99 integra GS

Is it worth it to buy a 99 integra GS all stock for 4900?
175k and no accidents.

I just want to get a GSR but i can't seem to find a good one 94 - 01.

How much does it cost to buy (including installation) a b18c1 engine?
Would it require a transmission change too? since gear ratios are different

Other than the fact the B18c motor is a great little motor, are there any other reasons it has to be a GSR?

You have quite a few possibilites should you go with the GS, not to mention cheaper insurance.

You could do an LS-Vtec conversion. These can be done PROPERLY, and SAFELY nowadays without breaking the bank... if you're paitent you might even be able to find a nice, low km B18c5 motor/tranny for a good price. You could also do a custom turbo kit on the B18b motor...

Or if you really want to go crazy, you could save your pennies for a K swap.

Parts are all over the place for the Integra. I think it's more important to find a good shell, free of accidents and rust. If that GS is a colour you like that's another added bonus.

Don't be too quick to dismiss it. This is just something to think about.
If you do decide to go with a GSR, just be paitent, and the right one will come along in due time

Insurance is pretty much the same. I've had both models and Spoon makes great points. Either a Type Aaarrgh or LS, RS etc...

You'd be surprised a few bolt ons and decent footwear will do to your car. Vtackk is great but not the be all and end all. PLUS- no need to pay for premium gas.
