Is a 1988 Acura Integra 4dr LS with a DOHC B18 that has 225,000 miles
worth $750? I drove it and everything, it's strong and pretty fast to
be stock and to be that old. The body is in good condition, as well as
the interior. has tinted windows and 16 rims. The only thing wrong
with it is the paint job and an exhaust leak. Is $750 a good deal for
this car, are Acura's good on high mileage, and Can they be driven hard
with that many miles and be able to with stand? Are these cars good on
It's been a long time since my driving consisted of mostly city. When it
did, I was around 26mpg.
From May 30 to July 29 of this year, my '91 Integra consumed 101.33 gallons
and travelled 3,050.5 miles. That's 30.1 mpg. And that was with nearly
270,000 miles on the clock. Oil consumption is at usual summer levels of
about 1,600 miles per quart.
My driving is about 90% highway, most of that at off-peak hours, speeds
around 65-85 mph.
Frankly, I find it astonishing that a modern engine could return such good
numbers even with elevated mileage. My dad's '50s and '60s cars didn't last
half as long before consuming prodigious amounts of fuel and oil.
I doubt it,don't Hondas use a D-series motor?
and different B-series motors use different manifolds.
"cold air intake" (CAI) does not include a short ram intake;short rams
still use hot under-hood air.
CAIs usually are much longer and extend through a fender or to the grille
area for a source of colder outside air.
They are pretty much model specific for that reason.
