Default What is the difference between an Integra LS and GSR?

Do they both have VTEC engines or does the GSR engine only have VTEC since the engine says VTEC on it?

the computer of the car depends on the year more than the type of engine. my 99 ls is obd2, along with a 99 gsr. the gsr is a b18c1, while the ls is a b18b1. you are correct with the difference being the gsr has vtec while the ls does not. along with that, there are hp and torque differences, the gsr having more than the ls. badges on the car, along with the rims will differ as well.

Ok so the LS and GS-R are integras, but they do have some differences. The LS is called the "luxury sport" model, and has a non-VTEC B18B1 engine that redlines at 7k. It also comes in an automatic or stick. The LS is the same as the RS, LS, SE and GS. RS - base model, (regular sport) and is usually called the type-r shell because its light. LS - luxury sport.SE- Special Edition; has leather and a rear spoiler. Now a GS.GS- same as SENow the GS-R is a very different integra. The GS-R has a B18C1 DOHC VTEC motor, which produces 170HP and redlines at 8k RPM. The GS-R also has leather std (99-01) and has a rear spoiler. The GS-R is one of a kind man. Also, it only comes in a manual, but if you count the Honda Integra SIR-G (USDM GS-R), then it comes in an auto. But this is the ACURA Integra GS-R, so it only comes in a stick. Also, the chassis code is different. Oh, and a badge in the rear hatch/trunk that says DOHC VTEC.DC4 - non-VTEC integra 2 door; RS, LS, SE, GSDC2 - VTEC integra 2 door; GS-R and Type-RDB7 - non-VTEC integra 4 door; LS, SE, GSDB8 - VTEC integra 4 door, GS-R, Type-RSo yea, the LS is the non-VTEC B18B1 that produces 140hp and redlines at 7,000RPM. It shares the same motor with the RS, LS, SE and GS. (DC4) The GS-R is the DOHC VTEC B18C1 that produces 170hp and redlines at 8k; manual/stick tranny only. (DC2)Oh, and dont forget the Type-R. This integra is rare, and what some people call "MaDdd JDM yo!" This teg has a B18C5 DOHC VTEC that has 195hp and redlines at 8,200RPM! It has a 5 lug, OEM kit, type-r wing and some other cool stuff. I hope i helped and dont forget to pick a best answer.

92-95 is obd1 and 96+ is obd2. 93 and earlier integra ls, rs, or gs is a b18a. 94+ ls, rs, or gs is a b18b. neither the b18a or b18b is vtec. the gsr is vtec and has a b18c1. the type R is vtec also and has a b18c5
