Took a ride in a JDM integra Type-R!

SO I found the only shop in a radius of 400 miles that sells aftermarket Performance parts. They are just getting started, and deal mostly with hondas. Now, let me say first, I HAD zero respect for hondas...until now. The owner of the shop has an actual JDM integra (Right hand driver) It even has the Honda badge on it still...Holy SH!T. We were bullshiting about cars and crap. I was like "I saw your car out there and I am not asking to drive it...I just want you to take me for a spin in it." So, he did.

That thing is SOOO damn fast. It would blow my GTS outta the water... Handling and everything. Plus, it is stock. Sucker has insanely stiff bushings, awesome clutch, and enough damn HP/Weight ratio to push you back in the seat...

SO, basically now I must do anything I can to be able to beat him. I am thinking Trial Header, Trial Exhaust, Power FC should do it. If not, 3zz kit. That should throw a huge can O whoop ass at him! He says it has 205 HP ...and it MUST be to the wheels.
How much does that car weigh?

Type-R is over rated.. I use to have one, and stock for stock a GTS can run with them and beat them with fair drivers. 5hp more on the JDM model is not even noticable.

I think not my friend. Not this one at least...That thing had serious power. When the VTEC kicks in it pulls so much harder than my lift... It was crazy. But think what you will.

But you can't see internal work that way, for all you know he had a big bore kit with all the fixins. Or your lift bolts are trash.

The ITR and the GTS should be about the same..if you're unsure, how about challenging him at the 1/4 and then finding out wink
