    Hello,

    I wanted to know what is best. Purchasing the GSR from a local shop or purchasing from online. I have been looking at some only place like NAGANOJAPANESE.COM AND JAPANESE STAR MOTORS, their prices look good. What do you guys think. Thanks for the advice

    Do not buy from japanese star motors, they sent emails and talked shit to bigger companies, u should probably buy a b18c from HMO, aka www.hmotorsonline.com
    good prices and good service as many people members of hondaswap have said.

    If you are going to get a b18c get the jdm 96-2000 type-r motor. My buddy has one in his 92 vx hatch and turned a 13.7 with only an intake and an exhaust. That motor is awesome +hp and +tq over the gsr.

    and what if he wants to boost his newly imported motor? the ITR isn't a motor for boost.

    i hate it when people say H22 for drag only. lol. 80lbs difference, its not a big deal. its not like goin from a 4cyl fox body to a 460 in the same chassis. and even if you were, spring rate can be changed. anyhoot. i agree with hmotorsonline.com all i've heard about them is great things.

    lol, it's not just the weight. The H is tilted backward in the engine bay, thus pitching the entire rotating assembly farther forward in the car and adding more weight UP FRONT. Spring rate doesn't fix that. It will understeer like a bitch. Besides, a B can be built to handle much more than a built H will because the B doesn't even have nearly the weaknesses of the H series.

    Wrong.

    Any motor can be boosted...Simply put, more money is involved with boosting a ITR than an LS, B16, GSR, D16, etc.
