    I want to race it sometimes, and also I want to get to 13 flat in the quarter mile? Which motor will help me get there the quickest with the least amount of work and money to spend on it?

    they are all great motors, i would go with the Type R or the GSR, the GSR's intake manafold has a thing in it that looks like the flap, in the throttle body, there are 4 flaps for each hole, they are normaly colesed during normal drivin conditionns, they block a 2nd passageway for the air to go, but when you hit i think 4500 or something around there they open up, giving u bad ass torque. so half the time this actualy has more torque than the Type R. but the Type R is bad assssss. i have read about a lot of import drag cars that have the Type R, and they are a very fast motor, they type r puts out like right around 200hp, the GSR puts 179 about. the bigest thing is how much $$$ do u got to put into it? the Type R is gona be the most expencive outa them all i believe. good luck

    the guy above this ---> :asshat: ---> :usuck: ----> :nobreed: i know this for a fact from some of his other posts, just trying to keep the ball rolling seeing as how i hate people who steal cars or condone it!

    as for the topic, from what i understand an h22 swap puts you in the 13's stock though im not sure if it will slap right in or not i just have heard that h22+civic= high 13 sec times though i would opt for the GS-R (b18c1) or type R (b18c5) over the h22.

    lay off the emoticons. damn. and 1) i said i hope he gets jacked because he is SIXTEEN with a tv in his fuckin riced out car, he didnt work for shit. maybe he bought some of it, but im willing to bet my car his parents bought most of the shit. 2) he hasnt gotten jacked daily, so dont even say that. i think you have some unresolved issues with theft, dont take it out on me that your shit got jacked.

    GSR+turbo=win

    or cheaper

    built LS+turbo=win

    Who cares how old he is or how he got his stuff, as long as it's legit. End of that discussion.

    All motor=ITR

    Turbo=GSR Turbo or LS Turbo

    Cheap 13's=B16 Nitrous
