You just said you dont want to spend money on a k20 because your buying a bike, but your talking about boosting a gsr which will be the same amount of money?

I would personally swpa in a gsr because they are stronger and have more tq. To me, driving a b16 is like driving a d16.

another thing.. WHY DO YOU Talk LIke THIS FOR? ITS ANNOYING

If you'reconcerned about money and want something simple, I'd do a B20 with an ITR tranny. Torque and a close ratio tranny can make a very quick little car.

Go GSR. If you feel like going turbo later on the gsr responds well to the snail.
