As if you have any room to critisize someone else. mr I run 10.3 at 138 mph in the quarter on street tires. I'd believe his times b/f I believe that.

And what is hard to believe about a GSR running low 14's? I know B16A hatch's that run mid 14's. If it has some weight reduct. and the guy is a good driver, that is no problem.

At the time he posted no one said anything about weight reduction. He posted later that the GSR had no rear seat/spare etc.

Ok first of all he never said its a hatch. He said gsr which i'm thinkin an integra. Integras are heavy. With those mods theres no way he can hit low 14s.

anyway.....back on topic, what did you decide to go with head wise eckoman_pdx? Sorry I've been busy the past week and haven't had a chance to answer questions, although it seems my asistance was not needed. Still I am very curious to what you decided, and I wish you the best of luck. (Keep us posted)
I am still thinking about which head to use. I have still heard several people (and not just on here) say go with the GSR, but I understand what you said about the B16A head. The slightly bigger combustion chamber at 42.7cc and the better flowing head by 5.25% seem to go hand in hand with what is beneficial for turbo'd apps. I get the feeling from what I am hearing that maybe the B16A is better for turbo, and gsr for N/A. But I don't know, thats just my hunch. I did read in a book somewhere about something in the GSR head, maybe it was the shape of the combustio chamber, or maybe something else about the chamber, I think about reshaping the head for better quench area to promote more complete combustion. Of course, I figure doing this to the B16A or GSR would be the same, so again, I am not sure what is was I read that said the GSR was better for turbo's, nor do I remember the reason it was said. But right now, I am slightly leaning towards a B16A head I think. I used to talk to a guy in San Deigo who has a 500hp ls/vtec with a B16A head, and that seems to fit in with what you were saying about the B16A for turbos. Of course, would the better flow numbers be irrelavant after porting anf polishing the head (whichever is chosen? I still am leaning towards the B16 based on what I am gathering. I wish I remembered what is was I read about the GSR head in that book, lol

I don't know how this would play into a turbo application,but the gsr head is going to have secondary runners on the intake and the B16 head won't. I have seen some guys on teamintegra.com talking about disabling the secondary runners so maybe they are not as good as the regular B16 runners. Just a thought, maybe someone will correct anything that is not true or explain why or why not the secondary runners will help or hurt the performance from a turbo motor.

B16 head is better, also responds better to porting.

lets see this car? If its the one in your profile your full of it. I want proof. I could have sworn you said you smoked a Z06 on worn street tires? You posted a thread about it. Then you said in your last thread you were going to be in the 9's next year. (I have to see this CRIX)

yeh i guess i do...the slowest one runs low 12's...and these are only the guys im freinds with. ive seen faster bugs at the track

one turbo vr6 in an mk3 making 390 horses to the wheels not sure of what it runs at the track.
one turbo beetle making 350 to the wheels with a mostly fiberglass body thats hit high 9's at the track....and can be driven on the street with a few minor mods (the guy brings it out whenever the weather is nice)
one newly rebuilt vr6 turbo in a 97 jetta that runs low 12's in street trim (all leather seats and ac)
and a squad of 1.8t's from a shop called dubworks that are in rabbits and older gti's.

Like I said b/f your claims don't add up 350 hp 9 sec street legal beetle with minor mods......minor modifications.............the slowest VW you know runs low 12's.....dude I'll be in VA next semester with hybridsol, you set your boys up so we can run em down, oh and by the way we have a 10 sec crx as well BUT ITS NOT STREET DRIVEN! You can be shure to see that in the near future I'm sick of all these lying f*cks.
(I want pictures) PROVE IT!
