    which is cheaper to build though do you think ?

    It would cost alot to turbo a b18 type R, do you know if you can turbo a type R with stock internals ?

    well, the C5 isnt the ideal motor for boost.. but neither is the b20/v .. if boost is what you want i'd go with a b18a/b or b16

    Couldn't agree with you more. Another thing is just think of price differences. I'm building an lsvtec right now and At the end I won't be anywhere near 5k of spending and I'll walk an ITR. But I have always loved the c5. it's the price that always gets me.

    well, buy an F1 then.. or you could stick a streetbike muffler on your car and it'll sound like an F1 car

    Not trying to be an asshole, but do some research before you come asking questions. To have a motor that will rev to 8k SAFELY, you will have to build the motor to withstand 8k RPM's. Just because you slap a B16 head on an LS block doesn't mean it will rev to 8k reliably. Just like my LS, I could buy a chip off egay that will allow my car to redline at 8,500 RPM's. CAN it do it? Yes. Is it safe? Hell no. It'd probably come apart after doing that a few times.

    I might show my ignorance here but...

    REALLY???:huh: That would be one hell of a tune.
    If you want something that revs and you don't have to do anything to it, get a Type-R and have fun. For your sake, do some research before you put a wrench to any engine you buy.
