Integras have been built from the Civic's chassis since the first Honda Quint Integra in the '80s. Most parts interchange for a reason. One cannot be beter than the other as, for all intents and purposes, they are the same cars (while the Integra got better engines from the factory, they swap into Civics making them essentially idnetical from a tuner point of view). Even the weight differences don't matter once a tuner gets a hold of them.

Sorry, don't mean to waste people's time with factual content.

Carry on.

i think its funny about that civic. besides thats its rwd. and has the v6 from the nsx. but the picture of the header underneath. it has 4 primarys. a v6 would only have 3 per header. i dont know why that bothers me.

yeah preety much. also that like I said, if you put as much money into almost any car your gonna get similar results. Regardless of what the car is primarily based upon.

I also conceed that the case applies to touring cars in all countrys race conditions, btcc, dtm, ect. They may call it a honda accord, but again the parts on the car are not anything near to what you would buy with your honda road car from the main dealer. BUT they get to call it a honda accord.

Well that's enough waffling from me, I think you know what I'm on about.

My personal choice for most tunable engine (that we can buy) would be the 4g63t. It might not put out as much as a fully worked jzgte or rb26dett, but it will produce a hell of a lot of power with relativley little cost compaered to the later two. And really who of us can afford to spend huge money on our cars? but we could probably all afford a few grand to squeeze out 400 reliable hp.

right! really enough waffling now I promise!
