    the plus of the h22 is the torque and the extra displacement but i beleave it´s a pain in the ass to install and costs a shitload to install correctly but the b18 motor drops in like it belongs in there! i´m no expert but i beleave the type r motor has the winnings in almost every aspect of the game:)

    I would honestly go with the Integra type r. I have driven a new vtec prelude and a Itr. The prelude has massive torque response as soon as vtec kicks on. But the Itr revs so much quicker (in association with the tranny). Plus the rpm band is much different between the two. I feel you will enjoy the type r much better.

    yeah but you could probably get an H22 + build a custom turbo kit for the price of a b18c type r

    this is a worthless thread,

    you didn't even say what you want to do with you shit, boost it up or N/A,

    what you whant to do,

    and then people can tell you what to do,

    I would go with a boosted H22 cuz it's cheaper, but at the same time a pain in the ass

    But if you doin' an all motor and you don't want to have the headeck and all this bullshit and you have the $$$$$$$$ and I mean $$$$$$$$ get a Type R

    I would go with a Type R jest for the "R" at the end.....haha

    it looks like you been here not for a long time, so jest stick around and you will se what people think,

    I would jest go with an LSVTEC or CRVTEC, or even a simple B18c1, and with a little effort you will bring this shit up to an Type R level,

    if you turbo a b18c1 it will have more potential than ls/vtec or b20/vtec turbo.

    I jest whant to know cuz I have B18c1 myself.....

    a friend of one of my good friends has a turbo b18c1 in his hatch putting out almost 700 whp.

    the guy with the hatch has a friend with the exact same setup as him but its ls/vtec turbo and puts out alittle over 500 whp.

    both are tuned. but I've noticed also from dyno charts that gsr's are better to turbo.

    i'm assuming since they have the same set up it would probably cost around the same price, I guess.

    I jest don't see a LS/vtec turbo, that's jest messed up....

    taking the low compresion out and puting a turbo in it,

    I would jest lo for LS turbo set up,

    I think is cheaper....

    and better/easier

    so save some money over both setups and BUILD YOUR B18B
    that engine has LOTS of potential
    YES EVEN ALL MOTOR
