    Not a bad car from what it looks like. The engine is a DOHC VTEC engine of some kind, either a b16a (SIR), b18c1 (94+ GSR) or a b18c5 (TYPE R).... or a b17a (92-93 GSR).

    Check the stamp on the engine, it will tell you.

    well, thats a b16 intake manifold.. so i'm guessing and SiRII motor

    edit* after looking at that manifold some more, its not an sir2.. it looks more like the b16a2 manifold

    Looking good. That should be a very fun car. Would look good with some black wheels. Then again it looks good with steelies.

    Black. Because chips suck. And your girlfriend/wife is guaranteed to rake it over a parking block/curb at some point. Its inevitable.
