'90 Acura Integra - Eibach Honda Meet 2016 Spotlight

Dustin McQueary takes his DA Integra to new levels after his '14 feature in Honda Tuning

Jun 8, 2016

Stepping foot into a massive event like the '16 Eibach Honda Meet, you're guaranteed to see a lot of familiar faces and folks who've been in the industry for years, if not decades. Besides the cool cars, catching up with old homies is one of the reasons we go to things like Eibach, Wekfest, Spocom and other events every year. But we also get a bit excited, sometimes even inspired, when we meet enthusiasts who are a little bit newer to the scene, yet share the same passion as us from back in the day — one such individual is Dustin McQueary from Northern California.

Dustin is by no means completely new to the game; however, compared to most of the OGs who've been in the scene from the '90s and early-'00s, he's just getting started! For someone who's still in his early 20s and got into cars as a freshman in high school, it was refreshing to see that he didn't get into whatever ride was hot at the time. Instead, he found love in a '90 Acura Integra, and he built it so well that it received worldwide recognition after its '14 feature in Honda Tuning.

We should note, Dustin's Integra was far from a rich kid's project car. His build took four years of hard work, not to mention he survived a severe illness that almost made him stop the project. He was also on a tight student's budget; however, he learned how to wrench and even fabricate using his Integra as a subject to cut costs and develop his skills. The result? Perhaps one of the cleanest DA builds we've seen within the last five years.

When it was featured in Honda Tuning, the Integra ticked all of the right boxes. For example, a Type-R/B18C swap, Rywire engine harness, semi-shaved bay, OE Jasper Green repaint, Ground Control/Koni suspension, and Sprint Hart wheels. Since catching up with him at Eibach, he's kept the project going with a slew of new updates. Under the hood, he's added A-Sport individual throttle bodies, Spoon cams with Golden Eagle cam gears, and Hasport mounts. Outside you'll notice he's swapped the Sprint Harts for 15x6.5-inch SSR EX-C mesh wheels, as well as throwing on a JDP carbon-fiber lip to the front. The rather stock interior from '14 has been replaced with Bride Brix II chairs with Takata harnesses, a Cusco six-point cage, and a custom trunk floor.

Seeing a guy like Dustin who's still relatively young compared to most original DA Integra builders (who are all probably in their 30s and 40s) is a breath of fresh air. Dustin's also kept his fabricating skills going by creating a custom radio flyer from scratch that he brought to Eibach Meet.

Dustin, keep up the good work, bro — we can't wait to see what you come up with next!
