b18b ls/vtec build
i plan on putting a b16 head on. i eventually want to boost it later. i am slowly learning more and more about the complications within the build. but i want to know if you guys can help me clarify some things.
b16 head requires p30 ecu? or will p72 work, chipped?
how reliable is the ls water and oil pump. if i leave them, stock ls timing belt will work right?
if i plan to boost at around 12 pounds, would just pistons, rings and rod bolts, and bloack guard be enough? how sturdy are ls rods?
what do lma's do?
finally, how easy and reliable is the golden eagle ls/vtec conversion kit to install?

see im really trying to decide wether to just slap one of those ssautochrome turbo kits on and see how it happens...i had a fully built boosted 99 si and i cant get away from boost, but i miss vtec too. so i donno if i want to boost for fun or vtec it for reliability. i know someone who's had their ss manifolds boosting at 18 lb's and has had it on for over 6 months.

after 96 the pumps are all the same, or it might be 98, i forget... but everything else is great
