Simple, Clean, Proper But Fast

This Honda Integra Type R which is owned by Kevin Lee isn’t your typical Type R, this is the JDM version which is rarer. In fact, there are less than 10 of them in Indonesia making it really special.

Kevin’s love of modification has started since the year 2007, he was just 17 back in the day. Until now, his favorite style is JDM Street Racing. Hence the simple modification, JDM wheels, lowering kit, and tuner bodykit. In general, his style is "Simple, Clean, Proper But Fast!"

He puts a lot of attention to details on to his DC5 Integra. It took him around 2 years to gather all the parts and set this car to this state right now. For the rarer parts like the Recaro seats, the door trim, and the red Type R edition carpet, he hunted it all to Malaysia and Japan. Kevin stated that, “Red symbolizes racing.”

His DC5 is not an all show no go type of car. The camshafts, pistons, connecting rods, intake, and throttle body have been replaced. The engine got a port and polish treatment. And to control it all up, a Haltech ECU has replaced the original ECU.

After all that, the body is next by repainting the car with a super deep black colour, replacing the original night hawk black that has faded by time.

The wheels? Kevin chose the Accelera 651 Sport combined with a 17x8 Advan RG2. This 225/45 R17 semi slick tire has a speed index of W 168 mph and capable of holding 1,356 lbs of weight.

The Accelera 651 Sport is a sport tire with excellent grip and traction. The unique tread design improves handling and stability during high speed driving and provides excellent water dispersion for wet road condition.

No wonder this tire has been used by some of the most professional drivers like Akbar Rais and Steve ‘Baggsy’ Biagioni for their drift cars.

Since this semi slick tire is an all season tire, dailying it won’t be a problem at all. This tire will even provide ultra high performance on your passenger car.
