Default the best block?

what is the best block to get 200 hp out of a b16a2 head. I wasnt sure if its the b18c1, b18c5 or b18b, i remember someone saying that you can get 200 hp out of a b block with a b16a2 head. i will be doing forced induction as well. thanks for the help

any block is capable of 200 hp. the c5 has 195hp stock and is a very good engine, but costs a ton. a gsr would be the way to go 170 stock and more torque than a b16, still expensive. a turbo d could get you at least 200 hp on a stock bottom with a good tune.
