    I just read a post someplace and it talked about swapping a CTR head onto a GSR. I'm getting a GSR soon and i've already made some decisions on which way to go. Could anybody tell my why this swap (CTR head on a GSR) would be a good idea. i havent' heard a lot about it. I also read that swapping in CTR heads would be a good move. Some opinon and advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    the CTR head on a GSR will lower your compression

    the CTR head flows better than a GSR head thanks to the mild PnP from the factory

    the CTR has more agressive cams


    get CTR cams and valvetrain
    get a PnP on your GSR head

    done

    Ya see, I was thinking of getting Toda cams.. should I go with the CTR cams instead? Where (websites) can i go to buy the valvetrain? I don't necessarily want to lower my compression though. The CTR pistons will bump it from 10 somethin' to 12.487. So would i just be wasting my time to get the CTR head?

    yes getting the CTR head will be a waste

    if you are already looking at Toda then dont bother with CTR anything

    get Toda Cams, Toda pistons, Toda valvetrain

    Would you happen to know how much the Toda pistons would raise the compression ratio to? And should I bother getting some rods or anything?

    bore out that gsr manifold too unless you have the proper ecu for the second butterfly things in the gsr manifold.
