get the gsr, everyone has an Si. the gsr is alright tho, i mean for the price of a gsr or Si will be about 7 or 8 thou, get a spec v with 200 hp and 32 mpg.

both the 99 si and integra gsr are great cars and gives good gas mileage. but in terms of performance and engine wise weather you want to go all motor or force induction both engines well give you a good out put horsepower..just a little heads up the 99 si sports a b16a2 and gsr sports the well known b18c1which is the more power full one.. a good combination of build up i would do is go with the b16 head matted to the b18c block and skunk2 or type r manifold with the b16 tranny out of either a dohc vtec del sol or the 99 si..this setup well run just like a type r.. i say buy the integra gsr. but it's up to you..

If i were you i would go with the Si. I am sure the 99 si has lower mileage and its a newer car and looks clean. the 97 gsr is aliright but you would have to do the 98-01 conversions to make it look clean and the si looks clean how it is. plus if you put a type R head on the b16a2 of the si youll be making as much or more power than a gsr.

It doesn't really matter in this situation. In the end it comes down to what you would like the most. The SI doesn't have a very "strong" motor compared to the GSR but it does have a very nice short-geared transmission (which somewhat makes up for it - that's if you know how transmissions work). It's comparable to the Integra Type R minus the LSD. The SI probably has a more updated interior as well. Exterior wise, there's a lot you can do to it. The GSR has a 0.2 liter displacement advantage which turns into more torque and horsepower. Some people consider the GSR to have the great 5spd transmission because the gears are evenly spread. In terms of the car itself, it has a beefier rear sway bar (13mm vs 14mm). Being that the car's a hatch, a sound system will sound very nice. Otherwise, a lot of everything else is the same. Both cars respond to modifications fairly well (an edge to the GSR because of the 0.2liter advantage). However, when you go boost, it's any body's game. Actually, this goes for just about anything. The civic will probably be easier and cheaper to find parts for though.

We have owned both Accords and Acura's, and they are both excellent and very reliable (I had zero problems especially Acura CL), from Acura CL engine to Acura EGR Valve etc. . The TSX handles better and is a bit more upscale looking (if you care) but it also needs premium fuel. The Accord is fast and only needs regular gas, but doesn't handle quite as well. Our past GSR also has a better stereo. So I'll go with the Acura. But you can't go wrong with either one.
