    ANY engine can be turbo'd
    there is no "best engine to turbo"
    look around .... theres about 143890417809 topics about turboing shit
    do some research
    make a decision of what engine is right for you

    i wish i could have a b18c. as far as i know they are kinda hard to get and if you do find one they are kinda spendy. a b18 is good for 7 or more psi on the stock internals though and like E_solsi said any motor can be turbo'd

    I think he was looking for the "VTEC is kind of a pain in the ass to boost. A non-VTEC B18a/b might be a better choice" answer. Depending on what he wants it for, and how much boost he wants, some engines are much better suited than others. Try asking again with more specific questions...
