    because from wut ive read the itr would be better platform to start with.. better internals and better head( which is pretty much a ported and polished b16 head)

    with the money you will be spending on the ITR engine you could build the living hell out of the GSR engine... putting you WELL beyond the level of a stock ITR

    what are your goals / plans for this car??
