alot of people say boost the d cause if it breaks they are cheap- fact is that ls motors arent much more, maybe 2 or so hundred more, and they have more potential due to larger displacement.... buy the b18, build it up over the winter and then swap it in a turbo in the spring. this was my plan until i realized i have no money
