    I once saw a "canadian", b18c4... That was odd, but it was what it was... B18C = jdm itr/gsr... just look at the intake manifolds to tell the difference, or the casting code on the head for further assurance.

    All motor, I would go with a b16/ITR transaxle. For daily driving natually aspirated, or even boosted, I would go with the gsr transaxle. Boosted, I would build it with gsr/ls gears and be REALLY cool. :thumbsup:

    Yes, because we all know longer gears are better for boost. ^_^ [/sarcasm]

    IMO, I'd stick with an ITR or B16 tranny for any application.
    Shorter gears = better acceleration no matter the situation.

    If you want great acceleration and can suffer the short gearing, B16 rocks.
