    Sell the LS motor and buy a Type R swap

    f that. You could build an awsome turbo setup for $5000 and be making twice as much power as that ITR swap.

    i just don't think you could get a type r head or build the head and still boost and build the bottom end as well for under 5k. it'd be really close.

    It would be really hard. My moderate turbo setup cost 3.5K. That would leave 1.5K to rebuild the bottom and head. So if you skip sleeves it is totally doable.
