Default Which Integra is better for a type R conversion, GS-R or LS?

The Conversion will include the type R rear wing? And if i want the GS-R, can i install the rear JDM fog light and re wire it to be a 3rd brake light?I know that the GS-R is better then the LS but when you take out the GS-R wing then there is no 3rd brake light. And for the LS the 3rd brake light is on the rear hatch.

you could re-wire the rear fog light as a 3rd brake light. same with people who wire up jdm sidemarkers to always on instead of blinkers as they were meant in japan.for the integras from worst to best is ls, gsr, type r.

first off an RS would be your best bet since it doesnt have a sun roof or any power options, like the Type R. If you're worried about not having a 3rd brake light than try to trade your hatch for one that has the 3rd brake light built in at the top.

yeah actually the RS is better for a Type-R conversion. but the GS-R already has a VTEC motor. the JDM models didnt come with a rear fog light the was the European Market. you can buy after market Type-R wings with leds in them for the third brake light and yeah you could rewire the fog light to function as the 3rd brake light =]. its up to you in the end, becuase it will never be an actual Type-R you can use any integra no one really cares, as long as you do it rite! loljoin
