    Default GSR with turbo or Type R with N2o whats the better swap

    I am trying to deside on which swap to do on my 93 civic hb . I am looking for some help from people who have done swaps.I am considering The type R swap more but I am not to sure about it on the highway.If I go with the type r I will be porting the head and putting in stage 3 jun cams and valve train and individual throttle bodys with a 60 shot form NX. If I go with the gsr I will just slap on a turbonetics kit for $3500. Lets here some opinions. This car will be used at the track and the street/ highway.It will mostly just be used while I wait for my JDM cars to come in as they sell.

    gsr > c5 when you take into account the extra $$$ the c5 costs.

    I am also loooking at the fact that the type r has a 8900 redline stock and with jun cams and valve train can push over 10,000rpms on a stock bottom end

    If you can afford the Type-R route you mentioned

    Imagine the sheer enjoyment of hearing those throttle bodies scream at 9000rpm.

    Granted there would be faster options, but you should consider the enjoyment factor. BOV's might sound cool in a ricey sort of way, but the smile from those TB's...I'd be making constant road trips to Vancouver and back with that.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
