* Found in:
o 1996-2000 UK Civic 1.8i VTi Acura Integra
* Displacement: 1797 cm3
* Compression: 10.0:1
* Power: 169 hp (124 kW) 8000 rpm & 128 ft·lbf (174 N·m) 7500 rpm
* Transmission: S9B
I believe your engine is the same as a USDM GS-R. If you're having trouble after installing an axle, make sure that you fit the axle in all the way. If it's sticking out 1/2 way it might pop out of your transmission, or worse, make an annoying noise which you're probably hearing.

I have a 90 hatchback and have had a problem with the "check engine light", finally after many mechanics it turned out to be the distributer. This was a problem that was not resolved until the bearings in the distributer were finally shot. I would usually get this light when the engine was warm, but it also occurred in the winter.
I was sure it was the butterfly valve on the front end of the intake ( I have a FI engine) because I could tweak this valve and the light would reset. But once warm or run for a longer than normal time it seemed to come back on.
anyways, have them run a test on the distributer, also have them pull the codes. The distributer is pricey about $250 for a OEM. Good luck if not fixed already
#51 of 114 mint 1992 GSR cracked cylinder
Apr 02, 2008 (11:13 am)
We bought this 1992 mint condition GSR in Dec 07. Only had 50k miles. Drove perfectly for 1 month. Then it would not start. Taken to dealer determined after many checks that it was a blown head gasket. Now they tell us that one of the cylinders is cracked and that the engine is shot.
The dealer said they cannot find a engine to get replacement parts.
My questions are these;
1) Does anyone know of a web site that has alot of Acura parts available?
2) Can a LS engine be put into a GSR, will the tranny work?
3) Does anyone know of a machine shop that could manufacture the cylinder?
4) Any known good Acura rebuilders in the NE
I really want to keep this one. The body and interior is truly in mint condition. Please help.
#52 of 114 advice on swappin out dead engine.
May 24, 2008 (11:37 pm)
I currently own a 91 Acura Integra LS, found out one of my head cylinder is dead. My in law suggested I should just buy a new head and block. But, my uncle said if I was to do that why don't I buy a new engine to swap in so it will actually worth the time and money that I'm welling to put into the car. I was planning on putting in a H22 but it would take too much conversion. So I'm thinking about putting in a JDM B16 or B18 but don't know which. Any suggestions on which one to pick?

Good Guess, but the B18C4, and all B18 motors only come from Integras jdm and usdm. U might be thinking of the B16a which again came from the 89-91 integra( first DOHC VTEC motor by honda) and was later inharated by the civic in 92. No civic has ever came with a b18; a1/a/b/c/ in any country , which is y its the favoured motor to honda fans, 197hp on a 1.8l still gets germans scratching there heads!!!!!

since u have the same car as me i will tell u to go with the motor that needs the least mods for the swap. Go with the b16a which is found in the 89-91 integra xsi, its exact fit to your ls and even uses the same mounts, only thing u need is b16a motor ,any b series tranny(vtec), and obd0 cpu

#57 of 114 To buy or not to buy...
Aug 15, 2007 (8:45 am)
I have always liked my friends GSR and a guy I work with has one he is selling. A 2000 GS-R for 5500. The only issue I have is that the car has 138k miles on it. I know the car is worth the money, but I am kind of leary about the miles. Can anyone help me with how long the VTEC engines last mileage-wise and what expenses I might take on given the cars age and miles??? Thanks in advance for any advice you all can give.
