    to those who didn't know...i destroyed my b16a3 block a few weeks ago.

    so i ordered a type R block from honda and its finally running. all OEM parts were used, minus a hondata intake manifold gasket which was purchased at secret services here in florida. i've only put 200 miles on it so far...and only taken it into vtec twice although it pulled hard for the 2 or so seconds i was there...

    once i hit 1000 miles the motor will be ready...but overall i'm very happy and hopefully i'll make decent power when i dyno in a few weeks.

    best is a matter of opinion, not fact

    cuz frankly, IMO, the b16b is a much better built motor than the ITR will ever be.

    the CTR motor is basically the same as an ITR motor. it has a better rod/stroke ratio and makes less power.

    i'd rather have an ITR motor because it makes more power. it may not rev quite as well...but it makes way better power and a LOT more torque.

    and 4.7 final drive may be too short with this setup...hence the reason i'd like to go back to 4.4.
