1997 Acura Integra Type-R Modified

Introduced for the Japanese market in 1995, the Integra Type R featured a reinforced chassis, weight reductions, and a hand-built B18C engine paired with a close-ratio 5-speed manual gearbox and limited-slip differential. This 1997 DC2 Type R is a Canadian-spec example delivered new in British Columbia. Finished in Championship White over a red/black cloth interior, it was acquired by the current owner in May of 2022. Modifications include a JDM front end conversion, an aftermarket rear valence and side skirts, Skunk2 Racing camber arms, a BuddyClub damper kit and front roll center adjusters, a Koyo aluminum radiator, an upgraded Fujitsubo exhaust system, an Exedy clutch, red JDM Recaro seats, and a Mugen pedal set. Recent service includes an oil service and new brakes rotors in the front and rear. Showing approximately 230k kilometers (143k miles), this Integra Type R is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Florida with a clean Florida title.

The exterior is finished in Championship White (NH-0) and has been customized with a JDM front-end conversion including Japanese-spec black housing headlights, a front lip spoiler, hood, fenders, side markers, bumper support, radiator support, and grille. A molded aftermarket rear valence and side skirts have also been fitted in addition to a J’s Racing carbon fiber front intake duct and a Fujitsubo single exhaust tip. Other details include red Honda badging, Type R rocker panel graphics, and a rear spoiler. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The painted 15” wheels are mounted with new Nitto Neo Gen tires and fastened with black Honda S2000 Club Racer lug nuts.

The interior has been fitted with red cloth JDM Type R Recaro seats and retains the original rear bench upholstered in black cloth with red contrast stitching. The factory radio has been replaced with a touchscreen double-din Pioneer head unit, and a drilled aluminum Mugen pedal set has been fitted. Factory equipment includes an Alcantara center console with red contrast stitching and a serialized plaque (#446), a leather shift knob and boot with red contrast stitching, and Acura Integra Type R-branded floormats. Other amenities include air conditioning, power accessories, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Integra Type R is powered by a 1.8L B18C four-cylinder featuring VTEC variable valve timing and an output of up to 195 HP and 130 lb.-ft of torque stock. Power is sent to the front wheels by a 5-speed manual transmission with a limited-slip differential and an upgraded Exedy Stage 1 clutch. The engine has been fitted with a Koyo aluminum radiator, Samco silicone radiator hoses, NGK spark plug wires, a red JDM Integra Type R valve cover with Honda badging, a Civic Type R oil cap, a Skunk 2 Racing exhaust header, and a Fujitsubo exhaust system. The suspension has been modified with front and rear Skunk 2 Racing camber arms and a BuddyClub damper kit and front roll center adjusters. Recent service includes an oil change and new front and rear brake rotors.

This sale will include a set of two keys, the original owner's manuals, and a clean title.

    I also noticed the compustar key fob. Does the car have a security system/keyless entry/remote start features? If so, still functioning, and would you know who installed it?

  • ggp.ny (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @jbenz05 Yeah makes sense - JDM front end was probably a different color. Would you say the conversion matches the rest of the car's paint shade/condition closely?

  • jbenz05 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @ggp.ny Greetings Vehicle appears to have no body work only front r Is paint respray cause of the JDM front . So both front fenders bumper and hood was professionally re sprayed by the previous owner to match the vehicle beautiful championship white factory color.

    Is the paint original? 8-10 mils on the gauge points to previous bodywork/repaint?
