I stomped one of these Tuesday. Don´t know anything about it though. Guy was trying, that´s for sure. But I rememebr thinking that this was too easy to be real. I have an intake, header, and exhaust system, advanced timing, brand new plugs. Maybe I was just running good that day. Are these cars hard to beat or are they the bottom-rung Integra?

Depending on the year there is a difference, but yeah they are fun to toy with.

´Teg LS has a B18B2 1.8L DOHC nonVTEC. They run a compression ratio of like 9.4:1 But are almost identical to our BPD, except for the higher compression. So you´d think they would be quicker being about the same weight and all, but..... Like most Honda motors they lack torque like crazy. I´m pretty sure its because our intake manifold is far superior and we have the duel runners at higher revs.

Find one with intake, exhaust, some advanced timing and some interior dropped and you could have a good run.

GSR´s are like 16X HP and have a duel stage VTEC. They are hard to play with, but my friend Dan has one and I could kill him off the line.

The TypeR 190HP or JSPEC 195HP You need a little bottle action or a turbo to play with them. then again they run a compression ratio of like 10.4:1

I thought the regular BP N/A 2nd Gen EGT engine had a 9.5/1 compression ratio, allowing for the 7k rpm redline? that´s slightly higher than the 9.4/1 of the B18 you described, Blade. Maybe I was mistaken? It happens a lot.

I was just surprised how easy it was. Most people say "Integra-that´s a fast car." Guess the LS just doesn´t measure up. And I would love to have a GSR, but they´re hard to find.

its not the compression ratio that dictates the redline, its the valvetrain. Valves, seals, springs, etc.

9.0:1 for our BPD

Honda D16Y8 (1.6L SOHC VTEC Civic EX) 9.4:1

Like I said before Zee. Before 95´ when VTEC was introduced the EGT was known for smokin´ the ´Teg LS. However, VTEC did give them the advantage later on. One thing people say that for is they think about the B18C5 Honda motor, aka JSPEC TypeR. And the B18C4, and B18C5 are the only motors that have a duel stage VTEC engagement....really trick engineering.
