Marketed as the Acura RSX in the USA, the DC5 Integra was Hondas follow up to the fan favorite DC2 Integra Type R.
The new K-Series engine remained a high revving powerful 4 cyclinder, growing larger from 1.8L to 2.0L. The VTEC mechanism was altered to Hondas new iVTEC resulting in a less than thrilling implementation of VTEC kicking in. The new intelligent system meant a broader torque curve, but resulted in a reduced sense of the engine getting on the cam at higher rpm.
Always a good looking car, the DC5 has been a popular choice for owners to modify, with plenty of options for performance improvements.
