Introducing Project Integra

I recently purchased a 1990 Acura Integra LS with 225,000+ miles on it. It is in really rough shape, but I find it a steal for the $200. It needs to make it through the lovely Wisconsin winter then I may try to use it for Chump Car / 24 Hours of Lemons.

The Good:

  • 1.8 L B18A1 – 130hp/121lb ft TQ
  • 5 Speed Manual
  • New All-season Tires
  • 3/4 tank of gas!
  • CD Player (works well)

The Bad:

  • 210,000+ Miles
  • Broken VSS Cable (Speedometer does not work)
  • Rusted through muffler (This thing is loud!)
  • Worn-out shocks (all 4)
  • Rust holes all over the body (visible)
  • Hanging headliner
  • Leaky (not positive of the source, most likely cowl and drainage)
  • Bumper falling off

I immediately changed to oil to Castrol Syntec Synthetic and added some power steering fluid. I bought a new muffler as well, but have yet to put it on.
