    im pulling my b16a2 out of my civic to put a ls/vtec in place of it. i always built turbo cars but now i want to go all motor.
    i have a chance to get a jdm civic type r head or a jdm type r head and wanted to know which one was better choice? or should i just pnp my b16 head and build it with skunk2 valve train or type r valve train. what do you guys think.

    A good ported B16 head will flow better than a factory ITR head.

    factory ITR porting blows.

    in fact, most porters/builders won't even touch itr heads, as they are too fucked to even fix.

    stick with the b16.
