    i have a 92 GSR with a jdm b16a, i also have the blown B17 and was wondering if i put the cams in the b16 if it would give it more power or not? Or if anything from the b17 can go on the b16 to make it faster?

    the real difference between the b16 and b17 is the crank and rods. they use the same block pretty much as well as the head casting being the same as well.

    good luck on your rebuild. if the car started life as a 92-93 GSR rebuild the B17 and stuff it back in there.
