    Default 2000 Integra Type R - My Story

    Hello guys,

    Went with Sugz on here to inspect a DC2R with him over the weekend. I ended up buying one of the DC2R on the weekend haha.

    It's a late build 2000 model. Was a bit skeptical with the red recaros in a 2000 model, however my only guess is they stated the red recaro in nighthawk black integra from here.

    The car was bought cheap as it isn't perfect.

    Cons:
    -247,000 km
    -Bit of paint missing on the front bumper
    -Car has had a very light tap with another car recently which resulted in a couple dents and some scratches. I'm confident these will polish out leaving 2-3 scratches.
    -slow/sticky driver side window
    -heavily worn steering wheel. Guess in line with the kilometres
    -lame short ram intake
    -aftermarket sound system
    -slippage of clutch
    -only one key provided
    -aftermarket hid kit faulty
    -peeling stock Center mirror

    Pros:
    -original engine & gearbox
    -not on revs
    -full log book service history
    -optional side skirts & rear pods
    -doesn't look like he car has really been modified
    -linked the ownership of the car back to Chris on here (l3v1ndi)
    -engine looks pretty clean
    -RX pedals l
    - immaculate rear seat

    Plans for the car:
    -Change all fluids asap - Completed Via Top One Auto 14/10/2017
    -Look to change rotors and pads for something track worthy along with some fresh lines and rebuilding of the calipers
    -oem/Mugen bushing replacement
    -new cmc, and possibly Csc/bmc - Changed to brand new OEM CMC and CSC 14/10/2017
    -new oem clutch and light flywheel - Changed to brand new Exedy Stage 2 clutch kit and Exedy 4.1kg lightened flywheel with brand new OEM items 14/10/2017
    -16" oem dc2r wheels - obtained 10/10/2017. Will look to refurbish if not sold
    -jdm storage compartment (where steering column is) - obtained and installed 14/10/2017
    -reinstall stock airbox with new filter - installed 29/09/2017
    -remove aftermarket sound system and install single din - all removed, and single din reinstalled 01/10/2017
    -detail the car
    -new oem floormats
    -get second genuine key cut - obtained non genuine key from Bensons Locksmiths 01/10/2017
    -new boot struts
    -go back to stock headlight bulbs - obtained new oem globes 26/09/2017
    -clear indicators (currently usdm)
    -baffled sump - installed sump with JDMyard weld in baffle plate via Top One Auto
    -install new driver side regulator if regrease doesn't fix it

    So yeah the car is really just going to be a factory standard car. I've watched all the dc2r review vids on YouTube, and it's amazing how Honda put so much work into tuning the dc2r back in the 90's. The car feels amazing to drive for a stock car, and I'm surprised how tight the chassis is even with 247k's on it.

    The dc2r looks to be a great daily, and I can't wait to restore it to its best condition without going too overboard.

    Pics to come

    Good choice247ks doesn't mean nothing if it's serviced religiously

    Well done mate, good luck and get some photos up!

    Must say I was similar affected with all the recent renewed interest in the OG ITR due to the new CTR launch. All these videos just made me realise how much I needed one back in my life and also went out and bought a fixer upper.

    I was actually inspecting this car for my mate. However his heart was set on another one. I was pretty impressed with the car, so I ended up buying it lol. DC2R is a pretty sweet car in standard form, even with the massive kilometres!

    Good to bring an ex-CITR car back home!



    Heres an engine bay pic, the engine looks pretty clean from a quick look-in. Can see some fluid residue on both the BMC and CMC reservoir. I'll clean them up, and monitor them for continual leaks. I do plan on fitting a new CMC and CSC when I change the clutch.

    So far in terms of refreshing the car, I took a "spark plug" cover bolt from my CRV and put one on there, as well as the bonnet rod's plastic holder too as this one has broken

    Here she is back home at mine. The clutch is slipping now more than I thought. I hoped I could prolong changing the clutch for awhile but any WOT just sees the clutch slipping. It drives fine as a daily, but eventually I want to visit RNP as I havent been there for awhile.
