    Yea its the most expensive out of the swaps you listed.Theres nothing wrong with it.It's better than the B16 and LS but pretty evenly matched with the Ls-VTEC.I would rather go with the LSV though

    True,i would rather boost a gsr but for NA i would definitley go lsvtec.However there are alot of high hp lsvtecs out there too.I guess its just an opinion on which is better to boost.

    please correct me if im wrong but its not an opinion of which is better to boost the gsr has lower compression compared to an LSvtec which is why its would do better with boost and for that same reason lsvtec is better for an all-motor build, this is of course talking about better platforms not necessarily potential cause with money and time anything can perform how you want. -mike

    thats what i figured but u would think u would see more i have a gsr crx im working on i got the motor in but im still working on the swap but im just surpirsed it seems like a bastard of motors when swapping but its ok ill have one whats the best turbo to use on a homemade setup i wanna build my own kit only buy a blow off and intercooler but all else fabricated i dont want to much boost anyway not yet at least i want to keep the motor relatively stock internals
