    okay well i noe this is called a poormans itr, but i was wondering what head bolts could i use? would i use b16 head bolts or gsr bolts?

    or rather can i use b16 head bolts?

    or do i have to use gsr bolts?

    im asking this because ir ead something on imporbuilder that people strip the head bolt holes, due to shorter headbolts. . . im not sure about this, which is why im asking. . .

    thanks,
    kyle

    you use gsr head studs. and its only a "poor mans itr" if you add itr or ctr pistons. switching from a gsr to a b16 head lowers the c/r of the motor by .3, which hurts power. you need to regain that loss with higher c/r pistons or you end up gaining almost nothing.

    yep gsr bolts, I have this setup in my hatch, the only thing that the b16 head does better is it flows a little better than the gsr, performance is about the same as a stock gsr

    uhm... are you trying to stir up a shit storm? this can be argued like a mofo... some say the b16 head flows better than the GSR, some say the GSR head flows better than the B16
