Exactly correct. But saleen is to ford as mugen is to honda. Spoon and jun though do a lot of honda stuff so they are the next if not better thing....because they tend to go a bit more wild/race. But mugen was started by soichiros son. - mrmyz91 F-body said:What exactly is the Spoon Integra? Is is like a Saleen mustang or Lingenfelter chevy?
Just curious. Seen the term used before but I have very little knowledge of import tuners.

Since its establishment in 1973, Mugen has nourished intimate relations with Honda. Because it forms the nucleus of Honda’s car racing efforts many motorsports fans think Mugen is a Honda affiliate. Another factor in the confusion is that founder and President Hirotoshi Honda is the son of the late Soichiro Honda, founder of the Honda Motor Company. But Mugen is an independent firm and does not depend fully on Honda. There is currently no capital relationship between the two, and Mugen's racing engines and racing carts are sold under the Mugen brand. The reason Mugen is only bases its vehicle development and racing activities on Honda cars in a category in which participants compete in remodeling such market products as touring cars and GTs is "a result of a consideration of the best advantages in terms of business." Thus, the “wet” factor - a relationship of mutual trust and an accumulation of technology cultivated through many years of cooperation - has acted heavily on the “dry” judgment criteria - racing results. We could say that Mugen is an engine constructor and a racing team that specializes in Honda.
