In 1995 Honda announced the release of the DC2 Integra Type R that featured enhanced driving performance. The Integra Type R is powered by the B18C 1.8-litre DOHC VTEC engine, specifically developed for the Integra Type R, and for high-revving fun and performance. Standard equipment includes a Helical LSD, performance rods, stiffer suspension, a front lip spoiler, a rear spoiler, alloy wheels, a leather wrapped MOMO steering wheel, recaro seats, and a titanium shift knob.
In 1998 the DC2 saw some minor changes. To enable the higher torque at low and mid rpm levels, exhaust performance was improved by employing the equal-length 4-in-1 style exhaust manifold also a new intake camshaft was installed. Suspension and brakes had also been improved to maximize performance and handling. In addition to an increased tyre size, the ’98 spec adopted Honda EK9 front disk brakes and rear disk brakes, newly designed 5-hole 16-inch alloy wheels with a 5 x 114 bolt pattern, they also completely retuned suspension, SRS airbag-compatible steering wheel designed by MOMO, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights.
