why not just get a1.9/2.0stroker kit for your gsr motor....and if your got the b20 would you be swapping the gsr head on it or just those listed mods non vtec....if no vtec head you pobwont be as fast as you are now

if you get the b20 with the vtec head you should be able to hit high 13s

if you just got the 1.9 strokerKIT you would not be majorly affecting your reliablilty...you will prob get better times out of the stroker and tho you are slightly weakening your motor with the bore that should be more reliable if done correctly than a b20 vtec conversion...
now if you go any larger than 1.9/2.0 you may have some additional work ahead of u.
if you were planning on boosting get the b20(reliable with boost and a stock head)....if you want to stay na get the stroker kit for your gsr

personally i would stroke your gsr motor

Hell I'd just throw a turbo setup on the gsr and call it a day.

not that a turbo wouldn't be great but im really trying to keep this buildn/a and not boost it. just my preference. another ? i have then is would switching to itr pistons and rods be comparable. or is that overrated as some people have told me.
