yes and no for the same car, yes in the aspect that the acura rsx is equal to the honda integra,

but no that there not equivalents.

honda integra type r is better because:

JDM has larger throttle body and larger intake runners

JDM has higer compression, 11.5:1 (vs 11:1) pistons

JDM has different intake and exhaust cams

JDM has different fuel maps. We can remap our k20a2 ECU to run-JDM

JDM has a larger diameter Header

JDM has a larger diameter Exhaust (.25")

JDM Has SatNav system, we get CD

JDM has aluminum Lower suspension arms on Front

JDM Uses 22mm sway bars front and rear (we have 19mm)

JDM has Brembo Brakes (we have s2k brakes)

JDM has 17" light weight alloys

JDM has different speedo (to 180km\h and type r label) and Tacho (redline at 8400)

also (posted from another site so some may be duplicates)

* forged aluminum front lower control arms

* bushings

* brembo brakes


* lower weight chassis

* aluminum hood

* 220hp 152lb/ft torque

* smoother intake ported by very fine grains of sand

* smoother exhaust ported by very fine grains of sand

* Tri-Y header

* Catalytic converter is further back because of this header

* Pistons with a chromoly skirt and higher compression of 11.5:1

* different transmission ratios with 4th 5th and 6th being shorter

* Shorter final drive ratio being 4.764:1

* Helical-gear limited slip differntial

* Light weight chromoly flywheel

* Chassis bracing... the Type R has additional structural baces strewn throughout the chassis making the chassis stiffer

* Red Recaro seats

* Door panels w/ red cloth inserts

* Momo Steering wheel
