    I am in the process of changing cars and I was thinking of buying a EK hatch and installing in a GSR engine. On the other hand, I can just buy a GSR and save the $ on the swap.

    My plans are to build the bottom end, headwork , cam and all of the externals including Hondata. Turbo it with a custom t3 turbo etc. Looking for ~350whp.

    What will the difference in 1/4 mile times be with this hp in both cars? I think GSR is ~2600lbs and EK HB DX is ~2300lbs.

    Is the weight reduction worth the extra cost?

    We're talking car vs car, no extra parts or nos to make up for the difference in weight.

    for every less 100lbs is .10sec off your quarter mile
