Sickest Acura on the Planet

November 6th, 2018

No, you have not flipped your wig! This is a left-hand drive, JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) Acura Integra that has been radically modified aesthetically and mechanically. The color is Porsche Orange but the attitude is cutting edge.

Under the hood is a 2.4-liter (K24) bottom-end (from a Honda Element) with a K20R cylinder head. It has a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger with a Golden Eagle intake manifold. Every electrical connector and wiring harness on this car is redone with heavy-duty in mind. Car owner, Ryan Basserri is the owner of Rywire so, innovative wiring is his stock in trade and it is on display throughout the car.

An XRP enhanced custom fuel supply setup, with Bosch pumps, keeps the go-go juice flowing and MoTec controllers keep all the ducks in a row. Of course, all the harnesses are custom and resemble those of a tank. This car is built to last.

Even the transmission is unconventional. It is pneumatically shifted with electronically controlled paddle shifters. If you want space-age technology; this Acura has it.
