    Just learning but why do you think the b16b (ek9 type r engine?) is overrated? Do you think that the gsr engine is better than the b16b? Again, just learning:D .

    b16b is just to expensive buy a b16 and put cams a intake manifold and header on it and make just as much power with a good tune

    this is true, but b16b vs b18 type r, the b16b will win, both in stock trim

    So displacement doesn't really make any difference here?
