it is a poor mans type r engine. basically your getting more compression out of it and more hp and tq and is a cheap alternative to buying a jdm spec b18

Just like the guy above me said. Your be making a poor man's type r. The SI head (b16a2) flows better then the gs-r head in certain rpm ranges. But many say overall it's better and others say it's not. But you would get a hp gain.

It's debatable. The B16A head flows better, but the combustion chamber is bigger, so it will lower your compression (NOT RAISE IT!) Spend your $ on something that will help more; like an aftermarket intake manifold or a port & polish job, or both. That way your stock head will flow even better than the B16A.
