    Up for grabs is a B18C1 block with a jdm b16a head and a gsr tranny. I was planning on putting it in my delsol but have decided to sell it to get some money. It has a brand new, all OEM Honda parts, water pump, oil pump, timing belt, teinsioner, Head Gasket, and ARP head studs. I am asking 2900 for it including the gsr tranny.

    That's a steal, If I had 2900 bucks, I would buy it now, even though I have nothing to put it in.

    dude, thats an LS block, not a GSR block
    .. GSR swaps go for $3k+ .. IMO.. this is better than a GSR swap

    ok dude look this is no poor mans type r cause it doesnt have itr or ctr pistons ok. so its just a gsr with a b16 head no gsr cams no itr cams. so whats the point it looses compression now its at like 9:8 instead of it being a real poormans type r having a 10:8-11+ compression. so its worth less then a gsr swap.

    you sir are correct. a poor mans type r consist of: b18c (gsr) block, itr or ctr pistons, b16 head, gsr itr or ctr cams, itr intake mani and throttle body. however your compression ratio that you gave was inaccurate, i know this because mine is currently at 12.3:1

    Hmmm... I didn't know a poor man's type-r had pistons. Kinda defeats the purpose of "poor man". Gsr block with ctr pistons and itr cams will make more power than a stock itr. From my understanding, it was a b18c1 block with a b16 head, stock gsr pistons and stock b16 cams. But I guess it could vary from person to person. ;]

    then that would defeat the purpose cause u loose compression points adding the b16 head and keeping the gsr pistons

    so two tenths of compression makes a serious difference? I think not.

    My compression with a b16a head (un-milled) will be 12.4:1. With a gsr head (un-milled) would be 12.6:1. As long as the block was never decked those are the numbers -- for MY engine with ctr pistons on stock rods.

    stock p75 pistons and b16 head with b16 cams would actually lower your compression and take away hp, pushing it further away from a type r.
