    What would be better to get out of the two, overall? what one has more potential stock (turbo wise)? or would they be almost even? i know the b18 makes about 5hp more. my bro wants to know. Thanks

    B18. Little stronger motor, and more torque. And of course, a little more displacement is always nice.

    for a cheap build, probably the zc just because you wouldn't have to change anything, but there is more B series after market support but you would have to change a few things. it really depends on how much you want to spend and what your power goals are. I doubt you plan on building a 500 hp monster but who knows. like I said it really comes down to how much you want to spend

    the LS all day, i had a zc and aftermarket is horrible for them, they are very few people who make parts for it so the prices are high...it's basically a glorified sohc with like 5 more hp

    yeah the zc is more of something if you just want to slap a small turbo on it, get it tuned and call it a day. you can think of it as a lazy man's ls, it's a DOHC d series
