The Integra GSR came to america in 1992, with the B17A1 VTEC motor pushing out 160HP with a 8,000 RPM redline. This 1st generation GSR was available in 92 and 93 and is the rarest model of all GSR's. Not very many were brought to america and the B17 motor is rare. It is also I believe the only GSR without airbags.

The 3rd Generation GSR came out in 1994 for America. It offered the new B18C1 VTEC motor which is on of Honda's most famous motors. It pushes out 170HP from the 1.8Liter 4 cylinder. The 94-97 GSR's were the same.

The 1998 Integra was still considered a 3rd generation, but recieved some updates. They basically just updated the looks instead of making a whole new model. The headlights and taillights along with the bumpers were new for 98 on all Integras, including the GSR. The only other differences for the GSR were leather seats and different wheels. This model made it thru 2001 when it was then replaced in 2002 with the RSX.

I personally like the 3rd generation GSR's the best. But I also like the 92 because it was the 1st GSR in america and it is very rare.

they became available in 1992.

2nd generation integras (1990-1993) had the B17A1 (160hp motor)

3rd generation integras (1994-2001) had the B18C1(in the GS-R trim level, 170hp)

i prefer the 3rd generation myself although the 2nd gen (DA) gs-r's are rare.

C420wizzle hit the nail on the head. However, to add to his answer, the 94-01 models also had wheel differences.

1994-1995 GSR wheels

1996 GSR wheels:

1997 GSR wheels(later became 1998-2001 LS wheels):

1998-2001 wheels:

I almost forgot, the 1992-1993 GSRs were hatchback only; 1994-2001 were offered as hatchback or 4 door sedan. To add to that, the LS Special Edition (called the GS from 1998 on) also sports the same wheels as the same year's GSR.
