Default B16ASiR2 turbo vs. B18C

I know you guys are just going to tell me to search, but i want to know straight out which would be a better set up for my 95' Del Sol, a B16A SiR2 turbo or a N/A B18C. The B16A will be set at around 8-10 psi. I have the money for both i just want to know whing one will be better in the long run for mostly street and some track use.

yea b16 turbo will kill a NA gsr but in the long i think a NA GSR would be better espically if its gonna be your daily drivier.

go gsr.....without money to BUILD a b16 turbo you will regret it in the long run when it blows up, get the GSR and run the **** outta it with confidence.

it will cost money to BUILD a gsr too, and much more to make it as fast as a b16-t, all you need is good fuel management run hondata or uberdata, turbo is cheaper and faster, just dont drive it like you stole it all the time

i would go with all motor gsr, just my preference. i would slap on some bolt ons and if i decide i need more power then i would turbo the GSR motor which in theory should be faster than a b16 turbo.

why not get the gsr first and save up for a turbo kit?

it shouldnt cost much extra to pick up a gsr instead of a b16. and a turbo kit for either should be about the same price. so why not just turbo a gsr. and have all the power you need??

Would you compare a V8 to an i4? No.

Then don't compare boost to NA...

Pointless thread...

When I get done with my D16 in my sol and I still want it, I will swap in a B18C and then save up for boosting that.
