I was just wondering, whats a better motor? I'm not too sure on this one...a Honda CRX motor, or a Integra Type-R motor?!?!?!
ITR motor by far...but it is more expensive
ITR motor is good NA wise...a GSR motor is good NA or FI wise...
darn motor cost 4000k alone ,, if u can get a good turbo and install it for half the price and make the same amount of power as the gsr thats if u want to save a little cash. thats my recomendation. Ive done my homework i got a 99 civic ex i'm throwing a turbo on and it should be maken 230 hp without messing with the internals. yay ,,,,,,,,,gl with that
Remember, the ITR engine was built specifically as a homologated road race
engine, and as such was handbuilt to tolerances that regular production
engines rarely are, and made with parts specific to the engine, so that it
woudn't have to be rebuilt to go racing. So of course it's going to be more
expensive, even with out being much more powerful. That's the case with the
whole car, in fact.
It would take $20k on top of the cost of the car to duplicate the ITR from a GSR if you took it to a pro racing shop to ready the car for endurance road racing. For just a street car with a bit more punch, it's cheaper to do as you suggest, but it won't last as long.
