I would go with none of them. Every one has an Integra, Prelude, Cvic, or Accord. I would get something that no one else has, like a 1988 Toyota Supra TwinTurbo R, or a 1993 Toyota Celica All-Trac Turbo.

But If I had to pick between those three, I would say get a late 80s Prelude Si. 1988 and 1989 were always the best looking years of the Prelude in my opinion. Or get a 2002 Honda Accord with the 3.0 VTEC V6 engine. Just dont get and underpowered 4cyl model, the car is to heavy to be powered by just 4cyl. You wont be able to make a good tuner car out of a 4cyl one unless you do like a b18 or b20 swap.

Both the GSR and the Type-R have variable timing while the LS and the RS use non VTEC engines. All the Integras have a 1.8 liter engine. The LS and the RS squeeze out 140hp@6300rpm and 124 Ft-lbs@5200rpm. The GSR's engine puts out 170hp@7500rpm and 128 Ft-lbs@6200rpm. The Type-R's engine puts out 195hp@8000rpm and 130 Ft-lbs@7500rpm. Hope that answered your question

i can get something for under $10,000... what u think? btw... i just dont like ford mustangs.. so please dont say that.

ive been looking for the gsr integra but man, its hard to get a good price with anything with low miles... i did however find one gsr with the supersonic blue color, a 98 and 81,000 miles for only $8,000.. but the mofo sold it in one week! so i was unlucky. my next choice might be the gs..

i found a 2000 gs for $11,500 with only 50,000 miles and its a dealer so i can always work my way for that under $10,000 and im damn good at working these guys. <-- prob the best one i found yet couse of the very low milage...

but the problem is its not a gsr......

All they do is pretty much bore the engine out a little bit more and increase the compression ratio

The RS is the bottom of the line, the LS is a little better and the GS is the top of the line of the 3.

I'm looking at integras myself right now, and I want to find either a GSR or a type R. What I'm wondering is why is the torque so low on even the type R? only 6 more torque than the base integra? Isn't torque what matters most in accelerating? So how much faster is the GSR or type R than the LS and RS in 0-60 and 1/4 mile?

I am pretty positive that the LS, RS, and the GS do 0-60 in 7.5 seconds and the quarter mile close to the Type-R. The Type-R takes premium gas so why would you want to buy something like that for a daily driver with gas prices today? I think the torque is low because of a higher compression ratio or something like that, I don't know for sure but it does have a higher rpm range.
