    I am rebuilding a b18b for a turbo setup. Im looking for some input the valve train. Who should I use: crower, skunk2, toda? (open to other suggestions as well) I want to be able to rev to 8500.

    any of them can take you to 8500rpm. although, it looks like the toda units are the most high quality, but they are the most expensive. toda is more into na motors...i would personally go with the crower or skunk2's.

    I personally would avoid skunk2 retainers - too many premature failures with them. They might have them fixed in the latest revision, but I am still leery.

    Thats the way I was thinking of going too. I was just wondering if there was a better choice out there even if it cost extra.
