    ok here is the deal, I have finally decided to go ahead and build my b18c bottom and top, top will be, port and polish, new stainless valves, dual springs and titanium retainers, and stock cams. Bottom end I will get Eagle H Beam Rods and Type R Pistons ,and crank polished, balanced and knife edged I am wanting to run 12-15psi daily on a T3/T4 turbo with a hondata s200, should this build up be enough to do so, please advise Any help or suggestions will be great.

    TypeR pistons are eaxactly what you dont want with boost. Cast and high compression. Not sure if I would go knife edge crank on a boost app either. Titainum retaiors suck when it comes to lifespan. They end up "bending" after 30k miles or so. Go with chromoly.

    Also, For boost, you want to spend more attention to the bottom end then the head. Sleaves would be nice.

    much better! that's a fair price, but lately... everybody has been pumping benson's sleeves. so you might want to look into that. might wanna up your comp. a 'lil bit too if you have a decent tuner. tuning for 15psi on just about any t3/t4 should be fine.

    10:1 is perfect. try to get there, and get it tuned with a hondata.
