Acura Integra Sedan

From Acura press: The third-generation 1994 Acura Integra is an all-new automobile redesigned from the ground up. It features a number of technological innovations that enhance performance and handling, and provide high levels of safety, durability, efficiency, comfort and ride quality.The Integra is available as a Sports Coupe or Sports Sedan, and each body style comes in three trim levels --RS, LS and GS-R.

For the first time the performance-oriented GS-R is available in a Sports Sedan body style, something that will broaden its appeal to sports oriented drivers who need the practicality of a 4-door configuration.

The Integra has evolved and matured in its three generations. The latest edition is the most highly refined, and offers a comprehensive list of standard luxury, comfort and safety features. It is the only car in its category, for instance, that features a standard driver's and front passenger's air bag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) in all models. Additionally, features such as a power antenna, lumbar adjustment for the driver's seat, power windows and door mirrors and an AM/FM stereo/cassette music system are now standard in all models. The fun-to-drive aspects of the Integra have been equally enhanced by a newly designed double-wishbone suspension system, a more precise power steering system, and increased horsepower and torque in all models.

The 1994 Integra features two distinct engines. The RS and LS models offer an all-aluminum, 1834 cc, 4-cylinder engine with DOHC and 4 valves per cylinder. This engine, while similar to the engine of the 1993 Integra, has undergone a number of refinements to improve reliability and durability, improve efficiency and provide smoother power delivery. Among these changes are the use of an axial-flow air cleaner, which reduces restriction 20%, and an eight-degree change in the angle of the fuel injectors, for improved driveability and engine response. The 1994 RS/LS engine produces 142 horsepower at 6300 rpm, and 127 lbs-ft of torque at 5200 rpm.

The GS-R model features an all-new engine that shares virtually no components with the 1993 Integra GS-R engine. The 1797 cc engine is equipped with the Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system pioneered in the Acura NSX. It also features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI), a dual-stage intake system, a knock sensor, a crankshaft reinforcing bridge, oil jet piston cooling and a number of other innovations to improve reliability and durability, and to provide smoother operation. All this adds up to 170 horsepower at 7600 rpm and 128 lbs-ft of torque at 6200 rpm. These impressive figures give it one of the highest specific output of any normally aspirated engine sold in the U.S., and its relatively long stroke and high redline give it the highest piston speed of any automobile engine in the world, even faster than the latest Formula One engines.
