    nah man theres plenty of forums on here showing ls/vtec builds, and honestly theres wiring diagrams everywhere if your up to the challenge and save money, let us know what you want to do with it, its your ride, id deff go with the coilovers though it makes a worlds difference

    either way, it seems that you need to have it re-wired.
    do that, and while they are doing that, tell them to go ahead and run the wires for vtec. that way, you're covered for that regardless of which way you want to go.

    then, if you want a solid dd that will be reliable as hell and never have to fear being stuck, stay away from the franken-builds. ls/b20-vtecs arent reliable.
