    Would any one know what compression would be better, 8.81 or 9.01 or 9.21 for turbo on a b18c5 setup?

    or a real answer:
    depends on the turbo size, amount of power looking to gain, method of tuning, and streetability.

    No joke. This guy should sell his ITR if he wants to boost so he doesn't ruin a good all-motor engine. With the extra money he saves by buying a GSR he could afford aftermarket pistons and rods.

    I never said impossible. It's just impractical. And a waste of a purpose-built motor. Why not save money by making a wiser choice? :p

    I want to use the itr for the type r cank,water pump, oil pump, ect. type r is alot better than the gsr or ls version.....i plan on geting it sleeved and rods.

    And why is my question dumb ?

    I thought 8.81 would be to low but at the same time i was told the lower the better.

    btw , are the skunk turbo cams good ?? any info would help alot!!!

    the big deal is that the type r is built with higher compression as a high performance NA motor...

    you take a type r and rip it apart and lower the compression to run boost then you should just sell the itr motor and get a gsr and use the extra money to build it...

    still, the itr head outflows the b16 and gsr heads.
    the crank is the same thing as a gsr's.
    sleeving, youre going to replace the rods and pistons anyway.

    so, whatever- its his choice, and 2k more for a slightly better flowing head, and a tranny with a crap lsd :)

    The LSD is fine. Just don't try to launch it with 500whp and slicks and it'll be ok.

    the crank on a type r is heavyer than a gsr for higher reving, and made better ,
