piece I sand them down and POR15 them. Literally, there is zero rust on this car. I drive it on the street a dozen times a summer, mostly to and from Pocono, NHIS, or Lime Rock Park. The body has been cared for since day one with Griots Garage products. The car has been clayed, polished, waxed and washed religiously over the last 6 years and the paint is still very shiny even at this mileage. The only non-original paint is the passenger side door, where it was involved in a parking-lot incident. This car has been the focus of my automotive madness for over 6 years, and I have been through every single system on the vehicle and know that it is in top shape.


    Suspension:
    *PIC Performance Select threaded body dampers with 12k front and 14k rear rates
    *JDM ITR 23mm rear sway bar w/BSQ kit
    *Poly bushings out back, fresh OEM up front, trailing arm bushings have about 3 years on them
    *All new ball joints and inner + outer tie rod ends last year (2k miles)
    *PIC Performance adjustable camber upper control arms w/hard rubber bushings
    *Includes SIX Kosei K1 wheels with decent shape BFG TA/KDW2 tires

    Drivetrain:
    *Integra Type R 2nd-5th gears w/all new OEM syncros, bearings, and seals 7k miles ago.
    *Integra Type R helical differential w/new revised bearings installed and shimmed properly (7k miles)
    *DriveShaft Shop stage 3 road race/rally CrMo axles and CrMo hubs w/ARP extended studs
    *Recent intermediate shaft replacement
    *ACT HDSS clutch
    *ACT Prolite flywheel (<8 lbs)
    *Fresh clutch master and slave cylinders
    *Fresh wheel bearings all around
    *HaSport tranny mount, Prothane drivers side mount, JimFab rear mount

    Brakes
    *ITR front calipers and brackets-machined to fit GSR knuckles-fresh caliper rebuild
    *11 inch SpecR redrilled Prelude VTEC front rotors
    *Hawk HP+ all around (have some Axis ultimates also)
    *Rear calipers rebuilt and all new caliper sliders (front and rear) w/high temp grease
    *Goodridge stainless lines w/OEM Honda banjo bolts and crush washers 300 miles ago
    *6 month old brake master cylinder-OEM Honda

    Engine:
    *1993 B18A Integra LS engine
    *New timing belt and water pump
    *Perfect compression on all 4 cylinders (170x4)
    *103k miles on the motor
    *1995 Integra LS intake manifold, GSR throttle body and injectors, GSR wiring harness
    *Tuned on Crome-calibrations for both 87 and 93 octane included as well as dyno sheets for the buyer
    *Endyn catch can-plumbed into block and head
    *Marshall fuel pressure gauge

    Oil system
    *Mocal spin on adaptor w/1/2 NPTF fittings
    *Aeroquip fittings and -10 stainless line throughout
    *Mocal -10 oil thermostat
    *Mocal 25 row -10 oil cooler
    *Spin on oil filter mount for large PH8A oil filter
    *Autometer oil pressure gauge w/-4 line from block

    The entire oil system was designed to keep a ~400 wheel HP turbo motor cool on track and during long tarmac rally stages. This is enough oil cooling and filtering capacity for enduros (something I had planned on doing).

    Chassis
    *Autopower 6 point DOM steel bolt in roll cage
    No longer SCCA legal due to the lack of double door bars (has a single door bar) but is still legal for NASA and EMRA as well as many other sanctioning bodies.
    *Disabled but still intact SRS system
    *Disabled but still intact ABS system
    *Battery mounted in trunk w/stinger 4GA wire, 100 AMP breaker, and quality installation.
    *JDM Integra Si-VTEC steering wheel (non-SRS)
    *Skunk2 shifter with urethane bushings and a ball bearing at the end of the shifter
    *JDM OEM Honda Integra window visors, for those wet sessions
    *Sparco Sprint seat included with purchase (currently has a Recaro Profi-keeping for the Bimmer)
    *ITR door cards modded to fit with door bars
    *Removed sound deadening and floor painted with 3 coats of epoxy enamel-doesn’t chip at all

    A bit of history here:

    After driving this car through college, through the HPDE ladder, auto-x events etc I built and installed a turbo motor and tranny for it about 2 years ago. At that point it was no longer my daily driver. The car ran well and was very, very fast on track. I have always liked this car and it has been through a 190 wheel HP all motor setup, the turbo setup, the built motor turbo setup, and now back to the track ultra-cheap-to-run setup. The car competed in and finished 6th in class at the legendary Targa Newfoundland tarmac rally in 2005 (with myself and my dad behind the wheel [at different times!]). This grueling, 2300 km event is one of the toughest in the world. The car drove from Boston to Nova Scotia (800 miles each way) and competed in the rally and drove home. This is a testament to the durability of this platform. The turbo motor and tranny were swapped out last year in favor of a more acceptable road racing class (H4 Honda Challenge car) but my plans to run H-C have since changed. I hate to sell her, so I am going to make sure she goes to a good home. If you want this car to beat around the city and treat like shit, don't ask to buy it. I have a folder full of receipts for the buyer.

    This car runs low 1:05s at Pocono North on BFG Street tires (TA KDW2).

    Well, that's about all I can think of. If anyone has any questions, PM or AIM me at LateApex31. Thanks!

    The car currently resides just outside of Boston, MA. I am asking $8500 OBO. OBO means 'or best offer' for people who are going to bitch about the price tag of an 11 year old car.

    No, that car is sold.

    This is mine now. There used to be an SR20 under the hood, then I started building a nice S52/M50 frankenstein for it this fall. Then I came to my senses and decided on something 130 lbs lighter (engine + tranny combo), that sits lower and farther back in the chassis, and is bulletproof. Not to mention, 450 NA wheel HP is no problem on an LS1, and used Nascar dry sump parts are cheap! Someday, twin 30Rs FTMFW.

    I would have started with one if I could have afforded it. 3 years later, I'm as far as ever to getting one.

    Thanks! It's funny, since my dad used to own a 1976 BMW 2002, he also has an E30 M3 that he has had since 1990, now he also has an X5 4.6 iS so in a way we have always been a BMW family.....only now am I able to afford some BMW love. I think there are a lot of similarities between BMW and Honda, just that Honda implements the technology on smaller engines that cost less.

    I still am torn on the motor, as the SR20 makes awesome power and is very light and the M52 is a proper BMW mill. But I think a proper hillclimb car has to scare the absolute shit out of the driver.....this is where the 400 HP LS2 motor comes into play :ph34r:
