    p30 (jdm b16) p73 (jdm/usdm itr) would be your best bets.

    highest cr to lowest is jdm p73/jdm b16/usdm itr

    depends on what you want.

    P30 or P73-00 (JDM) - 11.5-11.6ish CR respectively
    P73-A0 (USDM) or PR3 - 11.0-11.3ish CR respectively
    PCT (CTR) - 13.1 CR

    all of these can be slightly altered with milling and different headgasket thicknesses

    You are going to have to do some serious tuning to make those run on pump gas. It is possible but you better be willing to put some money into a tunable ECU and dyno time.
