    Well, I'm working on puchasing a bunck of stuff for a build up on another block, and am wondering what the going price is on a complete JDM B18C bottom end is, any help would be appreciated.

    you're going to be hardpressed to find a JDM shortblock.

    hell, you might make a profit off buying a swap, and parting out the head, tranny, dizzy, and so on.... and keeping the block.

    Wait...do you want just a block or the whole bottom end... which to me includes the crank pistons rods, etc..??

    You'd be better fitted to trying to find a UDM Type R motor, it's only 5 hp difference.

    I thought the USDM Type R was a GSR block with higher compression pistons and a high flowing B16 head?

    the b18c has a taller deck, by 7mm, i think...

    to allow for the longer stroke

    I don't understand this post...

    but I never said the b16a block = b18c...I said I thought the ITR block was the same as the GSR block, only difference was the ITR has a b16 head on it.

    So the ITR B18c is 7 mm taller than the GSR block?
