GSR and Type-R aren't engines, they are cars. They have different engines, yes, but they do not dictate the engine, especially since there are civic Type-R's, DC2 Type-R, DC5 Type-R, DA1 GS-R, etc. The DA GS-R is a B17, making I believe 170hp. The Civic type R is a B16B 1.6L making 180hp. DC2 GS-R is a B18C1 (in US) making 175hp I believe. DC2 Integra Type R (B18C5 in the US, just B18C in Japan) makes 200hp (US, 210hp Japan I think). US RSX Type S (K20A2, which is about the equivalent of the GSR now) was 200hp, JDM DC5 Integra Type-R is as much as 240hp (K20A). The best option, though, in my opinion, would probably be to build some sort of B18C. But it also depends on what kind of racing you want to do. I would be using an Integra for road racing, so I'd have to keep it within the rules. If you're drag racing, well, I think it's a poor choice, because front wheel drives are awful at the strip, no traction.































Oh, and if you were street racing, a couple of SR20s would pull a premium 2 weeks before Race Wars...or you could go with a Gallo 24. Sorry, had to make a cheesy movie reference for a cheesy illegal activity.

Type R. those engines were each hand built to reach close to perfect specs and were all made for racing

sean- actually the engine code for the JDM engines is b18C GSR and b18c Type-R... a common misunderstanding of whats thought to be a common misunderstanding.















if you're talking STOCK motor, the JDM b18C Type-R (or its USDM equivilant the b18c5) would be the faster motor.















if you're going to build it, it all depends on waht you're going to do to it. if you're planning on taking a GSR and giving it a port and polish,increase its compression ratio to 11:1, swap out the intake camshaft for a ITR one...then your GSR is now an ITR motor. if you're planning on going boost, theres no point to getting an ITR since port+polishes dont do much for boost and you'll hve to drop the compression ratio anyway.































edit: t-14, why are you comparing an i-4 to a v8? can you spell "petty"? you should be able to considering you didnt answer teh question at all, but wrote something completely non related just to bash. the ITR motor is less than half the displacement of the v8 you listed, but more than half of the HP. efficiency wise, that makes the i4 a much better built engine than yoru domestic (and wasnt "how well something is built" what you were just talkinga bout?). sorry, but once again: open mouth, insert foot.

i see, so a hand built motor still isnt nothing like a hand built domestic v8, im talking of the termie cobra 4.6, hell its underrated at 385 hp, making what i heard 430 or more. now thats hand built, not some 200 hp with 130 ft lb torque.

I'll call BS on that. I have slips to prove I can get off the line and finish a quarter in a very, very respectable time in a FWD car.

Chances are, if you can't get traction, you don't know how to launch, or you have real crappy tires.
