I'm not sure what you are looking for, but here is a link with some specs for you. The type R you are interested in is a N/A motor with high sompression, the cams in that motor are highly sought after as well as the head/motor in general. It has the "V-Tec" head you hear people talk about. These motors are impressive, with polished this and that and upgraded sleeves, rods, pistons, injectors, cams, Fuel pump, intake, turbo, valve springs/retainers, Quaiffe LSD these things can rev up around 9,000-10,000 RPM's. Those RPM's combined with a T3/T4 hybrid Turbo can produce 400WHP as a daily driver good for aover 50,000 miles. I had several quotes put together in the Chicagoland area and a build of this kind goes for arounf 10 grand. I decided to build my own and ended up with roughly 6 grand into although the specs varied and I picked up parts from swap meets and Ebay used. Hope this sheds a little light on the subject. I am now a N/A BMW guy, but not for Integra is outta here and if all goes well we will be pushing 355 at the wheels this summer compliments of Dinan!
