why not go with a jdm B18C and put some skunk 2 stage 2 cams in it. That would be cheaper, and make about the same horsepower. Unless you wanted the type-r engine for bragging rights. anyone see a downside to this route? some of those engines even have lsd w/ them. plus you get the higher gear ratio for highway. Any other thoughts?

with the type R, your paying mostly for the high compression pistons, more agressive cams, PnP head, and the tranny. The tranny is great for accleration and is wonderful for autoX and road course. If you want to stick NA, it is a great engine that is great form the start and even better if you ever decide to do more to it.
