    I have a 2001 Acura Integra LS. Its all stock at the moment, as I just got it recently. My Question for you all is wither I should Turbo Charge(or Supercharge, Whatever gives more power) my B18b1 and do some headword. Or Get a B18c5.
    The B18c5 Will cost 4500US, But For 4500US I know I can do alot to my B18b1.
    I want whatever will give me the most bang for the buck.

    Thanks for your input.

    I totally agree with onesikdb8 and ahhvtec.

    Believe me, spooling a turbo is MUCH more "pleasurable" than VTEC engaging.

    Thanks for the input Guys. I am going to Turbo Charge my B18b1. I plan on having the head port and polished. Is there anything else I need done to get the most power of it besides installing the Turbo and doing the headwork?

    Don't plan on more than 8-9 psi if you're leaving your bottom-end stock.

    There are PLENTY of articles and discussions about building an LS-Turbo.

    if your budget was 4500, you can make a bulletproof bottom end AND do your headwork, and if you spend wisely, piece together a good turbo kit. otherwise, you're stuck with low boost. If the money's in your pocket, slap the GSR head on there, then boost it.

    boost + vtec = fun
