There is a SE that is the base modelThe LS is the luxury version. It has the 1.8 engine with 140hp.Should have leather also and nice 15in wheels.The GS-R is more performant. It has 170hp. Usually doesn't have leather. You should cut 1 second 0-60 with the LS.The Type-R is usually white with a big spoiler. 200hp. No leather but very sporty seats. Handles really well. QUite rare.

Look at the vin number, it is in the dash board on the driver side. You can see it from the outside of the window. There are to many clone TyPe-Rs, so you cannot look for exterior badging. Also alot of the the TyPe-R guys are going to a four lug set up instead of the five lugs to save on wieght. So you cannot tell by the lugs anymore, it is to easy to convert to a five lug or to a four lug.

The..LS- Luxury version of integra, usually leather seats, no vtec, but standard B18 at 140 hp. Oh and usually they come in sedan models, and i guess hatchbacks. Comes in AT and MGS-R- The more "lightweight" integra, with a Vtec at 170 hp, better sounding, leather is an option, only comes in MType-R- Stronger vtec at 195 hp, ONLY comes in Yellow, black and white. Comes with a spoiler, 6 spoke alloy wheels. Comes with a "Type-R" badge. Only comes in M, lower suspension. And to tell the diff between the years...The 94-97 integras, the front headlights are slightly smaller and the taillights are not all completely red98-01 has bigger headlights; and the taillights are all red.

There are many different ways you can tell an LS from a GSR from a Type R. Depending on how you are viewing the cars it can vary. If you are Looking from the outside, obvious choice would be to look at the badging, in cases that the badges are takin off of the vehicle like mines is, you can also look at the wheels. Each model has their own specific wheels provided they were never swapped out. The LS has a mesh style wheel (lot of spokes) while the GSR's come with the Ninja star design (5-Spoke) and the Type R's have a 5 Lug design on them.In this day and age it is very hard to tell the difference since many people swap parts or try to make their car look like a Type R so if you get the Chance to look under the hoods of each one, it is VERY easy to tell. The Integras have a Series code under the hood to the left of the headers. The LS Engine codes are B18B which is non-VTEC......The GSR's are B18C1 with VTEC...and the Type R's are B18C5 with an even stronger VTEC....again very confuzing if their has been any engine swaps in the car. You can also tell with the Gauge cluster. LS Redlines at 7k Rpm, GSR's at 8k RPM, and the Type R Cluster has a 10k Rev Limit on the cluster. Given all of this information, If someone takes enough time and modifies their car, it is nearly impossible for you to tell since all 3 models, their parts (exterior AND interior) can be interchanged, therefor an LS can look exactly like a type R or GSR. Match the Vin number on the windshield to the Vin number on the Engine. If they match, Whatever code that Engine gives you, Is That Vehicle (ex. B18B, B18C1, and B18C5). The information ive given you so far are all based on the fact the vehicle is in its stock or original form. Hope this helps you out. Why do you ask anyhow?

Most of the time they have a little badge on the rear of the trunk which says which it is.
