Honda Integra DC5

DC5I ended up behind a lovely Honda Integra DC5 on a dual carriageway the other day which was shifting, so decided to try keeping up with it (at a distance) to see how it compared. The ‘Teg sounded fantastic and was clearly well maintained as you could see the shiny blue and silver suspension components underneath the back of the car. Through the gears the Evo was quicker and gained fairly easily but not as quick as I would have liked.

The JDM Integras usually have around 220bhp so unless this was modded, the Evo must be down on power. Obviously transmission losses account for a lot on a 4WD car, but I have a niggling feeling that the car should be making more power…
