1996 Acura Integra LS 1.8 from North America
This integra hauls A$$
Great car to own I would recommend anyone looking for a car to get this one. I been having it for several years and nothing has gone wrong.
I am a mechanic so costs for tuning the car monthly is free.
Aftermarket parts for this car is also great.
Currently installed on the car is a full cat-back muffler, oil changed every 3000mi, air intake system, Enkei 17" rims, also converted from automatic to 5 speed manual and a soon: Integra Type R head swap.
The only thing that cost me was the Integra Type R head swap which will set me back: $900 both for installation and the motor.
After doing this the car will run 11's on the quarter mile w/o Nos or Turbo.
Those will be added later.
About the drivetrain and handles... it handles like a knife through butter.
It'll accelerate 0-60 in about 5 seconds.
Seats are very comfortable. I did a drive from North Carolina to Florida which normally takes about 12hrs I managed to do 120mph the whole time in less the 9hrs.
Even though it's an automatic it still takes on the baddest street tunerz.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hey man that's great! How much horsepower do you get now. How much did adding the head make. I want to do it to by integra, but its hard to find someone to do it.

I have a 1999 Acura Integra LS automatic and I have an intake, headers, no catalytic and a high flow exhaust.
For first comment for the individual that said with Type R heads he will be getting into the 11's with no NOS or turbo; buddy, all you're gonna get is around 250 hp. That's enough for the 14's or 15's...
And for the buddy that has an Integra automatic just like mine, that he said goes 0-60 in 5 seconds; LOL, you're a funny guy because that is not attainable with a stock automatic. I do agree with your Integra going 120mph, but not 0-60 in 5 seconds. Thanks.
