OK. I was origianally going to put a b18c1 into my civic hatchback but then i heard that the b18b (i think that is what it is "ls motor") has more torque and is cheaper. I also heard that it can be turboed very easily. I was wondering cost wise how much is a b18b turboed compared to a b18c1 stock would be. And what are some of the advantages and disadvantges to these two motors.

my b18b w/ turbo setup cost the same as a stock b18c setup, and im gonna go out on a limb and say the ls/turbo is faster ;)

you would have up to a grand left over if you got the LS with a turbo setup depending on how much you got the motor for and what turbo setup.
