    same thing. but you get higher compression with a GSR head.

    Not a ridiculous amount more but it would result in a horsepower increase.

    The answer here really depends on what kind of a build you're doing. If you just want to slap on a stock head and go, then the GS-R head is probably your best bet. If you're going be rebuilding the head with after-market parts, then it doesn't really matter, just buy whatever head you can get for cheapest...

    on a stock head swap, you will only get about a .2 compression bump.
