    About 145K miles on her. First 100K were put on in the rust free south
    Paint is in great shape, however a few rock chips in the front. Car has been pampered

    Things I have done so far
    -Tein HA coilovers
    -Thermal R&D 2.25 inch muffler with custom piping from the cat.
    -Waterpump and timing belt within 5k miles ago
    -Rota Circuit 8's in bronze 15 by 6.5 wraped in Brigestone s03's pole postions (195-50-15) Less than 500 mile on them
    -Nuespeed front strut bar
    -Skunk2 Rear
    - Will come with stock parts (including wheels) if trader wants them

    Maintance
    -Oil changes every 2.5k miles
    -Coolant/thermostat changed last month
    -Front and rear brakes


    What I am looking for is a Integra GSR 94+ (obd1 would be top choice) that is in good condition (no rust), basicly stock. NO RICE MOBILES (wings, bodykit, weird ass paint jobs, APC PARTS)
    OR $6500 OBO

    post about what you think or anything you want to know.
    BTW I am in Michigan.

    Reason Why I am looking at selling this is because of a few reasons

    Not as practical as a four seater (but i stuck with it for 1 year now)
    I want/wanted to do a swap (b18c5) however, for the price of the swap plus the car, I could buy a GSR for that price, have OEM reliability, knowledge about where the car (engine) came from.

    I love this car. It is great for the winter (hardtop) and even better for the summer (targa) but it is getting to expensive

    Yea I love the sol but by the time I am done with the swap alone, I will have spent 10k on this car and it will just be a stock type R sol (kinda in oxymoron there). Cheapest I have found a ITR swap is from hybrid revolution, just ECU, Engine and tranny (no mounts, axles, shift linkages, stuff like that) for 3900 plus I would need new clutch, (I was going to get the toda light flywheel and clutch, 900) Timingbelt waterpump 100-150, ICEbox, 300. Spoon mounts 500, other little crap, 100, Possible VAFC or Hondata, beer...that is the expensive part. As you can see, It is going to be alot.

    well theres why it gets expensive... you have a 900 dollar clutch / flywheel setup and 500 dollar mounts when you could get oem mounts and a cheaper clutch that doesn't say toda

    an ITR swap in a sol with suspension work (i.e. TEINs and sway bar etc.) would be very competitive in street mod i would think..

    What's up with you now hating too on the Del Sol Colin? I don't understand why you and B can't just love them Sols.... Yeah, its a 2 seater, which means you HAVE A REASON to be a dick and say "No, I can't drive you somewhere. I already have my g/f in the car." :) I love saying that, assuming I have a g/f...

    I can vouch that this Del Sol is certainly clean and well maintained.

    It is not that I dont like it. I love how it is orginal (at least around here), cool looking, targa top, roll down rear window, simplistic (interior has maybe 6 diffrent bottons)...

    There are alot of reasons why I love it. However, when i first joined this site, someone asked a question about if they should buy this hatch for 3-4k when he was going to swap it. B. told the kid that he would never buy a project car for alot of money. Well I did. I could have bought an s for about 2k cheaper but i wanted those extra 20hp, rear discs and alloy wheels.

    But everything is up in the air. As I said, testing waters. That means i MIGHT get rid of it. I have brain activity time to time and this just came through my head. I had this one convo with a guy from teamintegra the other day (after the HS nationals) He was saying that he was going to keep his car way past college. You know that a few months after you get rid of it, your going to regret selling it and even more so when your really older (cough* Gabes age cough* lol) So this is going through my mind. Then my dad is at the other side of the spectrum and he cringes everytime I want to do something else to my car. So really I dont know right now. Only Time will tell.


    btw, thanks John for the vouch
