I'm putting my 2000 Acura Integra GSR 2dr on the testing waters of being for sale. The car is pretty much flawless and only has 26k miles. It can be viewed in the link in my sig. My asking price is $15,500 and all mods are included. I know I could part it out and get more but I simply don't have time. Either I sell this car as is or I take it to Hawaii with me. Just a side note- the nitrous kit is physically installed but I've never had a bottle hooked up so the lines have never been checked for leakage and the computer box has never been programmed. Car has never been run on the nitrous and a dealer dynamic compression test showed 175 on all cylinders.
-----MARK-----

EDIT: please not that is not a compression number but rather a dynamic compression. Dynamic compression on a solid stock GSR is 175. A standard compression test on the car done by myself reads 240 across the board.

Since you're testing the waters and not actually selling, I can tell you this....175 is extremely low.

The price is definitely very attractive but the compression numbers would make one worry I would think...I would try to sell it on autotrader.com since the average consumer wouldn't be smart enough to ask about compression tests...

um- for a dynamic compression test 175 is excellent. DYNAMIC COMPRESSIoN. The dealership did it- it is some sort of average on the compression on a single stroke... perhaps MD or someone else could elaborate? According to my Honda Performance Builders book that is as good as it gets on a stock engine. The Compression numbers I got off my gauge were 240 across the board... but the dynamic compression is 175.

edit: I'm selling b/c I might be moving to Hawaii in March. If I go it costs $2k to ship the car- if I can sell the car for $15k I'd rather just do that and start over again with an S2000 or something.

Yeah when you dont hold the throttle open when doing a comp test itll read like 1xxetc. but with the throttle open the comp test reads 2xx. That's really all that is.

is that what it is? The mechanic who tested explained it as some sort of average pressure the cylinder creates in a stroke and that is why it is lower than the number than everyone expected. Maybe he just used the word dynamic to make it look like he did more work or something. Either way all I know for sure is 175 is very good. I posted those numbers because I have papers showing the test was done unlike my regular compression test I did myself.
