    anyone running a poor man type r on here? For those that dont know its a gsr block with a b16 head...1.8l block and the flow of the si head. How efficient is the setup? any power increases torque or hp?

    Yes, I'm running a GSR block with a B16 head. You're not going to get any increases in power- you'll just lose some compression, lose your secondary butterflies, and not really change any of the flow characteristics much

    Yours won't look anywhere near that if you just throw a B16 head on a GSR block. :p

    ls rods+ls crank wont fit in b16 block, unless its a b16b block which means you essentially still have a b18b ls/vtec :)

    Really high pin pistons is what it takes! I'd still rather have a solid oil control ring land, but that looks like it'll work.

    damn thats high as hell. i guess using that piston in a b16b will give it the rod ratio of a motorcycle(btw, isnt it already like 1.8-ish rr?)
