Default How can I tell if its a GSR?

I went to the dealer ship and I saw a car and the Paper that is in the window says its a 1997 Acura Integra GSR, How is a way I can tell that its a GSR. Some Real proof other than asking the dealership.It has no emblum outside, The car manual doesnt say GSR. the vin is JH4DC2387VS002487

Do You see the "DC2"in the 4-6th letters of the VIN? That codes the car as a 3rd gen acura/honda integra. The 2 means it has VTEC, which again, is a GS-R or type-R.Also, the GS-R redlines at 8000RPM, so check that inside. Also, it only comes in a manual. (JDM Integra SIR-G/JDM GS-R comes in an auto, but ths is an "Acura" integra, so manual only)The motor is the MOST important. A GS-R has a B18C1 DOHC VTEC motor, 170hp @ 8000RPM redline. If you look under the hood, and see the words "DOHC VTEC" on the valve cover, it's a GS-R. And also, if you look near the transmission, you will see the words "B18C1" embedded near the transmission.And if you get a 99' up, all GS-R come with leather STOCK.So again, the VIN is the most revealing.DC2 - GS-R, Type-R; DOHC VTEC 2 doorDB8 - GS-R, Type-R; DOHC VTEC 4 doorMotor: B18C1 DOHC VTEC 170HPRedline: 8,000RPMAgain, make sure the integra is a DC2 or DB8, which is the GS-R or Type-R.If it's a DC4 or DB7, its a FAKE!PS. I myself have a GS-R, and i love it when VTEC kicks in. :P

all gsr's are 5-speed...also if you plan on buying the car...pop the hood and look at the engine code on the block...it should ready b18C....and jus to be sure look for the v-tech solenoid which is right next to the distributor on the valve cover...its a small cylindrical plastic shaped piece
