Default How much hp can a b16a head and b18c1 make naturaly aspirated?

Alright guys im buying a b16a head and gsr b18c1 block with a b18c5 transmission. Im going to port and polish the head, and upgrade all the stock internals on the motor from top to bottom. Im not turbo charging the car I'm building a N/A motor. I know turbo charging is cheaper than N/A but its not as reliable. This is going to be a DD and just want something fast and decent. I have 10k just to throw into the motor. So money isn't a problem. Just wondering how much hp i can get with aftermarket internals in the head and block, including bolt ons etc.

If you have 10k to throw why not just buy a 500HP crate motor and save all that work.

A B16 head will have a lower compression than a stock GSR long block. If you are going to do the B16 head swap, you might as well get the b16 pistons in it too. You should end up with about 200HP.
