Had some fun last friday on Interstate 99 outside Altoona PA with a new yellow Integra Type R. That car was quick! I was able to hang with him but I have to give acura credit for that kind of power out of just 1.8 liters of displacement. He looked pretty impressed with the looks of my car and when he came up beside me he gave me the look like


We were around 90 mph for a good bit and the other cars on the highway were in awe. was a good 10 miles of driving

StreetConcepts: What have you done to your car to make it so fast? What kinds of mods do you have? Could a Stock V6 Cougar beat a Stock Type R? Reason being there will be plenty of them in my hometown over the May long weekend, and throughout the summer. I would like to know what I'm getting into if i decide to race.

lol...stock cougar vs a stock ITR? If I wanted a sure fire bet, I'd bet on the ITR. Craig has lots of mods, and he hung w/ a stock ITR. Their gaw-awful fast for what they have.

If you let him put about 8k miles on that car, he'll pull away from you then. These engines benefit a lot for a good break in. I didn't believe it at first, but the car is getting quicker now that it has 6k miles on it.
