    No you can swap the motor, but it will just be a b18c R in a gsr body.

    yes, but why? by the time you time you buy pistons, rings, rods, an entire type r head and intake manny ecu and trans the only thing you have left is the gsr block- why bother? you may as well buy a type r swap

    you can take every part from an ITR and put it in a GSR and its still wont be the same thing as an ITR

    why are you so bent on building an ITR engine out of a GRS engine ... there is better shit out there

    A GSR motor with all Type R parts = GSR with all Type R parts.

    Just like a USDM EH2 with all ITR parts = a USDM EH2 with all ITR parts.

    yep

    turning a gsr into a type r will not be worth your time or money. boost the gsr and you will beat a type r in a straight line. the type r will take you in the turns if you are running a stock suspension. btw- this thread sucks

    Be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, it would be, a good daily driver.

    A GSR is a good daily driver, if you can't afford an R, you can't afford an R, no biggy. I can't afford a Lamborghini, but that doesn't mean I am going to buy a Fiero, and turn it into one.

    just stick with the gsr, it's a good platform to build up from.
