Now that the new Acura Integra is making its way into the public, people are becoming curious about the power of the car. To find out, AHC Garage has decided to put their Integra A-Spec Tech Package (the only Integra trim provided with a manual) on the dinosaur to see the numbers for themselves.
Acura produces 200 hp (203 PS / 149 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque in this car’s 1.5-liter turbo inline-four, much like the new Honda Civic Si, which implies that the two cars share a platform. But since the Civic has been shown to have more power than advertising, the question arises as to whether Integra does the same, especially since Akura claims that they have given the car a different engine tuning to differentiate it from Honda.

The first Dino run found 183 hp (186 PS / 136 kW) and 198 lb-ft (268 Nm) of torque, but they realized that the setup was not configured correctly, so they decided to repeat the test twice more. The first of these two runs shows Intigra 197 hp (200 PS / 147 kW) and 200 lb-ft (271 Nm) of torque, while the second has torque at 196 hp (199 PS / 146 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) wheels. On average, it produces approximately 196.5 hp (199.2 PS / 146.5 kW) and 197.5 lb-ft (267.8 Nm) of torque.
This is consistent with the Civic C’s independent Dino Run, which showed around 200 hp (203 PS / 149 kW) and 210 lb-ft (285 Nm) of torque at the wheel while factoring 10 percent drivetrain loss. It’s true that the Civic is a little more advanced than the Integrator, but it’s worth noting that each dino will have its own error margin, so different readings may be slightly different. That being said, the numbers are consistent enough to assume that both the Integra and the Civic Si are delivering almost as much power to the wheels as the Acura / Honda Crank advertises.
