In 1998 the beloved DC2 Integra Type R received what is known as the ’98 Spec R upgrade. This included a redesigned front bumper, 16-inch wheels wrapped in 215/45R16 Bridgestone Potenza rubber, different gear ratios and a 4-1 long tube header to help peak torque arrive quicker at 6200 rpm. The 1.8L B-Series engine was noted for its rev happy character, happily spinning up to redline over and over again. This was a very good thing, as Hondas VTEC system meant all the fun was only available in the higher echelons of the rpm limits. Considered one of Hondas finest engines the B18 produced over 100 hp per litre, a figure that was hard to beat at the time.
