Default How can i tell if a car is a genuine Acura Integra Type R.?

i'm going to be checking out a car and the person says it is a Type R, but i know their are people who just throw on the sticker and says it is one. How can i tell if it is really a type R.

Check the engine and other places in the car and ask for a manual.

1st of all type r's came with 5 lug rimsengine wise it should have a B18C5 1.8 liter 195 hp engine stock, you should be able to redline it up 8500 -9000 rpm, It should have lsd, larger brake rotors and calipers then a typical integratype r interior and exterior - black mesh/suede bolstered seats with red stitching, mid-height rear wing, front lip spoiler, body colored side rocker panels, shaved door moldings, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob

1st off, dont listen to Gustavo. Hes talking about the RSX-S which is an integra dc5, but not an "acura"ITR (Integra Type-R) came with 5 lug rims, bigger brakes and rotors. Also, it will only come in black, yellow or white. Will have shaved sides and a rear ITR spoiler. VIN will help asloInside the car, it should have black cloth seats, similar to the civic Si, and it has red stitching, along with the shift boot. The cluster should have a redline at 8,200RPM. The engine should have a red valve cover, DOHC VTEC, manual transmission 5 speed, LSD, it should be a B18C5 (USDM), not a B18B1 or B18C1. Again, B18C5. Also, Type-R come with a "type-r lip", which looks more agressive than the oem lips. And has red acura elbems.
