For sale is a enthusiast owned and restored DC2 Integra Type R UK-Spec. This car is a unique gem and is not for the faint hearted or shy. I purchased it as it was in perfect mechanical condition with a recent forged rebuilt engine but red paintwork was faded (no rust or dents at all, just stood on the sun) so it was professionally resprayed by DVS Vehicle Refurbishment in genuine Honda Phoenix Yellow (very rare ITR colour).Now it is finished and I fancy moving on to another project.
About the car:
Mileage: 140k (20k on the newly rebuilt engine)
Mot: 14.11.2014 (No advisories)
Service history: Full with a recent engine rebuild
Recently rebuilt with forged parts B18C6 kept as close as possible to standard to keep the DC2 spirit. The car is on 140k but the engine has only done 20k (With proper break in and a professional job with a receipt for over £4000)

ACL Race Bearings
New Valve guides
Full OEM Gasket kit

Pulls great, no smoke rattles or oil/antifreeze loss. Basically it has a new engine with stronger internals (Could handle a lot more BHP if wanted)
I use it as a daily car and always warm up and cool down, only V Power petrol used and fluids checked weekly.
LSD S80 5 speed manual with a new clutch and flywheel fitted around 100k
The gearbox is smooth and precise with no crunching gears.
Huge brakes with recent pads etc with a perfectly balanced suspension (new OEM wheel bearings). Everything kept stock to keep that worlds best front wheel drive car feel.
This was the main thing I sorted with the car to bring it back to show standard. When I purchased the car the roof and the sides of the car were faded to near pink, so I decided to go for unique very rare from factory OEM Phoenix Yellow colour. It has been professionally done by DVS Vehicle Refurbishment in 2 weeks with both sides of the doors/bonnet/trunk and hinges resprayed. Under the bonnet the car is kept red with matching rocker cover. The floor in the boot is painted black with yellow strut braces (White R17 spare wheel included)
