Replace the main relay. It is located under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the plastic panel to gain access.

The main relay, is that the fuse panel on the driver side along the side of the car or is it actually up under the dash board?

Seen alot of misinformation, I just want to clarify a few things.
First off, the question of which is better, TYPE-R or GS-R?
If you want to stick with all-motor mods(non-turbo/supercharger), go with the TYPE-R, it has a higher compression(11:1).
But, if you want all out power and insanity, go with a GS-R, it's compression is still high at 10:1 but with low compression pistons and cylinder sleeves, it responds much better to TURBO or SUPERCHARGING, mods and is capable of far more power than a TYPE-R.
I do not remember the magazine, but from a shop called ENDYNE in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas, they turbo'd a 95 GS-R to 744 WHP(wheel horse power). without slicks it was running 10.01 in the 1/4 mile.
Stock TYPE-R's at 195 hp are faster than Stock GS-R's(170) and will respond better to simple cheap mods.
VTEC in fact kicks in at 4400 with the first lobe, and the second lobe of VTEC kicks in at around 6000.
I own a 95 GS-R got it around 04-05 for 6k, the owner before me added Cold Air Intake, DC Headers, and Borla exhaust. An enormous storm here in UTAH swamped my old GS-R engine because i did not have an air bypass valve(now i know), USDM(united states domestic market.) I imported a JDM(japan(ese) domestic market) engine. it has a higher compression of 10.6:1 than a stock USDM GS-R, and 180hp instead of 170, with mods has over 200 hp.
I haven't topped out my new engine yet, need to fix my front right drive axle first(huge 1-1/2 foot porcupine damaged it) but my old motor with same mods hit 149 on I-215 here in utah.
Take Care All, and please research before giving info.

#993 of 1037 Problem areas in a 1994 GSR sedan
Oct 10, 2007 (10:46 am)
I'm going to test drive a 1994 GSR sedan with 200K miles tomorrow. Are there any problem areas I should look at? The owner has all maintenance receipts and is the original owner.
I'm really looking forward to the drive. I had a 1998 GSR that I sold in 2001 and can't wait to get back behind the wheel.
Thanks in advance,
#994 of 1037 EXPENSIVE SERVICE NEEDED! HELP!
Nov 28, 2007 (2:32 pm)
Have a 99 Integra GS, with 38k, Just brought it in for servicing. Here is what they told me I needed with prices. Am I being ripped off, or is this legit?
New Belt- $799. ( never had it replaced, so probably need it, car bought in 99, new, have had all service done, but never new engine belt.. they are telling me it should be replaced every 60k or 5 yrs.)
Trunk Latch-$468 (latch is sticking, telling me they need to replace whole thing)
Front Brake-$189 (they say needs replacing, ok..break is making kind of hollow sound, so could be true)
Splash Shield-$117.98 ( hanging down, needs replacing)
Sunroof-$918 (sunroof is difficult to open and they say the whole motor is going and entire thing needs to be replaced) I live in southern nevada, so love having the use of the sunroof with the nice weather, but is it worth to replace or not?
Basic 37,500k service- $79.95
Love my car, have had no trouble since owning it. Replaced battery once, and recently bought new tires. Should I be putting this kind of money into a car that is this old? Should I skip the sunroof repair?
Any insight you can give me would be much appreciated!

OK, I have the same Car, Turn Key, Just a "Click" I tried the Clutch pedal positioning, reset the "Maint required" even That it was not on, it's a waiting game till it starts. WHere Can I find this Switch under the dash? Is there a Shematic that can lead me to this item? SOme say: Starter is going bad, Others say Starter relay, I have replaced the Fuel Pump relay Last month ( and it was not needed) Also the ABS system was replaced not I have an issue with the Breaks!
The Pedal st a stop will eventually go all the way to the floor. Acura service want 400.00+ for repair of just the Break Master Cylinder.. I can get the part for less that 75.00. Is there a web site I can go to to show me some parts breakdown for the "Switch you refer to and perhaps the Master Cylinder are.. I really Love this car and have had it since the day of it's birth
By the way, I have read many of your replys to folks... I would like to thank you in advance for your support to them and Also to let you know... You have helped me as well

WOW, Was I asleep!? The Vehicle is a 1994 Acura Intergra GS-R. 110. K miles. All services done since birth of car. I wonder if this Starting problem is something Acura may already be aware of. Perhaps I may get LUCKY and there is a service Bulletin on it. Hmmm?
Shift Master Cylinder (was leaking) then not shifting properly
Battery with Reversed leads
Relay (which controls fuel)
ABS master cylinder and accummilator
Shouldn't this car be Toast?

Jan 14, 2008 (11:59 pm)
hi. i bought mine in 2005 with 189k on it for $1500, but i did buy it from the parents of a friend. i feel you though, i love my integra, but i feel like i think it's worth way more than anyone else is willing to pay for it. hope this helps at all.
by the way, my 92 has no badge other than "west" on the hatch. i think it's a gs-it's a 1.8L 3dr. just curious if anyone knows.
