Default Thought u might want to know

some words about Honda Integra Type R or Acura Integra :-

A regional variant is known in North America as the Acura Integra Type R (DC2). A Type-R variant of the North American RSX was not available. In the rest of the world the RSX (DC5) is still called Integra Type-R. (This applies to only certain production versions of the DC5, inasmuch as there are differences in the brakes, suspension, motors and other parts of the DC5 Type R versus the DC5 Type S.)
The DC2 Type R came standard with a 200 hp (figure may vary in different countries, 195 hp USDM) 1.8 L DOHC VTEC engine, known as the B18C5 (US) or B18C (Japan), and other versions depending on the country where it was sold. Equipped with a close ratio 5-speed manual transmission and a Torsen axle, the DC2 Integra Type R had significantly improved performance and handling relative to the non-Type R Integra.
These were the result of extensive changes, including a strengthened chassis with extra spot welds and thicker metal around the rear shock towers, weight reduction (reduced sound insulation, thinner windscreen, lighter wheels and exhaust), more power (due in part to an 8400 rpm redline and hand-polished intake and exhaust ports), and suspension upgrades. The result was a capable sports coupe which was acclaimed by motoring journalists worldwide. Interestingly, there was little net weight difference between the Integra Type R and the Integra GS-R, because the extra metal and cross bracing in the Type R almost completely negated the weight reductions. The DC2 Type R was the only Honda Type R ever sold in the United States.
An interesting and little publicised fact about the 1996-2001 DC2 Type R is that Honda lost money on every single vehicle sold, even though extra dealer markups sometimes made for excessive dealer profit. Honda produced the DC2 Type R for homologation purposes to meet FIA certification of the motor and the chassis changes to make the car more competitive in N-series and World Cup racing. The details required, hand tooling in early versions and finishing the product through the use of various small fabrication shops in Japan made for increased costs in manufacture that could not be made up in the list price of the vehicles. Honda (and Acura in the US) deemed the car important for the marque's image and important for the racing programmes of the era, and the parent company therefore accepted a financial net loss on each vehicle sold.
The DC5 Type R (Japanese market only) comes standard with a K20A 220 hp (164 kW) 2.0 L DOHC i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine. The "i" in i-VTEC stands for intelligent VTEC, which employs VTC (Variable Timing Control) to advance or retard the timing up to 50 degrees. The Integra Type R comes equipped with Recaro seats, Brembo brakes, a close ratio 6-speed manual transmission, a limited-slip differential, and a stiffer suspension.

I used to routinely get to drive (every 3 months) Acura Integra or RSX or TSX as loaner cars when I used to leave my Acura 3.2 TL for service. But never got the R type since they don't keep manual tranny for loaners. The Integra was a fun car to drive, but felt less powerful compared to my TL.

A good 50-60bhp difference between the TL & the Integra?

There is a white and brownish-grey Integra Type-R in as well in Bangalore. The car is in great shape BUT the papers are not clear (from what I heard). Prospective buyers(if any), please check the papers thoroughly before buying this one.
