well..I would have to say honda motors in general respond well to boost, its just which series. This is just my 2 cents:
D-series have decent torque on the bottom end, more than B, so i like turbo D-series because it pics up where the motor left off in the higher RPMS

As far a B-go, ive never been in a 16 series, but ive been in a vortech supercharged GSR and it ROCKED!! I say turbo D, SC B

Better have a good tune for a boosted B20, or you will crack a cylinder sleeve.

You looking for a motor that you can just boost and forget about until the next rebuild? Or are you looking for something a bit more involved...

any b series loves boost, but within reason. we jus got tuning my buddies b16a2 to 22 psi with internals and 680cc injectors and its a monster
theres wheelspin at 7K in 2nd and 1/4 the way through 3rd gear... its an easy 350-400hp at low boost of 15 psi and higher on high boost obviously...

in my opinion.. you really can boost any motor you want to as long as you have supporting mods to keep from anything bad happening.``

Jesus thats a beast. What I find kinda cool is that my short block can easily go 350+ whp... but I wont tune it to that much. I would like my car to last.

I'm a fan of boosted Ds. They're cheaper and can usually get you all the power you'd need.

b16 or b20

ive heard the b18s are just harder than hell to boost with the compression issues.

also the d series are good for boost, just make sure you tune it before you even hit boost once
