    it will say b18c and not b18c1, jdm motors don't have the # after the engine code

    both jdm r's and gsrs are stamped B18c, the gsr will have the dual runner manifold and the head will be stamped p72, while the type r head will be marked pr3-"x"

    there are a lot of different opinions on boost on a stock motor, i would guess at max 10psi with a good tune. boost is all about the tune

    if you build the motor you could probably boost as much as you wanted. I would read up in the forced induction forum as well as the motor building forum for your buld questions. A shop would probably rape you on the price of building a motor
