Anyone seen an ITR at a dealership lately that they could give me the name of? My GS-R got rear ended and it is totalled.. I'm looking into new cars and would like to stick with an Integra if I can help it. Also A clean black GS-R might do as well. Prefferably close to orlando. If I can't find either of those for a decent price I might have to get an STI or WRX or S2K But I would perfer to stick with the teg as this is my third one and anything else just feels weird and not myself. So if anyone knows where I might be able to find either of those cars please let me know.

I'm planning on selling the motor if I cant find another GSR. I want to keep it if I can find a gsr or ITR to buildup for turbo. My mobility at the moment is just limited because I have no car that I can drive to any dealers to look.

I have only seen one ITR at a dealership and really what are you gonna trade up to? Can you even trade up from an ITR?
The GSR is hands down going to be a better bet.

...I say save your money, keep the car, get a clean LS and do a GS-R swap. reason being: cheaper insurance and cheaper car; but with GS-R benefits (basically Vtec, a better tranny, and some stronger engine internals)...

Hey, i work at Crown Acura in Clearwater. Which is somewhat close to Tampa. We got a dealer trade last week for a Black 2001 GS-R that i believe has 28k miles on it. It's going to be traded to another dealer this week, if you want, i can find out for you where it will be headed.

Btw, the dealership i work for bought the gs-r. It's a black 2001 with almost 29k miles. It's a lease turn in and is 100% stock. I drove it today to our detail center and the car is being detailed and will most likely be on the lot tomorrow. So if your intrested send me a pm, i'm not 100% sure but i belive they are going to ask about 13,400 for the car. Which of course is overpriced and can always be brought down. Just keeping you up to date.

btw: The car runs fine and there didn't seem to be any problems. Of course our mechanics at the store will be doing a safety check and we will have paint/touchup guys to remove any minor dents/scratches on the car. Which i didn't really see any, but i didn't look too hard. I'm not a salesman so i really don't have anything to gain by selling this car to you :) just thought you might be interested.

That would be the way to go. ^^^^^^^^If you even find a type R at a dealer who knows what is wrong with it. Someone just wanting to get rid of a type R at a dealer is usually trying to get rid of a problem they don't want to deal with.

No, LS internals are not stronger. you might be able to use the psitons and rods for a light turbo application but i'm not sure how long that would last....

I agree! other possible reasons for seeing an ITR at a dealership are seizures, repossesions, etc. and trade-ins for something twice as better and 5 times faster(rarely)....

So yea, if any of you guys are intrested in that black GS-R. You can call Crown Acura @ (727) 507-8866. I suggest you talk to John Pearson, since i think he's the nicest salesman. You can tell him i sent ya :)

I would be interested but the guy who rear ended my car backed out of paying me so now I have to sue him(he didnt have ins)
So I guess this idea will have to wait for a bit, thanks for any and all help.
