I was a JAP guy/tuner head.. back in Australia. Wasn't a fan of the V8 crowd preferred VTEC and Turbo's and what not lol.

(my second car) since i got my license.
Honda Integra DA9 1990/91.
It was stock as a rock when i first purchased it. After a lot of time.. and experimentation (i was 17 lol).
Heres some old pics:

It had a big ass sound system, i'm talking..
20 Speakers.. (incl. Exterior speakers), 4 Subs, All speakers component minus the 2 marine 6x9's. It was running like 3-4 amps at once atleast 2500WRMS or so..

And it's last state before i sold it: (B18CR Motor and Gearbox here..)

Bought for (AUD) $2k
Sold for $3k after all those mods.. (motor and gearbox change set me back $3500) lol.

It was a good first "modify worthy" car
