As they say in the classics - Cubic Inches Count.

The RB30E would certainly give more torque, but probably doesn't rev really well, being a SOHC engine.

They can be transformed with a RB25 head, but it's a lot of stuffing around.

My personal choice would be a RB25DE. The DOHC lets it breath well, and will probably rev to 8k.

    • I try to play a couple times a week, but yeah life man, stops you from gaming all the time  
    • I drove back-to back a B250 (i think it was 2015-2016) and my 2015 BMW 225i Active Tourer. $10k cheaper than the hatches, so got more interior space and top spec, loads of power for FWD etc. B-class = felt real cheap inside, gearbox was weird. So insta-bought the BMW because it was nicer to drive (torque converter auto) and interior was nicer. Not bad for $20k just as COVID lockdown hit (cheaper than any Japanese/Korean hatch weirdly, although a couple years older). Thankfully mine only beeps when it detects cars (no active assists), the "driver assists" are never good (makes sense when you're busy staring at your phone while you drive I suppose). tl;dr- B-series and Active Tourer are underrated (basically GLB/X1 without the extra bulk). Apologies for the rant.
