    if you want cheap, you'll be boosting 8lbs on stock internals

    cheap upgrade for boost on a b16a, would be to ditch the b16 bottom end for a good used ls one, replace the conrod bolts on the ls rods with arp ones, and do the same with the head studs. total cost would be less than $800, and you'd be ready for around 10-12 psi. you may want to add a vafc also so you can tune out any bad bugs.

    Plus the cost to get the machine work and parts to put the B16A head on the LS.

    oh yeah, and i'm sure theres more stuff too, but i think it would still be cheaper and make more power in the long run.

    just my $.02, flame away. :p
