The second one is only available outside the United States. *I.e. Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan etc.

You can go ahead and buy the "Bug-Eyed" one and do the Japanese Front conversion.

It will usually run between $600-$1200..

Hey friend, the second picture is the Acura Integra Type R and did not bring that specific body style stateside. They did however bring the Type R. When you look for integras there are several different sub models to choose from. You have the LS 4cyl 1.8 DOHC non-vtec decent power (around 140hp i believe) but more luxury options that go fast. The GS which is kinda like ur base model but again with the same engine as LS (140hp again). GSR is a bit more go fast with a 1.8 DOHC WITH VTEC this little guy will move (around 160hp). Then theres the coveted Acura Integra Type R with B18c5 1.8 DOHC WITH VTEC (around 180hp). Common ones to see being sold are the LS but you can find the JDM body style for sale on ebay or you can buy whatever integra you want and convert it yourself. Good luck and happy tuning.

first picture: usdm. second picture: jdm.

the jdm front end is way cleaner compared to the usdm. why we got stuck with that front end is a question everyone asks.

a front end conversion runs approx $1000-2000 depending on the quality of parts you get. and the install isn't just a simple bolt-on affair.
