The Acura Integra had an illustrious history; it dates back to 1986 until 2001. Let us sample this duration right out of the first year of the 2nd generation, a 1990 Integra LS 2 door hatchback. Having had only 1 owner during its life and accruing 190,246 miles while remaining reliable and sporty the entire time. Don\'t let the odometer reading fool you, this 4 banger and its 5 speed transmission from the Suzuka, Japan assembly plant was treated to a full rebuild at the 121,173 mile mark, so she\'s ready to go another 200k without problems. Our consignor also has a multitude of parts that will be included with the purchase as well as the original window sticker and service records dating back to new. Let\'s have some fun, JDM style!
Torino Red Pearl, a 1990 thru 1993 Integra LS only color, paint covers all the steel and neoprene panels that make up the semi wedge shaped Acura. Some areas of fading, scuffs, and stone chips are noted, and an underlying issue is pushing the paint off below the rear quarter window on the driver\'s side. This sporty package combines looks with aerodynamic styling with just a trace of the 1980\'s square and rectangle design that was prominently used during the era. Crystal clear 3-piece headlight assemblies lead the way up front with a neoprene body colored bumper below, and fret not should a mishap occur, as our consignor is including a new pair of OEM headlights, fog lights, and a new OEM front underbelly cowl panel. A black mid beltline molding wraps this bumper and continues to encircle the entire body. Black trimmings are on around the windows and the same black covers the dual sport mirrors. A sloping hatchback with huge greenhouse glass and a rear wiper leads back to the squared off tail end with flush mount wrap-around taillight assemblies. Fittipaldi Exclusive wheels in 15\" format are grounding this sporty skate from the far east and are wrapped in like new 205/50R15 blackwalls. Not feeling the Fittipalidi\'s, our consignor is including the original 14\" steel wheels with the original wheel covers and like new Yokohama snow tires.
Newer replacement custom black and gray leather seats covers now wrap the heavily bolstered front buckets and 2+2 rear bench. Our consignor is including OEM rear seat cushions to sweeten the deal. Fronting these buckets is a black leather wrapped steering wheel with cruise control switches on the right spoke. Up front, the factory instrumentation is embedded in a deeply inset cluster under the factory dashtop eyebrow. Toggles for the power sunroof, cruise control, hazards, fog lamps, and rear defogger are just below and situated to the outboard sides. Dash central holds the dials and slides for the heater and AC systems, of which the AC was serviced and changed to R134a along with a new compressor, condenser, evaporator, and dryer. Just below is the Kenwood KDC-MP8017 AM/FM/CD stereo. The rear seat will fold down allowing access to the trunk space and adds significant cargo area if needed. Speaking of the cargo area, underneath the cargo floor is the spare tire, jack and factory Acura tool kit. Black carpet covers the flooring and up top we see a clean and tight gray vinyl headliner.
A rebuilt in 2005 at 121k 1.8 liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine sits in the original but clean engine bay. This mill produces a maximum 130hp and pushes power to a rebuilt in 2005 5-speed manual transmission. Power is sent from this transverse mounted mill to the tires via a 4.40 final drive.
Showing typical wear for a garage kept and well maintained 190,000 plus mile car some surface rust, is present but unremarkable with factory undercoating keeping everything intact and solid. Power rack and pinion steering with a new steering rack helps your carve the corners and 4-wheel power disc brakes with newer rear pads and rotors brings things to a halt. Providing the ride is independent Macpherson suspension on all 4 corners which have been treated to new front control arms, front sway bar, radius arm and Koni sport shocks front and rear, Eibach Pro-kit progressive rate springs and Energy Suspension urethane bushings. Lest we forget the K-Mac front and rear camber kits and adjustable ball joints. A single OEM style exhaust is on for removal of spent fossils and is looking just dandy.
A quick starter and smooth runner, meanwhile on our test track it gave a firm, but comfortable ride and the interior gave generous space for even my ample frame. Acceleration is capable and swift without worrying about pulling out into moving traffic and shifting was smooth. Under panic braking the car came to a bias free stop and even after my drive I continued to play with the various functions and doo-dads that this JDM skate has to offer. A very nice driving car.
