    the GSR head will give you about a .2 raise in compression, slighty better mid range due to it's design, and a little better top end because the cams are a bit more aggressive. the down side is the intake manifold the GSR uses. if your gonna swap heads, i'd also get the skunk2 intake manifold as well. IMO, to save a little cash and time, just keep the b16 head, get a type r intake manifold and a set of GSR cams or type r if you want.

    if you have a b16 head already, don't bother.
