This is NOT true. The Legend has always had a V-6. In fact, the Accord uses
the V-6 from the first generation Legend. The Integra is based on the Civic
platform and therefore, probably isn't designed to accomodate a V-6. The
competition for the Integra (Prelude, Celica, 240SX, Diamond-Star Twins)
typically do not have V-6 engines except the Probe/MX-6.
