    I'm going to get an engine swap and boost it with a small turbo(14g) and will be running like 10psi at the most...... I would like to know what the best engine for that kind of boost would be?
    looking to spend no more than $5500 :blink:

    ls turbo is the best losts of torque on power always can be added
    f-max is the best set up

    5500 complete motor + turbo, ls is really the only option. anythign else, you will break the budget.

    but trust, its not a bad swap- see sig :)

    if you get a 96-00 LS motor, it will drop right in with a couple easy mount changes.

    click:
    Swap -> 6th gen

    GSR ultimate power production
    B16 budget high revs
    LS budget torque

    The B16 and GSR would require a decent tune to make good power reliably

    LS can be tuned by a retard and last forever

    all of the motors can make around 300whp on 93 octane with engine management and tuning. expect to make about 220-250 on FMU and BS tuning.

    I got a 96 spec JDM B18C type-r engine in a civic i was thinking of boosting it.

    i know my engine is running at 10.8 compression... I will need to change
    the pistons.. maybe 9:0.1 JE pistons?

    what else should I look into? has anybody boosted a type-r?

    thanks
