Default What type of 1994 acura integra do i have?

My dad bought me a 94 integra last year and I am just wondering what Kind it is. ex. LS, GSR, etc. Power everything, Sunroof, no spoiler, cloth interior.My uncle who is a mechanic said it has a vtec but there are no markings on it saying vtec on the body. I would ask him but its late

If it says vtec on the engine then its a GSR. If not then its either a LS or RS. I think your car is most likely a LS though because it was very rare for a RS to come with a sunroof.

There's web sites where you can input your VIN number and it will give you all the info for your car. year, make, size motor, etc etc. Or you can call a acura dealer and I'm sure they can give you that information once you give them the Vin number. You can also go to car fax. com i think that's the web site not sure. but there a web site where you can input your Vin number and it give you full info on your car. weather its been salvaged, car accident, how many owners. etc.etc. hope this was helpful to you.

If you wanna know, look right under the header and a little to the let of that. You should see something like B18C1 or B18B1. That will determine your engine. Not by looking at the valvecover. Unless your car was rebuild, then the label wouldn't be true. Hope that helps.

well you can check the VIN number and look if it says DC2 or DC4 on the VIN cause a DC2 is a gsr and a DC4 is a ls/rs/se.... the vin will look somthing like this JH3DC(2 or 4)78273212 lmao get it?

It sounds like it is a gsr! Does says "honda, DOHC VTEC" on the engine cover? It doesnt have to say it on the side of the body, someone probably took out the sticker on the side just to fool some people

With all the motor swaps over the years of these cars, it's very possible you have a GSR motor in an LS body. Power door locks, windows, etc. and sunroof are a dead give away that you DON'T have an RS. Look at the valve cover (it sits on top of the motor), if it says DOHC VTEC on the top of the valve cover, then you have a VTEC motor. Another dead give away is finding the VTEC solenoid right next to the distributor. It has a green top and is about the size of 1/3 the size (lengthwise) of a roll of dimes. And you could also check the engine code about midway down on the motor. It's on the left-hand side when looking under the hood and should say B18C1, B18C5, B18B1, or B18C.The C1's were GSR motors, the C5 were Type R motors, and the B18C was a JDM (Japanese) motor. All 3 motors were VTEC motors.The B1 was the standard motor in LS/RS/GS Integras, which were non-VTEC cars.You could also possibly have an LS/VTEC car. This motor mates an LS bottom to a VTEC head, getting the best of both worlds (VTEC horsepower and LS torque). This is why you should check the engine code (again halfway down on the left where the motor and transmission meet) as well as checking for a VTEC solenoid (right in front of the distributor where the spark plug wires go)If you check the VIN, it should read JH4DC...A DC2 is a GSR/Type R and a DC4 will be an RS/GS/LS.

theres no ex trim for integras....its either rs, gs, ls, ls special edition, gsr, and type r only.....rs has no moonroof and no rear windsheild wiper....b18b1 enginegs and ls is practicly the same...b18b1 enginels special looks just like the gsr except for the motor....both dont have a third brake light in the back window...b18b1 enginegsr has the vtec motor....b18c1 enginetype r didnt come to the us until 97 so you dont have that....pop the hood and read the engine code plate on the block.....also if its a gsr, it should have a cover for the spark plugs while the other cars didnt...
