Wellcome aboard!!!

Well if your Acura had a i-Vtec, then it must have been a recent version.

Comming down by 120bhp will surely be a disappointment. Lol

Exclamation hey

it was a 98 Integra ..they are no longer in production in north america..
but they r fast cars ..the Acura - RSX succeeds the integra ..
we (me n mi frend owned the car ) ran a 1/4 quarter mile of 16 secs ..roughly .. the max speed i got outta it was a 235 ks ..dunno how is dat in mph ..we have K's in canada .. mi comp was formatted ..i wud post a pic on of the speedometer .. but i lost it .. speeding on highways here is hard too many patrol cars ..we removed the rev limiter ...or else cars here dont go more dan 180 k's ...gas cuts off ... it was gud enuf to smoke the mustangs (even the GT once but he was granny shifting i think ) n camaros ..we put an AEM cold air intake and high flow exhaust ...

we got a chrysler - intrepid now ..its GOLD in color ..(very gay i kno ) 2.5L V6 ..arnd 150 bhp ..pretty shitty ..ud enuf to pick up ladies though .. CHRYSLA !! but japs make gud man ...
mi favs the Skyline gt R34 .. i hope to buy it one day ... las time i checked the retail on it was 74 Ks ...

take it easy ..n a happy new year ..
drink hard n drive fast .. *DEVIL GRIN*

sorry she did a quarter in 14 s approx i dropped handbrake at the launch .. ( confirmed wid mi buddy) ..we hoped the car wud do a 250 but we didnt trust the traction ..she felt too nervous and twitchy ..more coz i mi buddy spun an Chevy impala doing 140 in a country side stretch ..we didnt notice the slight gravel on one side of the road we missed a electric pole by a few feet damages the rims as we ended up sliding down a small ditch missing the pole ...integra - first run we did a late 185 k's in 4rth n 2nd run it did a 234 in top gear ...

i didnt kno we cud edit the most riteaway ..am new

will try n post pictures soon ..later !
