h2B vs poor mans R
so my buddy and i are having this BIG arguement about what we think would be a more ideal set up for an NA build for a track car.

-hes doing a mild built h22, stock bottom end, stock head ports, cams, valves, h2b kit, axles, etc, b16 tranny, no lsd.


-my set up (being built), GSR block, LS crank & rods, RS machine pistons, b16a head, (havnt decided on the cams an what not yet) but its stock ports, leaning towards skunk 2 tuner stg 2 w/ accommodating valve train, but considering some blox cams, and a pretty thin head gasket. stock b16 tranny.

the h22 in reality is only about 60 or so lbs heavier then the b-series, but even that little bit of weight can upset the balance of the car.

lets think of it as same car, same suspension, etc, what do you guys think?
B > H

When you say track car, are you talking about the strip or road course/autox? Either way, I personally think the poor mans R is better. I would honestly say that the H2B may give the poor mans R a run on the strip but on a road course it's a different story. The B is not only lighter, it's WAY more rev happy. This of course is much more suited to long grueling days hanging out at redline for extended periods of time. I don't know which would be better for the road courses but I know what one would last longer if both treated exactly the same.

yea were both making our cars more so HPDE friendly. nice having a job that hustles in 400-500 a week part time while in college. but once i finish this build, use it in the spring/early summer, i see myself parting it out, rocking a single in the EJ for a daily and picking up a new toy. once i get more seat time under my belt i wanna experience awd or rwd :p
man sounds like yall are going to just have to see which will be a better driver. i personally like the poor mans R. dont know to much about the H2B.
