Passenger molding was removed to keep from breaking it. It hits the fender when the door opens and gets bent. I need to shave the fender slightly but i haven't had time to do it.

I can't wait to drive the integra. The two days I have driven it I have had a blast.

Nice 'Teg! Those are nice little rockets.... Only issue is people steal them really..

And OHV, DOHC, etc it'* all on what car it'* in, and what the other aspects of the engine are...

I'd take the LS7 (ohv) over the BMW V10. Both have 500 HP, but the V10 is much larger, heavier, complicated, costs more to repair, and is more expensive.

Vtec is just variable timing, not a valvetrain design. It'* an on/off system, the GM VVT system actually modulates more, accross the entire rev range. It'* a good idea, but Vtech isn't going to make or break an engine. It merely makes it more drivable down low when you have a hotter cam then normal.
