GSR swap it and Bar it to make it legal. Then do the usual bolt ons with the GSR engine.Or if you want to stick with your stock, slow engine, get CARB legal intake and exhaust. For the intake, look for AEM, PasswordJDM, or Injen. When you need to smog it, just put back on your stock intake system.

I agree with Zee on this one for the most part, but you can build up that B18A engine you already have and have a VTEC head put on it. Then you'll have an engine that has the VTEC qualities with the added torque of a bigger displacement over the GSR setup. That means quicker acceleration. Also, your engine is more turbo-friendly than the GSR setup too. Word of advice: if you decide to have the VTEC head put on your engine, make sure it's done by someone who truly knows what they are doing. I've seen too many Frankenstein engine with reliability problems because they weren't built right. On the other hand, I've seen more that were built well and are trouble-free. Still, a knowledgeable, experienced builder is what you need for this set up.
