    i have a 92 acura integra GS as my winter car....i blew the motor about a month ago..but its ok since i just put my accord back on the road.......

    the integra is an automatic and the body has 132k on it
    would you
    -rebuild the motor to stock
    -rebild the LS motor for speed
    -rebuild the motor but with LSVTEC
    -buy a stock 95 LS for 200$ from the junkyard with 118k on it but w/o trainy
    -buy a stock 95 LS for 500 from the junkyard with 90k on it but with an automatic trainy

    selling/junking it is not an option because i will need a winter car when the winter comes again

    my accord is *RICED* out so i can't drive it in the winter so i need that integra to run again

    its an automatic
    performance modifications will be damn near worthless on there .... just get a working engine and call it a day
    no sence wasting time or money trying to put together an LS/VTEC in an automatic

    id go with the $200 one, unless your tranny is starting to feel shitty then it might be worth the extra cash for the one with a tranny
