Get one that gets good gas mileage. Why on earth do you want to feed an Acura more fuel than it needs?

Yea Id prefer the Integra also. But to inform you, Acura is a branch of Honda, so if you were outside the states they would just call it a Honda Integra. Also, in Japan, the Honda Integra has a sexy "JDM" front. Bascially, Integras get about 20-25mpg i believe?Also, the fastest, and most rarest integra is the Type-R, or type racing. It has a B18C5 DOHC VTEC, with a red valve cover. Has 195 horsepower (doesnt seem like alot, but man thats fast back in the day, even for a teg.) and redlines at 8200 RPM. I think the Type-R is my favorite. The 2nd fastest is the GS-R, or grand sport racing. It also has a DOHC VTEC, but is coded for a B18C1. Has a black valve cover, and produces 170hp @ 8000RPM. GS-R is cool to, and probably the best integra to choose if you like driving stick (like i do) and likes to hear the VTEC kick in. VTEC JUST KICKED IN YO! aha..And the 3rd fastest are the RS, LS, SE and GS. These Integras are all the same, except for some options. All these 4 trims has a B18B1 non-VTEC, which means you dont get to hear that "VROMMMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!" during around 4.5k RPM - 6k. These integras are pretty easy to find, however, you could always do an LS/VTEC swap form a B16 or B18C, and so forth. RS- Base model, "type-r" shell because of the lightweight and "stripped" model. LS- Most preferred, has a little luxury stuff like power everything, cruise control and bla bla.SE- Has leather and a rear spoiler, but they turned it into a GS.GS- Same as an SE.And these four integras all have the B18B1, non-VTEC motor at 7000RPM. Oh, and these come with an automatic, or a stick. ....hope this helps.

the words "fast" and "Integra" should never be put in the same sentence. Those cars are slugs unless you heavily modify them...

The Type-R and GSR are the fastest Integras the Type-R's are the fastest and the GSR's are the second fastest, but the Type-R's are rare too find.

if you are looking at other acuras besides the intega i would recommend the rsx. the base model has around 160 hp and the type s (6 speed) has 201 i think, but i have a base and i love it handles great and gets good gas milage also.

type R's are not rare...theres a yellow one for sale here...Integra's are everywhere. (but they're old and hard to find parts for.)RSX-S = 200 hpRSX = 140 hp (28 mpg or higher depending on how you drive.)

I have had Integras, Vigors, Legends, a TL, and now an RL.I liked the TL best, but my Legend was fast like the TL. My RL has over 200,000 miles on it and it kicks ass. The TSX is ok, but I don't like how compact and cheesy it is inside. The RL is classy, and the TL is more sporty.
