    ok so i have debated ls/vtec and a JDM ITR motor... power goals are real close so...

    if i were to get the ITR i have a few questions:
    1. Will I have to use a 92-93 Integra half shaft? and I am assuming that I need to use my 92-93 axles

    2. What is the difference, if any, on a 96-97 spec'd ITR and a 98+ spec'd ITR motor?

    thanks

    well i figured out the differences between the 2 motors

    * a 96-97 spec'd ITR has a 4-2-1 2 piece header and a 4.3? final gear
    * a 98+ spec'd ITR has a 4-1 header and a 4.7? final gear

    for that reasoning i guess they feel a $500 price difference

    the final drive alone is reason for the price jump. a 4.7 for the lude is 750 bucks

    4.7 is better accel, 4.3 is better gas mileage. the choice is yours. once i get my engine out of the lude, an lsd and 4.7fd will be installed.

    basically thats what im saying. i only drive the lude on weekends, so it doesnt bother me to put gas in it when i can run my protege for 250 miles (basically 2 weeks commute) on 20 bucks worth of gas. its really all what you plan to do. for a daily driver, id leave the 4.3. you can always upgrade later if you want to. they sell those on ebay pretty regularly.

    BUMP

    would you guys recommend using the stock ITR exhaust cam and a CTR intake cam or just upgrading cams to something like the buddy clubs or something??
