with the choices listed id vote for the B18B turbo
replace the LS/VTEC/T with a GSR/T and id vote for that .... the only way a LS/VTEC is a good choice is if you already have an LS otherwise it will cost you more than the GSR would.... or do a B20/VTEC/T ($$$$)

I voted b16/t setup b/c after seeing Jeffie7's car.. i'm never doubting the "tqless wonder" again. I know he has more then his fair share of shit done, but its still a badass car, he is still on stock cam gears and cams!! :)

In an idea world i'd say LS/VTEc turbo although I dont think ls/vtecs are a not good idea to begin with, a bottom end that was never designed to rev high reving at 8000+ RPM :( then with turbo I dont think it would be worth the $$ at all or reliable, but it still gets my vote b/c its got VTEC+ 1.8L displacement.

I agree with an earlier post: replace the LS/VTEC with a GSR and it would definitely get my vote B)

GSR=Turbo $$$$

LS/VTEC = Turbo $$$


B16A + T = fast
B18B + T = faster
B18C + T = fastest :)
LS/VTEC + T = not worth it

If properly tuned, wont the B16a make more power then the B18b?

Of what you listed I say B18B/T. B16A is 1.6 liters of VTEC and LS/VTEC is 1.8 liters of VTEC. B18B is 1.8 liters of a motor built the way it was supposed to be built and with certain precautionary mods it'd do better than the other two.

i would do the b18b/t and run an ITR tranny.
for short bursts, you will love it.

traction, is a different story

turbo = traction problems

the way it always be. back to yer poll, i'd go ls/t in terms of money, if you have money, go b16/t. it all comes down to how much money you got or willing to spend.
