    The GSR and b16 heads will flow roughly about the same, and will out perform a b18a/b head by a long shot.

    IMO find a b16a head, it should be cheaper and easier to find than a GSR head, and if you can afford it do a PnP on it.

    A b16a head is usually cheaper to purchase than a gsr head from what I've seen of HT parts for sale threads, and flow charts that I've seen have had negligable differences between the two.

    A GSR head will have slightly higher compression which will net a slight power gain but not by much.
