    What are the big adv and disadv of swapping or upgrading the liters in my teg. For example if i swapped a Stroker B18b Ls motor into my teg as apposed to the 1.8 I have now...Is it even worth the swap if im planning on running boost..

    I don't get it? how are you going to gain cubic inches by swapping 1.8 parts for 1.8 parts?

    or wait... is the b18b you want to swap in already stroked?

    I think it'd be cheaper to just buy the stroker kit itself.

    the advantage is more power

    disadvantage is a proportionally worse r/s ratio, meaning higher forces are exerted on the rotating assembly at higher revs
