Are the USDM Integra type R pistons (year 2001 I looked under I think) and camshafts, avail from www.acuraautomotiveparts.org, comparable to CTR pistons and cams; how far off are they? type-R’s make good power and torque, no? the price is good here, $37 / piston+ $27 / ringset and $300 a pop for camshafts, new.
Anyone have a source for looking up actual Honda part numbers, not bullshit, secondary numbers…the honda dealer is closer to me by a stretch than acura, and they are too lazy to get part numbers cross-referenced…
example: the valve cover gasket is 12341-PR3-000, but honda dealers (not all hopefully?) can’t tell you if that will work on your acura…of course it does, but pain in ass to call acura, get part number, give to honda.
