    was up guys ...My question is how to get more power out of my B18 type r ... I know i cant boost cuz of my already high compression... it is running hondata s300 p28 dc headers all the stock ITR internals ... but i want more...please tell me I'm not limited to what i can do cuz i have a type r, If that was the case i should of droped a gsr and boosted the shit out of it.. some one out there has to own or knows some one with a type r with nasty power....:D

    maybe with custom pistons to lower the cr?? then boost? idk really.. i have been trying to find a good way as well, but not many people do it very often, i dont have one, just curious about what swap would be right fo me in the future lol

    lol yes but it's not so high a lil boost cant be handled.

    stock 10.4:1 b16's can handle large increases in power. not common for someone to boost an itr but it's out there. google it. cheapest, most fun, and possibly gas conservative method of getting more power..

    why did you get a motor without researching it first? you should probably have looked at this sorta thing before hand or the b18c possibilities.. either way you can still get some power out of it, like everyone else said... JRSC

    You begin where all other turbo builds should begin, and that's with research.

    If you had researched at all prior to asking this question, you would know:

    -You can turbo a "Type ARRRR" motor just as easily as any other.
    -You will need an immaculate tune.
    -You should keep the power below 230-250 whp if you want to retain reliability.

    Cliffsnotes: It can be done. Research, and do it up.
