    I've got a B18b motor and i am deciding on the ls/vtec or Turboing my car. I've done most of my research on the topic and the deciding factor for me is going to be fuel economy which application runs more efficent on fuel becuase i'm used to getting 20 miles per gallon in the city and i'd like to stay as close to it as possiable and still have a fast car.

    keep it stock or get a D15 if you are worried about gas miles!

    20 mpg out of a B18B!?!?!? What have you done to that thing???? My B18A got 28-29 city and 34-35 highway before the head swap. The only reason the economy went down after the head swap was my fp was too high.
