    but the b16 is only $3300 and the GSR is almost $4000.

    another point is why not go for the h22 instead is cheaper it only cost $2300.

    why so many guys just keep telling me not to go for h22?? whats worng with it?

    well its hard to put in the car the springs needs to be upgraded along with the brakes, but you dont have to. you cant have ac or power sterring unless you buy a fabed mount for those, and the b series is more reliable

    so u mean that i need the titanium valves and springs?? what u mean with relible?? im gonna get the TEIN schocks and spring next month... so i guess that if i swap the h22a the suspension wont be a problem with the TEIN aplications in it right??
