Full Rundown on Rywire’s GT3 Integra

Integra Type R COOLED by CSF

One of the best experiences for CSF this year was being involved with Rywire‘s fully built Integra Type R that we debuted in the CSF booth at this past November’s SEMA show. It was our 6th SEMA show, and as we continue to grow, we knew that we had to up our game to stand out at the world’s largest automotive aftermarket trade show. We had no idea that the industry’s response to the car would be so tremendous, culminating in placing in a top ten finish in SEMA’s prestigous “Battle of the Builders” competiton

3 years ago I met Ryan Basseri, the owner of Rywire, at the CSF booth at the 2013 SEMA show. It was then where we decided to work together to make the Rywire X CSF “Ultimate Tuck Radiators”. Working with Ryan on having his car in the CSF booth for SEMA 2015 worked on so many levels, including coming full circle on a partnership that was formed at a previous SEMA show.


Rywire’s ITR build (Integra Type R from Japan) has set the bar for the import aftermarket build community, setting itself apart, by a huge gap, as agrugably the best import performance build in the entire world! That’s a bold statement to make, but anyone who has spent time oogling at this car will have a hard time disagreeing with me. Obviously the engine is the main draw and the intial focal point of the vehicle at 1st glance.


The engine bay of the #GT3Integra is the ultimate show stopper.

It’s only when you stop and really start looking closely at all the details of the entire car, that you realize this car is on a totally different level than anything that has ever been built before in terms of quality, craftsmanship, and technology. Only the finest aftermarket parts & F1-grade components have been used, and there are 1000’s of hours of custom work that has been completed by Ryan on his vehicle. (check out the junction box which took 3 full days to build!).
